Bird making...

Crafting for a fair is something I enjoy. This afternoon I have whipped up some little birdie ornaments to go on the school craft stall. They are fussy cut from Spotlight fabric. Easy peasy.


The last few days has seen more progress on the Marjolein Bastin cross stitch design along the lower border of the Winter section. Click here to see my progress this week. Soon I will be stitching pumpkins.

I forgot to post my TUSAL...here tis. I think the jar is looking quite healthy and very pretty. Who knew that the ends of threads could make such a lovely collection.

Took me a while to figure out the background for your ort jar. My first impression was whoa... That's a huge cupcake ^.^

Hugs,
