Thank You!

Karen was the lucky winner of my jar contest! Her prize is this sweet little birdie. I made her from a soft creamy piece of wool and cotton script fabric and I embellished her with buttons and trim from the jar.  The spool she is perched on was also from the jar.
Hope you enjoy her, Karen!
Our Spring Open House was a success!  Thanks to everyone who came by for a visit.  It was so fun to chat and hear about your latest projects. What a beautiful time of year! I just love stitching in the backyard listening to the birds chirp.
 New threads and ribbons...
 Everyone who came got to take home a little kit to make their own
bird on a spool.  Here is a photo for reference.  They are quick and super fun to create!
(OOPS! Please note that the body piece should be cut on the fold
I forgot to notate that on the pattern piece - sorry about that!)

 My cute friend Lisa shared a few projects she has done and is currently working on. 
Her stitching and embellished work are beautiful!
 Enjoy your Spring, feathering your nest, and creating!
