Now to all things stitching.
After finishing my little "Frosty" fellow I placed him with his friends while I think of how to assemble them. Stitching him did make me feel all 'Christmasy' in the sewing sense and I felt like I wanted to make a Christmas tote bag so I pulled out my fabrics and chose 2 I liked and then looked through some recent drawings and chose a sweet little birdie. I have taken complete artistic license with this little bird. He is supposed to be a little Robin but we all know they are not all red...more orangey even. So I hope you will forgive me for that....what do you think?
I am now going to wax lyrical so just warning you..
Everyone is so busy these days and also dollars have to go a bit further than they used to, so I am always very grateful, delighted and humbled when you lovely stitchers out there take the time to like my designs enough to then stitch them. When you design it is also like exposing a big part of yourself out there for people to critic. So you can just imagine how I have felt this past weekend when my lovely blogging friends who meet regularly at Millrose Patchwork in Ballan, Victoria for a stitching fun day chose my designs for their swap theme....ooh eee! Very excited!

Lunch awaits and a little bit of quiet time in my favourite chair with my needle and thread.
