I have been looking for some more pretty and different pieces of old quilt bits and this lovely bundle was just what I had been looking for. Some lovely little pieces in the bundle and different to what I have.
she has the measurements up and photos but seeing them in the flesh as it were it was even better then I had imagined so I decided to take a photo of the pieces for you to look at as well.
Happiness is getting a parcel through the post like this with stunning vintage fabrics and a letter from a lovely friend .....
This morning I was gazing out of my Stitchery room window and waiting for my lap top to fire up and do its checks whilst sipping my coffee and who should be out on the lawn but my absolute favourite Miss Muddy Beak and so I sprang, yes sprang into action and went down in to the garden and she let me take a photo of her. It may have been a thank you for her new decoration of nest ( the paisley scraps that I had popped into our pear tree) Normally she is very camera shy but today she posed long enough for me to take a photo of my gorgeous girl.
She was hopping around with her head down listening for worms and so when I went out she stopped and I was talking to her as I do, then I said would you mind if I take a photo of you today and lifted up my I phone and there we have it she stayed still and let me..... she had a muddy beak too because the ground was still wet from the huge thunder and lightening storm we had the other night with rain that went on for at least 6 hours and it was like stair rods from the sky. So as she was looking for juicy worms her beak was all muddy, this is how she got her name from me originally It has been so gorgeous of late with very high temperatures that she has not been able to dig about in the lawn for months and it seems to be her favourite thing to do even when there is bird food provided for her.
I am having a few days off next week just to pre warn you all as I have a friend coming down to stay and I am picking him up this week from Devon well at the end of the week. More about that at the end of this week when I know exactly what is happening.
For today I am going to get into my sewing frame of mind and get some serious things finished I hope so have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
