Today was a productive day for me. I made two pairs of pajama bottoms as Christmas gifts and finished my Birdie Stitches BOM quilt. This quilt has twelve hand embroidered birdie scenes and four machine embroidered blocks with special messages in them. This quilt will be a gift for my sister for Christmas this year. She graduated from high school in June and is in her third phase of cosmetology school. Each school name is on a block. As is her nick name from me "Chicken" and a special message from me to her! I mailed four of the blocks to Connecticut where my Aunt Sue did the machine work for me. This is a gift of love and has already traveled many miles! I sure hope she enjoys it, I know the Mr. enjoyed breaking it in for her! Pictures below are of the finished quilt and each block. Plus a couple fun ones of the Mr. cuddling with it!
