Tweet Tweet Baby!! Tweet Tweet!!

(Pre-recording by a tired & panicky  author  on Monday Night as the posting time draws closer & closer so please excuse any spelling errors)

As I think about how I’m going to start out this posting, I find myself staring out the windows watching the little birds flit about.  This a.m. I have seen a pair of male Orioles vying for the attention of a female who is sitting in a tree on the opposite bank of the river.  I see a plethora of  Robins hopping about for the worms in the grass.  The Chickadees, Cardinals and Sparrows  gather  about the neighbors birdfeeder chattering at each other as they clamor for space.  The Blue Heron was here earlier fishing in pocket of deeper waters in the river behind the house for his breakfast.  As I was mixing a batch of honey wheat bread dough, I hear the Blue Jays squawking at each other in the apple tree that hangs over the neighbors fence.  Yes … it has been quite active this morning in our little vista.

Not much before the announcement of this blog hop,  I had been on a bird kick as spring fever had kicked in.  So I have been make birds for several different reasons and some are WIP’s.  So I made lots of bird themed items.  Some for the 1st time and a few that I had made before and had given away. I also took some pictures of bird themed items around the house to show you.   Some are inside while others are outside.   So let me take you on a tour of my flocks of many birds.

First off are the birds that I had to revisit and make again.  The 1st Pink Flamingo was made last year about this time of year for  a swap and I like it so much that I made it again.  I hand quilted it with the echo stitching.

 

Then when I made this one after a Wisconsin friend sent me the pink floral print and the bird print, I decide to make it in an Ohio Star pattern with my own feather/bird designs hand stitched around the star.  I had shown this one off and was shocked when someone wanted to buy it.  I sold it, started to make another  but it was put aside.  So when this hop came about, I pulled it back out and finished it.  I really wish I knew what that bird print was called… I so want more of it. LOL.  I  have seen it in blue also during then hop …. oh so pretty!!!  With it is one of the “Bird in the Air”  that I made for the FWS blocks that I’m working on.  I used Marcia Hohn’s  pattern @ quilterscache to be found here.  Again this one too was hand quilted even though it’s hard to tell from this picture.

Here yet is another  block I did for my Homesteadingtoday.com quilt block lottery.  We had gotten this wonderful purple fabric as the focus fabric and it immediately spoke bird to me with it’s feathery print.  So for my block, I did a “Birds in the Air” using the quiltercache.com pattern; I worked with a quarter of the blocks and appliquéd 3 little bird silhouettes from a pattern that I found …. oh…. crud I misplaced the piece of paper with the info. on it … and added a single  feather  on the large triangle of the block.  These pieces are hand stitched using a tiny blanket stitch.  The background is actually 2 different WoW prints with swirls on them.  I called the block “Birds of a Feather”.  The little birds remind me of the purple martins & swallows that are around the house area.

Misc. feb.2013 058    Ht Bird Block 2

 I still have “Sunflowers & Crows” in the floor hoop and this is also being hand quilted but this one is being done in a cross-hatch pattern.  A first for me but I’m up to averaging 11 or 12 tiny stitches on top within an inch.  But I am enjoying  the slower  pace as I work on it when I feel like it.  There is no rush or need for this one.  I like working  it on when I’m on the phone.  This is my great experiment as I mixed fabrics, stitch length, techniques.

This one is a little closer view of it above.

 

Another one going project that involves Hummingbirds is my Jack Dempsey Needle Art project using Pattern #293 Interlocking Hummingbirds.  The original pattern called for the use of pinks in the morning glories.  And me being me – well let’s just say the pinks had to go!!  So with thought and pondering  with some drooling over some “wishful thinking ” batiks of greens & purples; I changed up the color scheme.  I’m much happy with the changes since I have enough of these to make at least one very large King size quilt without the sashing & borders.  It’s my trade out project when I need to take a break from something. 

DSCN2552        DSCN2554

Now for the bird items about the house.  With spring here, I put out a new yard flag that I received as part of a secret pal  package from a Quilting Board. com Swap buddy.  It was a prefect thing to show off with the theme for this blog hop.  It has a pair of jaunty little Black Capped Chickadees.  We have these little fellers around the house all year around.  I  think it looks inviting as it sits down by the riverside.  It even has some beautiful  pink flowers on it. 

DSCN2555

I have been watching the map for when the Hummingbirds should start migrating back into our area here in Mid-Michigan.  I pulled the feeder out and gave it a good scrubbing, before filling it and hanging out it as a ”birdie welcome mat". Last week I actually saw one of the Orioles visiting it.  And since today I was taken pictures with it, I did a refresh to give it that pretty bright red color  everyone seems to enjoy.  In this picture, The fabric “scrap” was given to me by a neighbor and fellow Wednesday morning quilter just this past week.  I love all the little birds on it. The selvage reads: CP21851 Packed Birds Bird Sanctuary copyright Wild Wings. 

