Birdies and a woodland nymph...

Just wanted to share these pictures of some birdie projects I have been working on.


Problems with my blogger, so I hope the picture and text are in the right place!!!
This little green bird has been made for my dear friend Patti G. We are both in a fabric book round robin swap. Her template was this beautiful little birdie with a hidden pocket in the wings.

Inside the pocket I have made a little woodland nymph (or sprite as my friend Dot calls it). She hold a little twig with crystal dewdrops (thanks from Keron Lee) and a lovely little gold heart.

This photo is of the other side of the bird. I have used some of the seven gypsies gaffer tape for the wording... love that stuff! The fabrics used are from the Tina Givens range.... I love them too!

This photo is one of my Funky Bird quilties that I made for my friend Elizabeth (from my Creative Chix yahoo group) to celebrate her birthday. Her package has now arrived so I can safely put the pic. on my blog. We have a Secret Sister Birthday Swap within the group and you send your person a shoe box size package with goodies. Must include one handmade item .... lovely surprise on the day!!!

Now.... I am going to post this, so here's hoping that the pictures appear (instead of all the gobbeldy gook I can see) and this everything is where it should be.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

All of your birds are adorable, but this is my new favorite. The little sprite has the sweetest face... All in all it is beautiful! Love the quilt too. The funny thing is that I just sketched a similar bird (I'll take a picture and send it to you). xo
