Little birdy framed

I had been meaning to stitch up something small and cute for my good friend Meredith for months. Her birthday was in May and I bought this frame on clearance back around February or March thinking it would be a perfect canvas for a little embroidery. I never got around to stitching anything in time to mail it to her and felt like a bad friend. Finally her visit up to Portland kicked my butt in gear and I made this with her in mind.

I love it and secretly wanted to keep it for myself! It turned out so cute. (a little bit more detailed close up shot is here.)

blue and white bunting

I got the idea in my head that I should make a ton of bunting to hang all over the backyard for a 4th of July party. I should have started earlier, but as it turned out I (with some help from Vanessa) was able to string together over 10 feet of bunting to string up! I would have liked to have about twice that much but it looked pretty cute if you ask me.
