Do I talk myself into some things all the time--
like one of our bom's--
the 'color' one--
does anyone know where I came up with the idea of birds????
and not just any birds--
birds that don't even have a pattern--
so each month I start over again--
Here is 'Yellow Bird" he is looking for little sea crabs!!!
This months bird is skinny--
so hope he finds lots of crabs and bugs!!!!
and here is the photo that I used to design him--

Here is the strip block for this month's yellow--
nice bright Sunshine yellows--
so now my cat block and bird blocks are done for June--
we are ready for the next color!!!???

And I got the next Christmas sal block done today--
Frannie and I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday-
as I needed a skein of blue baby yarn--( and it was on sale--so more than one came home with me!!)
I always have to wander the fabric section--
and look at what I found-
this neat pinecone fabric--
and the reds I got there too--
along with the fabric that looks like sand that I used in the bird block!!!
so it was a nice trip!!!

I am happy to say that it has been a good month--
I have kept up with all the monthly projects and even got some sewing done on the quilt for my bed--
the only project not finished is June's wool block and that is not due till the 2nd Friday of the month-in this case that is the month of July-so I am not late on that yet---



  1. Well done!!! I really like the pine fabric--that is a cool idea and your birdie is so cute!

  2. Personally, I think you're a little crazy for paper piecing a new bird each month. But I've met you, so I know that you really are a little crazy!! Good job on being all caught up for the month!

  3. When I saw that there was a bird of the month QAL I was a little happy until I saw that it was paper pieced. I'm not really a fan of paper piecing and I really, really, really, don't need to start yet another block of the month. Especially since I am so far behind on the few I have started.

  4. Wow Di! You cut that fabric just right. It looks like the birds eye and he is looking down. It is just perfect.
    (I am like Robin. I don't like paper piecing either.

  5. The way you cut the fabric for the yellow bird, it makes an eye. Cute!
    Happy 4th of July weekend plus Monday and Tuesday.

  6. You are very clever making your own PP block each month.
    Good on you for keeping up with all your BOM...


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
