Thank you Mdm Samm and Lana for this fun Springtime blog hop. Perfect way to start spring... I love watching the birds outside my kitchen and 4 season windows. They keep me entertained as they flit and fly about. I have many wonderful visitors to my various bird feeders. I can count on the Chickadees and Cardinals to stop by. The Robins like the birdbath. Occasionally a Bluebird or Wood Pecker stops by long enough for me to see them. Once my gardens are blooming then I am graced by the Hummingbirds presence. I especially like to look out for the Orioles in the spring. As soon as they show up, I know springtime is right around the corner. I am longing for spring, so tired of the cold and having to heat my house. I'm sooooo looking forward to opening the windows and enjoying some springtime freshness. My sister has spotted her first robin at her house, that means in a week or two they will be appearing here. I can't wait!!!
I had a hard time finding this fabric, but I did track some of it down on ETSY. It was fun to work with. I got the panels and I wanted to make something to show the individual designs off. I of coarse waited until last minute to work on my projects, mainly because I didn't know what I wanted to make! So at two o'clock Sunday morning I knew what I wanted to make. I worked right up to the deadline!
|I made two pretty mug mats...|
(The birdhouse it a treasure, my dad made it,
I use it as display in my house now) My dad used to love
watching the birds, much of my love for our feathered friends
comes from my dad.
|I added a pretty border using a 'row' of fabric panels|
onto a tea towel and made a matching handy heart
hot pad. It's a pretty matched set.
|I am looking forward to seeing this year's first robin! What kind|
of pretty birds do you have visit? Leave me a sweet comment for a
chance to win a PDF copy of my 'Bluebird' applique pattern.
I will pick out two winners at the end of the hop~
