oh wow .... that is such a fantastic idea ... i know i have no bird fabric but will go in search of some before i sign up ... or i will end up having to do paper piecing on 6 blocks and that my friends may be the end of me ... haha ...


so let me check what i can find first ....


oh .. i do have some rooster fabric here ... but they don't fly around in the sky ... off to ebay to have a look ... and if not there then maybe iddybiddydesigns.com may have something

oh Lorna i totally agree ... but i am not sure if i have THAT much time haha ... i hand stitch oh so slowly ... i see others fly thru hand stitching and wish that i could half of what they do in the same period of time ... but not so .. my hands and my brain give up .... more so the brain ... i get a little bored with it and then get very easily distracted ...

i swear i have ADD at times ....... hubby tells me i should be on ritalin they way my mind works ... or should i say overworks .... some days it is so bad i walk in circles ... haha ... but i have always been like it so i guess i am used to it .... it is either that or i am just hopeless ...

Wow girls, Those birds are so pretty. I was going to do mine today but I just got a call for help. The Deanery is putting on a fund raiser dinner this afternoon and need me to "whip them into shape" as I have just been told. Oh the life of a retired girl.
Well need to finish this friends dress and shower. Will try and do mine tonight or tomorrow


Cheers Ann

Hi Ann, you sound busy! As for being retired, everyone else thinks that is a genuine reason for asking you for your help..... "she is retired now and has plenty of time"! ha ha Just ask my mother in law, she was even more busy when she retired than she was working full time and volunteering! ha ha

By the way......... what is............."The Deanery"? I have visions in my head of you 'whipping them into shape'........... but the visions are pretty sketchy not knowing what The Deaney is? ha ha

Yes Bobbie you are right that is it. It used to a children's summer camp run by the Anglican Church. It was used for many many years and it was very busy. It is now called The Deanery. A woman named Kim Thompson bought it and is redoing it. It is very hippie dippy sort of thing. It is a klm up the road from me. When I go for my walks that is where I walk to.

We were just up there to a knitting thing there a few weeks. There may be pictures on their facebook page.

Well Bobbie, what was that rule regarding fabric stash and storage space in the bus?
You get to buy some new fabric if you use some of your stash?
Hope you can find something suitable to use or you might have to send the new fabric back? affraid

lol!
