It's For The Birds
I want to chirp, chirp, chirp about all the birdy creations flying around blog land on Mdm Samm's "It's For The Birds" blog hop. With head birder Mary guiding all the fledglings from the nest a truly creative and varied flock appears.
With so many different birds to pick from I have a hard choice. I began with a new bag.
A bird who sews would be special indeed. I found this pattern in Quilter'sWorld, April 2013.
This sweet bird is "Livin' The Tweet Life". He will eventually live in a quilt.
We are gathering for a family reunion this summer. Birds of A Feather Flock Together seemed perfect for a wall hanging to celebrate the gathering.
Heritage counts so the birds came fashionably dressed in Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and maple leaf tartans. All the family will gather together in the nest which nurtured our ancestors.
Wise Old Owl
A wise old owl sat on a oak,
The more he sat, the less he spoke.
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Why can't we be like that wise old bird ?
My new pillow came from a kit "Who Who" by Kitty Kat Creations. This sat as a UFO on my shelf for a long time. A perfect chance to finish stitching. And when I bought those buttons I had no idea where I would use them. They make perfect, if not scary eyes.
These two young ladies visited an Aunt last summer and tried applique for the first time. They stitched wonderful owl pillows.
Sew glad you stopped by to see my feathered friends. Visit the other nests for more inspiration.
