Side project

This is a side project to the other one that I have been posting about.  It is just a small part of the whole.  I still have some more work to do on it but what do you think so far?

I finished the tree!

So I finally managed to wrangle this silly tree into submission.  It has eluded me since day one.  The putting together of the tree was simple, but I just couldn't figure out how to stitch it down.  Well, inspiration came when I went to a art show in Chicago with my oldest sister and then it was just finding time to work on it.  Now all that is left to do is to put a back on it so that it can be hung on the wall.  What do you think? I just love the little bird!!  :-D

More new fabric!!

Well.  I have become such a sucker for fabric.  I have always loved fabric with its different prints and textures, but I have only recently (in the last two years) started being able to buy it to really make things like I have always dreamed.  I already have a stash of fabric that I've been slowly accruing, but they have been fairly basic fabrics.  Not really anything very pretty.  But recently I told you about winning some very lovely wordy fabric.  Yesterday I happened to stop at my local quilt shop and found some more wordy fabric.  I had to have it since it was all they had left.  It is newspaper print!!  I love it!!  I also found some others that I just couldn't resist.  See what you think of them!  Click on pictures for a larger view.
