Me and Mel decided to make some bird feeders for the birds for Mother's day. We used bathroom cups - spread on peanut butter - then roll them in birdseed. We pierced a small hole in the bottom to knot the braid - or string - or whatever you find to hang it up with:)
We hung 3 in the back yard... and a couple out front.
Did you ever wonder what to do with that Moda tape that comes wrapping your fat quarter collections? They work perfect for hanging up the bird feeders!
Hubby putting together some Ikea cupboards for my fabric!
Hubby's brother came over to give him a hand!
By the end of the first day, the beers came out! Hard working men need nourishment!
This is the first two that they got together! The doors are soft closing! So nice! They are painted a soft grey. Love the color!
Another one over here! Hope there is enough room in these 3 cupboards to hold all of my stash! Told hubby I might need more and he said "There's no room"! I said "There is always the guest room"! Won't share his comment to that!
Here I am putting away my stash. Of course by the time I'm done, it will be stuffed to the brim with quilty goodness :)
This quilt is going to our friend, John's Mom. John gives us our free concert tickets. We made him a "Seahawks Superbowl" quilt last year. So this year, we are making his 84 year old Mother a quilt. I decided on some vintage prints and 30's fabrics. I'm loving it so far!
My grade school friend, Nanci, sent me this fabulous small cutting mat and holder. Has room for my rotary cutters and other things... It is so handy to use when you are sewing and need to trim an edge. I use it so much!
