Block 8 whirligig

This is block eight of the sticks and stones color way of our Saturday surprise Sampler program. It is called Whirligig:

I mentioned yesterday that I was doing some backstitching on the cotton linen blend that is new at the stoRe.  I  Did make some hexagon frames for the two birds that I stitched.  now I need to decide which background to use, the gray or the blue. Right now I am prewashing them to see what they look like washed.   I backstitch around the edges so they won't fray in the wash.
I was sorry that I had to cover up a little bit of the owls tail. I suppose I should have made the frame first and then made the stitching to fit within it.  Oh well, I'll know for next time.

  1. Dear Michelle, it's been so fun to get caught up on all of your creative projects. You are so prolific. I have to say I just LOVE your lavender sachets and those little birds you stitched. Gorgeous!! I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year! xoxo
