So pleased you have stopped by today especially if you are taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt blog hop hosted by Jo at SerendipitousStitching. Have fun by starting at Jo´s blog where the participants are listed, visit in order the blogs mentioned and collect letters which will spell out a mystery phrase.
We are asked to share some Spring or Easter themed stitching and I have been working on these little decorative birdies .
I wanted to make a mixture of blue and yellow birds but surprisingly I couldn´t find any yellow fabric, not in stash or scrap bags, so apart from a few splashes of yellow gingham, the birds are all blue ones.
I added some bling to the wings, mainly beads, lace or tulle and plan to make some brighter more exotic birds during the year, maybe some Cardinals for Christmas.
A long time has passed since I did any ribbon embroidery so when I saw a pretty pattern offered by Carol Daisy, I thought I would try my hand at making this small bag. The pattern can be found here.
And here is the letter you have come to find.
Your next stop is with Beth at Beth´s Needlework Stash
Happy Easter to everyone.
I found the pattern for the birds, although I altered the pattern a bit, here.
