"Butterfly's Bluebirds and Friday Night Sew In."

Hello,

I hope your weekend is going well. During the week I finished the little Bluebird Cross Stitch into a wall hanging.

 This was stitched on 25 count Dublin Linen using DMC threads Numbers 312 3829 and 3838. Once again this was a freebie provided by http://lacontesselepointdecroix.blogspot.com.au/. The Bluebird flew from Kainga this week in this lovely card made by Bobbie Lynn. Bobbie Lynn had sent me this card with a letter inside and made it so it was re-usable. Thanks so much for your letter Bobbie Lynn, your kindness is much appreciated.


Last night was Friday Night Sew In, during the afternoon I completed the simple quilting on my "Country Store" wall hanging and sewed on the binding during the evening. I then had time to get some more hexies organised for my Hexagon project. If you joined in Friday Night Sew In I hope you got lots done.Special thanks to Wendy for hosting the evening.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

I have my grandmother's little bluebird brooches, remember those? There's two of them one slightly larger than the other attached by a tiny chain. Your bluebird reminds me of her, and that's always a good thing. Hope your weekend is going well. Hi to Lucy!!

Your cross stitches are always soooo dainty & beautiful Bev. That card is rather stunning too. Have a great week. Just getting round to catching up on some blog reading.

Love your little quilt! I can tell the pieces are tiny to work with! And the x-stitch is delightful. You not only do good work, but FAST too! I started a knitting project (only a dish cloth) while on my recent trip. It felt good to do a craft again.
