Friday was hair day. We all love hair day, don't we? A nice little trim and a new color will make anyone happy. As looking this nice takes quite a long time sitting in a chair, I thought I would bring my Birdie Stitches blocks to embroider. I ran to the fabric store (a generic blah chain) to pick out my floss, but could only find a pink, orange, yellow and brown to match the block fabric. You have to start somewhere, right?
As a side note, the lovely woman who makes me pretty at the hair shop claims to have seen people do homework, hem pants, eat lunch, paint their nails, etc while getting a hair cut, but my embroidery was a first for her. Maybe I will turn her into a quilter yet!
Anyway....Over the weekend I managed to finish what I could of the March block and get a good start on the February block. I need green, blue and taupe/gray/brown floss to really finish them off.
In case you can not see the markings, the February block (on the left) has two little love birds smooching. The March block has a little birdie under a rainbow. They are really adorable. Once they are finished, I will remove the water soluble marking pen, iron them to really make them crisp and post close-up photos.
