    Birdies- new project with pic's

    I am so happy, I was able to post the pics( I think)- sorry teh pics are not great quality but original they are 2.0 MB and I had to reduce to 1.9 so they look awful.
    This is is a new project that I found in Little Mis Shabby's blog. See the link http://www.littlemissshabby.com/2010...s-supply-list/

    They are in the 11th block of 12 but I just completed the second.
    Thanks Gladdys GV09 for letting us know about this SAL.

    I love your blocks! I had seen these on her blog, and I also have an embroidery book I bought from Amazon that has a lot of bird and other whimsical figures that remind me a lot of these...one of these days I hope I can get semi-caught up, as I would love to make a set of these....you have done a great job!

    Both blocks are great! However, I particularly love the little bird with earmuffs.

    I saw this earlier this year and made the decision to pass. Well - - - change of mind - I just copied all the PDF's. I can visualize this embroidery on white surrounded by squares of 30's fabrics. Thanks for the link!
