A NEW BIRD ON THE BLOCK



Not a very clear picture, but at least you can get an idea of the bird I came up with to go in the center of the Medallion Doll Quilt for my class next week. (Remember the bird I originally used was not my own). The shop is doing up kits for the class, so that makes it easy for people. It seems like everyone loves kits lately. I love it when they make them for my designs because then I sell patterns! February is always a good month because of the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. The local quilt shops get lots of people coming through on their way to the show.
I have a new little project for my Patchalittle class in February. It is still under construction, but by next week I have to have it finished to show the class. My friend, Joan, saw it yesterday and got all excited, so that is a good sign! The past couple of weeks seem to have moved in slow motion, as I was not feeling well. But I think I am about back to normal, which is to say I am more sluggish, but not is slow motion. No, really, I feel lots better! I actually went grocery shopping and cooked a meal!
Did I mention that I got a perm last week? I haven't had one in years, but my hair is so straight and so flat that I thought I would give it a try again. I looked pretty funny for the first week, but I think it is finally calming down. It actually looks ok now. By the end of the month it will probably be flat again. I can't win, I know that, but every once in a while I try. Have a good weekend everyone!

What a sweetie little bird. I really like that the stems are showing on top of the leaves. And you get to work with a 'gourmet' quilt shop. Now that's fun.

He's a lovely bird with some very smart oak leaves - birds are a really hard thing to design a satisfactory shape on aren't they?

The bird looks great. I'll be at the Mid Atlantic Quilt show for just one day. My mom and I always go and this year my sister, aunt, and cousin will come too. Mom was already telling me that she has a huge list of things for me to do for her the weekend I'm there.

I haven't had a perm in years but have been tempted because my hair is fine and straight too. Right now it's longer than it's been in years and I was ready to cut it but my husband says he likes it this long and it's easy to pull back in a ponytail.
