Bye, Bye Birdies...

 They're finished and on their way to new homes!
This is the tote that Cheryl will be receiving from the Sweetheart Valentine
Giveaway I held last month. I used the Moda Martinique fabric line, sweet
baby birds from Michelle Palmer and I even added ribbon from Moda to the strap.
It's fully quilted, and I designed it myself. I'm very happy with the result, 
and I hope that Cheryl is equally happy to have and use it.
 I made two table runners. One was for Amy (the one on the left),
and the other is for Joyce. The table runners measure approximately
14" wide and 51" long. I hope they have tables or buffets long enough 
to accommodate them. Of course, they could lie across the end of a
bed if one chose, too. The binding on these table runners was applied
by machine and then finished in the traditional method - hand sewn.
 So, I can cross another UFO project off my list! I hope that Amy,
Joyce and Cheryl love their giveaway gifts. I'm really happy with
the way they turned out, and I'm looking forward to their reactions.

I have a commission to finish next, and I won't be able to debut them
for you. That will be the privilege of the recipient. That means that, 
even though I'll be a busy needleworker today, I won't be able to share
pictures tomorrow. I have another subject in mind, though, so I hope 
you'll come back again. I'm also going to start thinking about my next
giveaway. My Fourth Blog Anniversary is just around the corner!
(Actually it's a week from Friday! I can hardly believe it myself.)

Have a great day! I'm off to the studio...

Good Morning Donna, I would love to be in their shoes and receive either one. I know that Michelle's little birdies are so adorable. I love her art work. I will be looking forward to seeing what you are up to next. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers Your Missouri Friend.
