Birdies and bingo!


I was in 2 bird swaps this summer and had fun creating some different things for them...

Here is what I sent Amy in Lori's swap:

The birdie decoration tutorial is here...



Here is what Amy made me! I wear that owl necklace constantly! The little handmade boxes held packs of m&ms, my fav!



And here is what I made for Missy in Noodlebubble's swap:



Here is what Missy made me!



I also joined Lori's bingo challenge...I donated an apron to be a door prize and ended up winning a few goodies myself!



The earrings are from Sherri, the "Buster Brown" pin cushion is from Fran, the apron and head kerchief are from Amy, the rose pin is from Molly and the bracelet is from Lori herself! WOW! I like winning stuff!
Thank you ladies, everything is just lovely!

Loads of fun swapping going on lately.

Everything looks wonderful. I love the rainbow birdie you made. The only thing that throws me off a bit is the Buster Brown pincushion. Just that one lonely shoe creeps me out. Kind of reminds me of something in a horror show ....weird huh?