DSCN2545

Anyone that really knows me, knows there are many things I LOVE to collect.  Tea items, Thimbles and Hummingbirds.  When there are combined in any combination – even better. {Wink Wink} So here I can show you a couple of them as they relate to birds.  This is one of my tea sets and it has the nicest hummingbird print on them.  In the second picture is a better picture of the tiniest Hummingbird on a thimble.

DSCN2560           DSCN2562

From there we have a collection of note cards with a variety of different birds on them.  Here’s a little hint – one of these chirpy little note cards will be included in my give away so stick around for more on that later.

DSCN2544 

While I was out taking pictures of all my little birdie offerings, I noticed this nest up in the neighbors apple tree.  I don’t know if there is a family in it yet but I’ll try to listen for one in the days to come.

DSCN2550

 So I bet you would really like to know what new items besides the revisits I have been working on like a mad woman since the blog was announced and I was accepted as one of the 108 blogs in this hop?   Okay but I got to warn  ya I’ve been very busy even as I was couch ridden for a messed up back issues.  The first item I did was to make a pillow for my son.  I used one of three pillow covers that was sent to me in a box of scraps from a Quilt and Needle.com.  He likes these couch pillows better than the regular bed pillows.  So I am working on designing him a “Name That Song Title – Beatles Style”  quilt for Christmas if I’m lucky to get it done by then since he is a HUGE Beatles fan.  At 10, he can almost name that tune in 5 notes.  So yeah….. prefect gift.  Well there is a song that was written by Paul McCartney that goes by the name “Blackbird”.  So “Blackbird”  was created by using Lisa Debee Schiller’s “Delightfully Frightful” Raven Pillow that was found on page 90 in the BH&G American Patchwork & Quilting Oct. 2012 issue.  I made birds using Laura Wagner’s fabric for Marcus Brothers textiles.  I thought it had this feather –ish  look about it and I placed mine on a smaller square of 12” finished.

DSCN2237

The next one I made I actually made two of them.  Both of these fine feathered babe’s are spoken for as gifts that was part of my Blogiversary give-away.  These little chicks are made from Susan Geddess’s pattern that had appeared in the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks collector's edition Vol. 5 of Summer 2012 as block #432 on page 39.  I had used Pellon #805 fusible for the appliqué that I hand appliquéd with a tiny blanket stitch.  They was such bright little fellers.

DSCN2241      DSCN2551

But one of my favorite pieces I did for this hop was my “Blue Birds of Happiness” .  These little darlings remind me of the time I spent out in Pennsylvania and I use to spend lots of time out at one of the wild bird preservation parks.  There were many types of birds to see during our walks on the paths to the wetlands and around the fields.  There were bird houses on every couple fencepost and each spring the blue birds would use them.  They were so colorful I had to do something  with them,  So “Tweet Tweet Baby! Tweet Tweet” came about.  Now I know that they don’t have little head feathers but I took artist creativity with them.   Each of the four was hand drawn and hand embroidered.  Form there I went to little free thinking as I picked out the orange and blue fabric to surround them.  I didn’t have a satin stitch on my machine, but found a tiny blanket- stitch to use instead as I’m trying to finish these little darlings up in time to included them in the posting.  I didn’t measure for exactness but chose to eye ball it.  I mean how CUTE are they?  Right?

 DSCN2547   DSCN2563   DSCN2564

I have to say I had a LOT of fun making all of my projects for this blog hop as my theory was I couldn’t have enough birds to show off.  Although it could come down to something as simple as not being able to make up my mind.   But I have to Thank Madam Samm for all the time she puts into running one of these hop for us to enjoy.  And for Ms. Mary for being our Head Cheerleader this go-a-round.  And to our sponsor Cloth Works.  Be sure to visit the rest of the wonderful bloggers today to see what is happening.

  12. Tricia. Loved all of your bird creations, but especially the embroidered banner toward the end. For Mother's Day my oldest daughter Audrey and husband Dani cooked a marvelous brunch at their house and I enjoyed eating what I didn't have to cook and being able to leave without having to do the dishes! And I walked out the door with a bouquet of flowers. It doesn't get better than that!

  13. My Mother's Day was very quiet. I worked on my "it's for the birds project" most of the day. I love your little blue birds...

  17. Well it was also my 34th anniversary on Sunday. My husband and I went to dinner and a movie Saturday night. It was a quiet day for mother's day. My son and kids were down for church and then my other son and family were in with a gift card to Singers which I hope to put with that new sewing machine I am looking at when it comes on sale on June 4th. Really cute bird projects and thanks for having a give away.

