Happy Mail :)

Thanks to Google Reader I was able to see a blog post on my stitchy friend's blog that then vanished into thin air. She sewed together the most wonderful quail pin cushion so since I couldn't comment on her original post I commented on another post. A few days later, on her blog, she wrote that she was going to give a quail away to her stitchy friend for noticing the missing post. I got excited but then thought, "Well what if someone else told her first *gasp*" Today, after my nap I went downstairs and found a box on the coffee table and this was inside of it!Some close ups!


Lisa thanks so much for this! You really don't know how much I love it...it's the one of the prettiest things I've seen and you are truly creative!

Since we're on the topic of birds...these pretty little things also came in the mail earlier this week.
Cute no? The pictures aren't the greatest, I just sort of snapped them quickly but I love them! They were made by Barbara and can be bought at her Etsy Shop. She still has one there just in case you'd like to own one.

Last picture for the night is of my stitchy corner. I'd like to add more to my basket and I'd like to get a taller tree so my birds can be seen better.

Cute quail. Your stitchy corner is looking great. I wondered who the buyer was of Barabara's wonderful birds!

Barbara said...

Oh my goodness! You have your own little flock!! :D I love-love-love your quail - her little face is so expressive! - and your birds look ever so much more at home on your little tree than the did at my house while they were waiting to find out where their home was. :) Thanks SO much for becoming their birdie mama!!

Mercy,
Have you not gotten your Qaker Critter? I mailed it to you on June 27th, from Georgia, I've been waiting to see whether or not you've gotten it. I'm starting to worry :(
