A little bird outside my window...

Look at the pretty little bird I spotted outside my window perched in a tree. What a rare bird to be seen!!

I wonder what you would call this bird?



Well, I know you girls are smart and have guessed it's not really a real bird.
It's actually a........ pincushion!
I know. Totally cute, right??


I was at my LQS last week and they just happened to have one copy of the new Nancy Halvorsen book waiting there just for me to buy.
So many cute things to sew in this book!!
I knew when I saw the bird that it was the perfect thing to go along with what I made the other day for a special lady.





So, they are already for take off. Safe flight little birdie, hang on to that bag!!

That is too cute. And I love the little bag below it. So my twin sister just moved to Canada. I need to save my money so I can go visit her sometime!

I would call that bird "Cute!" And so is the bag. Great work!

How beautiful! I sould have a look for that book. Love the tummy fabric... is it Fig & Plum? I think I have it in kind of a dandelion color and also plum.

And the pattern you were asking about is called the Village Sampler by countryquilts.ca

You should check out her site... she's a local lady here in Abbotsford and such a sweetheart with awesome patterns & books...

Have a great day! Kimberly

I love the bird and the bag so much... and they're MINE! I'm the lucky recipient of these adorable gifts thanks to Pay It Forward. What's especially funny is that I received two packages today - this, and my order from Connecting Threads which included the Sew Necessary book. I have to say, the bird and bag are even more adorable in person. Thank you!
