Friday's child

Heatwave coming on. Long weekend begins.

While ploughing through stuff, because my sorting out/cleaning is an ongoing thing these days, I found the little cotton bag I'd forgotten about. It is decorated with gifts from two friends, a cute birdie image and luscious trim.




While ironing transfers onto organza, this happened. Of course, I realized that I should have put something under the organza, but I like having this permanently on my ironing board!


 Next was this half-bird -- I gave it a body with my sewing machine!!

  3. So very creative. Reminds me of the saying, "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade". But instead, you had half of a bird. Have a great weekend :)

  4. Beautiful birdies, Colette. I just love the birds permanently affixed to your ironing board. That would almost make me want to iron...but not quite ;-)
    Love to you.
