Tweet Street

Welcome to Tweet Street!



Looks like that little bird is coming to check out some of the vacant birdhouses here on Tweet Street.


We don't get snow all that often here in NC so I had to run out and get some photos!  This table runner is now sitting on my hall table bringing a taste of Spring into the house.

I have a collection of  birdhouses so choosing this birdhouse fabric from Elizabeth's Studio was an easy decision.



I fussy cut around each house and had fun adding the detail.


I also made a small zipped pouch.  (My daughter claimed this one!)


Since I couldn't get a live bird to photo bomb my quilty photos, I had to make my own little guy.  Isn't he cute?


Bird pincushion pattern is from Sharon Holland Designs.


Now sip your tea and join me in visiting all the other lovely ladies as part of today's hop -

Many thanks to Lana from It Seems to be Sew for being such a terrific cheerleader and Samm for her continued support for all of us.

Happy Stitching!
