a bit of art...

i'm in a swap and the challenge was to create a mystical room based on a children's book, poetry etc...so here is what i came up with..it is a reading room!



I drafted a pattern for the little birdie and stitched him from onasburg fabric then covered him in tiny pieces of book pages.



The back of the "room" is a book cover from the late 1800's....the pages were falling out and this book was the perfect size...



We had two birthdays this last week...

Xander turned 8!


...and Logan turned ONE!!!


The weather is getting warmer...has been in the 80's for the last couple days...with a forcast of 60's for the weekend...and we can tell it's getting warmer...as the buggies are coming out of hiding...this little lady was on our back hall window...


Goodness...two posts in one day....wow...that's alot for me! Danielle's surgery went quite well yesterday...thanks for all that have emailed to ask...

Have a wonderful evening! and....

HUGZ TIL NEXT TIME!
