Sorry it's been awhile since my last post. We've had some computer connection issues lately.
I recently took part in the Birds Bees and Butterflies exchange at Stitched With Love Exchanges. I never realized how many bird bee and butterfly patterns I had until this exchange.You can see all the lovely stitching at the gallery here.
My partner Marcy sent me such a lovely package. She knew that I like birds and that fall is my favorite season. Isn't this owl so pretty? Such lovely colors. Marcy told me that it is by JMD Designs.
Marcy, you spoiled me! Thank you so much.
I stitched for Kathy (no blog).

I made a muslin bag with crushed walnut shells for the filling. I found some bee beads at my not so local box craft store.. so I placed them on some eye pins with some amber and black bicones.
I added a tea bag holder, some bird post-its, an emery board, some bird named threads, and some bird patterns by her favorite designers. I'm so glad she liked what I sent.
Until next time - Have a wonderful day!
