OK ... so ... I've been extremely under the weather with
asthmatic bronchitis ... cough, cough, cough!
Going on 3 weeks...UGH!
Making productive use of this down time
I have been able to
replace the binding, piping and
bead my "Birdie Stitches" Quilt
all from the comforts of my sofa!!!
Sadly, the photo just doesn't show it off very well.
Started in January of 2011
February - Valentines Day
March - cold & snowy
April - Easter
May - Flowers
June - Rainbows
July - Fireworks
August - Hot Summer Sun Flowers
September - Fall Leaves
Just love the way the leaves came out!
October - Pumpkins
November - Thanksgiving
December - Christmas
Originally there was a purple piping,
but it just didn't come out even.
Found this great blue iridescent cording
that blends in perfectly!
I stitched it on by hand so it looks like piping!
Let's not forget the label!
Just had to add a few embroiderd bluebirds!
If your loving the "Birdie Stitches" pattern you can find it here.
SO that's what days and weeks coughing on the sofa will get ya!
Now I really need to vacuum ...
coughing and beading are just NOT a good combination!
Stray beads everywhere!!
