Side Tracted with Love

Hi there everyone! I have been so busy in a good way. Lots of celebrations and visitors. So tea cozy has been on hold but hope to be back on tract soon. Thank you all for your lovely encouraging comments with my new project. I can't way to see it either.

So first of all it was my Honey's birthday. I had planned just a little surprise with two daughters who could come in the middle of the week and surprise him at dinner. He was delighted! Won't tell which birthday, but it was notable! We decorated, had a lovely dinner and desserts and candles, and gifts and cards!!

Fresh flowers and gifts, my favorite too!

Oops, think I gave it away, don't tell honey!

Love these girls......our two youngest!

Next celebration was our Anniversary! No pictures but we had a lovely time and had a fabulous dinner and weekend together! What could be better : )

SO instead of knitting the daughter in the gray and I decide to make some birdie crafts. We had so much fun and honestly I think they came out beautifully. Here's a step by step:

First the cutout pattern

Felt and fabric cutouts

All together now

Here's the lovely book for inspiration compiled by Susanne Woods. It has many many (26)projects to sew, stitch, quilt and love.

So I'm sure you are more then ready to see our creations.

Aren't they so cute......here are a few more and then some more

Just finished this one......I think I will have to name them. What do you think? Name suggestions welcome! I think I will be making more, they are addictively sweet! I think I just made up a word?!?

Well, my friends, I did start the cozy and here is the beginning. I just love the yarn, it is so variegated in gorgeous shades of green and pink.

Thank you so much for your visit and leaving your lovely comments. I read them all over and over and visit you too. Can't get enough of all of you, so thank you. Have a wonderful day and week in all you do and Smile Big : )    ; )
