Christmas sewing

I have been making these little birdie's from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. Three of them are gifts for an ornament exchange breakfast tomorrow morning. I think I may make some more, they are addictive : )

I also whipped up a goody for my bff Jessica for her birthday. I made her this set last year and still had some of the material, so figured she could use some pot holders to match.

The birds are GREAT! My mom saw one around here at my house and wants me to make a whole set of them for next Christmas. Seeing yours all together like that I totally see why. Fantastic. :)

I LOVE those birds. They are great. I might try to make some, I definitely need some more non-breakable ornaments for our tree.

I love those birdie ornaments! I have the book and am going to have to make some soon before Christmas.

I love that blue and green floral print. I had a fat quarter and have been trying to find some more and have had no luck. Those are so cute. Where is your new quilt hanging out in the house by the way?

Love those birdies, Tonya. I also totally get the blogging during the holidays thing. I haven't found more than a moment to blog or visit my favorites. Tonight I had to decide between posting or visiting. I decided to visit.

Happy New Year!

PS The potholders are lovely, too!
