Little Birdies....

December brought the last of the Birdie Stitcheries that I have just loved doing this year....



These have been free from Little Miss Shabby (and they are still available - just go to the Birdie Stitches tab at the top of her blog page)


I think it will be a perfect quilt for a spare bed.. especially for when little grandiegirls come visiting... so many pretty things to look for.....

I hope you are enjoying the Christmas Cheer ...... thanks Shez for this one...

If you were around in 1919 and came upon the following poster 




  
I mean, 
seriously
 
 
Wouldn't you just keep drinking?

Love the colors you used, really fun piece.
Congratulations on the baby go win, you will have fun. I got the apple core, just need to get used to doing curves but I wanted to make a runner with it. Like the new rick rack, that is on my list for future dies.

I love the fabric you chose to surround your stitcheries. It is so bright and cheerful and your birdies are delightful. This has been a a really fun BOM to do. Just wish mine were all done. Nola

Your birdies are just so cute and the quilt will be just beautiful.
That poster is certainly a reason to drink. I think they got it wrong. They should have said 'If you keep drinking we WILL kiss your lips!!!' Scary lot! LOL!

Allie said...

And oh that picture...that would make me take up drinking for sure, lol!! How funny!!!
