Le Challenge

This month's challenge was "Wings" so guess what has wings? Birds!

So I submit to the Le Challenge Group
I am excited to show you what I made! Working to create a little texture for my birdies I used Aurifil Thread 12 wt. It is wonderful to use to hand stitch, embroider, or cross-stitch. I fussy cut the birds out of this cute fabric "Just Hanging" and went to work stitching. The stitches really look great on printed fabric designs. I am new to embroidery and can't do it for a long time but I really love the way it looks. I hope you do too! The basket pattern I used I have blogged about before, so you can find out about it HERE, if you would like to know more. It is a great pattern! Thank you for stopping by In The Boon Docks" and please visit in the future!
Create and be unique, Lisa

It's for the Birds

Image
Hi! Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"!
At our house we have lots of birds flying, eating and running around. Some days the wild turkeys come down and eat up the chicken feed for my Rooster and three hens that live here on our property. I have (6) pullets (bigger than a chick but smaller than a hen) that I have raised from chicks that live in a "hen house". Cardinals, bluejays, nut hatches, and many more birds nest on the hill behind our house. Can you tell I like birds? Well I do!

So when Madam Samm announced this blog hop I just had to sign up! Her blog hops are so popular that if you don't sign up quick you never get in. The challenge is trying to come up with ideas to excite the readers and please the Madam! She is very nice but expects your best! I am kind of worried this time her "It's for the Birds" and mine aren't quite the some. But she is very generous and always cheers us on! Thank you Madam Sammand our cheerleader Mary fromI …

I am working on a pouch for my partner in theModern Scrappy Bits Swap. I am using Perle Cotton to outline the boxes on both the front and the back of the pouch. Having never done this before it is a mystery how it will turn out but I do like the colors. Pairing Robert Kaufman, Kona Solid "Coal" and a mini charm of V and Co., "Simply Color" makes for a bright and happy pouch.. Here "In The Boon Docks", it is very cold and windy! A good day to stay inside and sew! Thank you for stopping by and please consider signing up at Rachael's Imagine Gnats forThe Covert Robin. The link will take you right to her door to find out more. Enjoy your day! Lisa
