Back to Blogging

Beaded Birds
Nest with embroidered bird
Bird back
Friendship bracelet
Hi guys :) It's so wonderful to be back here at the ol'blog sharing with you.
The past month has been extremely productive.
I have never worked so much in my life! But if you know me you know I I take advantage for any opportunity to do a little something that's not work related.
I decorated some iron-on birdies on linen with glass beads and embroidery thread. Turned one of them into a little stuffed cushion and it now lives in a beautiful nest I found in the neighborhood that had been blown down in the recent storms.
I'll show you what I did with the other one in my next post.
And the past month I also learned how to make
a friendship bracelet on the internet!

Happy Canada Day to all my lovely Canadian friends!!!

How pretty. I'm wondering what kind of iron on you use. I've been looking into it a bit and the TAP by Lesly Riley was recommended to me.

The textures on your birds are delicious, Geninne. Candy for the eyes. I may have to jump on the friendship bracelet bandwagon, too, I spent many a recess making them in grade school.

Love the embroidery on those birds! Think I'll have to pull out your free embroidery pattern and give it a go.

What a beautiful idea! I have a robin's nest that I removed from our front porch once the birds had flown. I might make a little birdy for it. I am also very much looking forward to your workshop in Toronto in a the near future!
