From Canada to the Moon in Stitches


How exciting to come home on a hot hot night after school and find that I had mail from Canada. The world of Bloggers is such a generous one. Not only did I find delicious chocolates from Wendy of Snippets of a Quilter, but she also sent me some lovely little surprises as well. I just adore the pin cushion and will put it to use straight away... and some georgous fabrics to play with. What joy to find others with a passion for fabric!!

I have also been having a go at some little owls from Moonstitches.

They were fun to make. I will attach them to a little string for hanging.

Little Chick Chick is continuing to bring the family much pleasure and chirping as she grows larger each day. Notice how I used the word "she!"

I hope you enjoy the yummy chocolates. And find a good use for the fabrics as well.

The owls are so sweet and will be really cute all hanging in a row.

Annie your new website looks so beautiful and professional - I am most impressed! Now the owls...well as you know I am not a great stitcher, but I see "paper art" written all over them! I think this would be a great activity to do with the holidays...they would make very cute cards. Thanks as always for wonderful ideas!
