Sharing the love...

I recently shared some of these fabrics I picked up 

in a destash.....


with my lovely friend Julie, in New Zealand.

In return she offered to make me a felt birdie!


But true to Julie's generous nature she sent two 

birdies, a pear and a magazine!

The patterns can be found here, in case you want to 

make your own!

I did manage to stitch this little decoration,


and have been working on my wonky stars!



for my "Oh Christmas Tree" quilt.

Happy sewing!

  6. The ornaments are adorable! And so festive too. It looks like your wonky stars are providing you with a fun burst of color.

  7. Love your wonky stars, Susan! They're the best, probably because of their wonkiness, and the bright colors. They'll make a fabulous quilt. What a thoughtful friend you have. Enjoy the ornaments. Since we don't put up a tree - because no one comes to see us - I just don't get into ornaments anymore.

  13. Gorgeous. I think you had better put the 'partridges' and the pear in a tree, and sing the 12 days of Christmas song. :)
