Happy Friday … Put a Bird on it!

{In case you don’t know what this print is referring too … first, what rock are you living under and second, I’m sorry you’re living under a rock … go here to clear things up.}

It seems that I’m not immune to the whole bird-craze. I’ll blame it on my close proximity and frequent visits to Portland, Or-e-gone.

COS {Change of Subject}, but also kind of related … I like to ‘do’ something while I hang out with my Sweets in the evening watching TV. I have a hard time just sitting. So I like to find little handiwork projects, like sewing buttons on coffee coats or list takers, snipping thread, turning mini wallets … OR on the occasion that I don’t have any of that to do … embroider or make something. I also like to write run-on sentences and justify them with my use of ‘…’ ellipsis.

My most recent project was this little guy::

He’s my first try and well, he’s a work in progress. His poor little legs just can’t support him yet.

So, lucky for him, he found another feathered friend who gave him a little place to perch himself.

“Birds of a feather, flock together.”

Seriously, isn’t this the cutest pincushion? Thanks Bestie, I heart it so!

At my girls weekend {two weekends ago} I wanted something ‘mindless’ to work on while chattering away with my sweet friends. I decided to give the ‘Little Bunting Bird’ pattern a go. It was so fun to create and while I am very much an amateur embroider, I’m hooked. Now I’m just waiting for inspiration to hit on what to do with it …

So it patiently waits on my board and keeps me company.

Happy Friday!


  1. Yes the handiwork stuff is so fun isn’t it? I really enjoyed making that fire (I finally finished it!) and have been looking for another little project. Maybe a bird… :)