  22. All your projects look great tho I may have a preference for the raven pillow :) I had a good Mother's Day with the in-laws tho we did a lot of mourning for her youngest son who passed on Christmas...these first sets of holidays after are tough.

  24. lots and lots of birds. I think I like that flamingo best of all but how cute are those baby birds! A toss up. Good for you with all the hand quilting and stitcheries. Machine is quicker but hand is so satisfying I think.

  25. Following now. Mother's Day? Quiet day as I am not a mom. I married late after dating my husband for 21 years so his son has always called me by my first name. While I am technically his step mom, I don't think of myself that way. I am a Kitty Mama though!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you so much for sharing all of those birdie projects. I can see why you needed to make the flamingo again. Just beautiful. If I was giving that away, I would need to make one for myself too. I was lucky enough to spend the day with all 4 of my children. So I had a wonderful Mother's Day. We were hoping the new grandbaby would arrive then too but we are still waiting. SOmething to look forward to.

  33. WOW! What a flock of birds you have. I can't pick a favorite. My mother's Day was a busy one.I helped youngest daughter take and set up a wedding cake. We drove the 3 layer cake 45 miles, in the rain, and finally got it stacked and decorated with time to spare. Wonderful husband stayed home to keep an eye on other daughters 11 year old for me.

  34. Your projects are just wonderful. It would be hard to choose a favorite, but the flamingo is lovely. We had a big BBQ for all the terrific moms in our family on Sunday.

  35. Good heavens, you've been busy and they are lovely projects! As for Mother's Day, I managed to sprain my foot on the 4th of May (long story involving a wedding, a curb and an ironic coincidence) and I'm still on crutches so my day was some lovely movie time with my girls while I quilted my bird project and an incredible BBQ'd rib dinner courtesy of my husband. All in all, it was a wonderful day! pbstrand@msn.com

  36. what beautiful projects!!!! definetly inspiring me!!!
    My Mother's day was awesome!!! I got to talk to my daughter on the phone and she sent me a beautiful card and a GC for Hobby Lobby:) Then I sewed for a few hours until my son and his family came over. My gdaughter is 2 and just amazing!!! So a beautiful day!!!!

  47. Seems a bit ironic...On Mother's Day I was recovering from a hysterectomy!! But I AM a mom already, and I knew there would be no more children coming....So, it was a quiet day at home, doing a bit of sewing while the family played a board game. It was a lovely day!

  55. Love your whole flock! I hope your hummingbirds are there soon! I live in southern CA and am lucky to have them year round ( and I never color their nectar red, I've heard it can be bad for them). The raven pillow is very striking. Lucky son! (And now I've got that song stuck in my head.) I had the best Mother's Day. Saturday I had breakfast out with my daughters, granddaughters and grandson. On Sunday my husband took me to brunch at my older daughter's restaurant (poor thing, she had to work) and then to Fort Rosecrans where my mother is at rest. We had a relaxing afternoon. I even received flowers and chocolates! I love spending time with my family! I hope your day was just as wonderful!

  57. Sew many cute little bird projects! I love them. On Mother's Day, I had a quiet day at home with my DH--just what I needed as I have a bad sinus infection and was feeling pretty tough. I did get to spend time with my sister and 3 nieces on Sat., going out to eat and back to sis's for chocolate pie for dessert.

    I'm getting ready to put out my hummer feeder. The orioles are already visiting the oriole feeder, and the tohee and grosbeak have been regular visitors at the feeders.

  68. Oh wow...what a fantastic adventure, reading thru your blog. I love the flamingo with the echo quilting. Now those cute little bluebirds just make you smile and forget you had a hailstorm on Mother's Day.....Now that was up her in southern Ontario, Canada....lol.

    Other than that I had a very nice day, my cousin took me out for brunch and my beautiful daughter and her boyfriend had me up for a homemade lasange supper.Complete with ceasar salad and homebaked pineapple up-side-down carrot cake.

  79. Well first let me say I enjoyed reading your blog. This mothers day was the best in my life, you see I have three sons and only one cares enough about me to stay in touch. He gave me a place to come to when my husband walked out on me in Dec. Well this mothers day he picked me up, (just HIM) and took me to Foxwoods Casino in Conn. I at the age of 61 had never been inside a casino before, we spent the whole day having a blast. We played some slots, and played a bit of poker, we didn't win any thing to speak of but I was the biggest winner there. My son made me feel so proud that day, we ate a subway and got coffee at dunkens for the ride home. Like I said it was the best Mothers day I have ever had my son Stephen is my heart. Thanks son for a wonderful day, spent just the two of us.
