The Birdie's are Flying!

Wow! I'm quite impressed with myself! (That doesn't happen too often... lol!) The birdie's are flying around here. The last time we talked I had 4 done with 6 to go to get caught up with the Birdie Stitches Block of the Month Quilt. Guess how many I finished in the last couple of days? ................................................. 4! I finished 4 more! I can't believe it! I thought maybe 2... perhaps 3... but I never thought I'd finish 4! Now I only have 2 more to get all caught up. Yipeeeeeee! Here are the ones I just finished.

Block #5 ~ May ...



Block #7 ~ July ...



Block #8 ~ August ...



Block #10 ~ October ...


I still have June and September to do. I'm actually going to use part of the June design as a signature block for the back so I actually have 3 more to do to be caught up. I've been trying to decide what design to use for the June block. That may slow me down a bit :(. I will basically use the September design as is but will add a little more. (At least that's what I'm thinking right now... but I'm a woman and I've been known to change my mind ;)!)

I'm just so excited about these little birdie's that I can't stop! I may have withdrawals when I'm all caught up. I've really been enjoying it! I know I keep saying it but I really am! I do have another stitchery project waiting to begin so I will still get my stitching fix. I really need to get back to some other projects I put on the back burner too... Cutting & Mailing my Christmas Fabric Charm Swap  ... 2 Halloween Quilt Block Swaps ... 2 Thanksgiving Quilt Block Swaps ... at least the due dates are over week away... whew! Then I have the Halloween & Thanksgiving aprons that I'm making for myself. They're all cut and ready to sew. Of course I have other projects that are in the works too. Boy this quilting/sewing bug has really bit me big time! I haven't even mentioned the fact that I'm in a Christmas boutique November 17 - 19. Guess I better get started on making things for that too. And then there are Christmas gifts to make! Yes I've overextended myself! (Just a little!!!!!) I always do that. Not quite sure why. It's just my way I guess. There's nothing like stress to motivate you.

Guess I'd better get going and tackle some of these projects. I hope you are doing well and making lots of awesome stuff! Please share your creations with me. I really enjoy seeing them!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Until Next Time...
Cherise  :)

WOW Cherise I am catching up on your blog and you have been a busy girlie. Your stitching is just beautiful. Love love your blocks. What a lucky girl you are to find so many vintage sheets. I have been on the hunt for some but I am having NO luck. But it will not stop me from looking.
