Back To School Birdie Give Away...
School is starting. Daily routines are being carved out. There's a hint in the air of the cooler weather to come. I think it's time for a give away. Don't you?
I'm calling this little birdie quilt "Mending". The fabrics are the warmer and autumnesque (is that a word?) Flea Market Fancy prints. Mending reminds me of getting things together and falling back in line and repairing or recuperating from summer.
I've also decided to reopen my etsy shop (in the near future) and list my birdie quilts. I have a really hard time parting with handmade items for money. I much prefer swapping or giving them away. But with that being said, there is a time and place for everything and I'm going to take a chance and see what comes from it.
Also on my mind is a swap. A charm swap. I'm thinking of something like "Something Vintage, Something Modern". More details on that later, when I actually have some details on it :)
Still working on tutorials for the paper pieced Kitchen Aid mixer block and the wonky sashing Little Apples Quilt, which will now be called the Topsy Turvy Little Apples Quilt thanks to my friend Leslie! I think that is more fitting than wonky, don't you?!
Alright, so enough gibba jabba. Do you want the "Mending" little birdie quilt? Leave a comment by midnight Tuesday September 6th and I'll announce the winner Wednesday morning September 7th. Which is perfect because Wednesday is mending day!!! That's for all you Little House lovers out there :)
