Tea and Stitching ...

Have you seen the new Tea Thread Packs? OMGosh they are cute! Even this coffee drinker likes them lol So, who's going to stitch these . inquiring minds want to know lol :)




I started Heart in Hand's Thanksgiving Bird this week. These silly birds have been a favorite of mine ever since the first ones were published .. over the years I've stitched all the holiday ones .. Thanksgiving and New Years were the only ones missing .. now I'm really hoping for New Years to be next! I also have 2 of the 4 season Birds stitched .. hopefully I'll finish the other two next year .. I forget wha a fast stitch they really are .. at the Pals Retreat two years ago, a few of the girls started calling them the Poopy Birds lol .. that's been my favoriate name for them every since!

I've also been stitching on Ho Ho Ho this week .. cute design isn't it :) DH loves the frame and told me to go ahead and order it .. it'll be one of my Christmas presents .. maybe from the furbabies!

Thanks for all the comments .. the fleece blankets are really fun .. I've made one and cut another couple. And yes my fingers will hurt just a tad bit from all the cutting lol .. anyone want to help us? I promise not to forget to double tie the knots Kim .. Monica forwarded us about that when she was teaching us .. but it's amazing how you can still miss one or two, there's a bit of double checking to do too! and a warm welcome to a few new blogging friends .. that's for stopping by and saying hi *smile*
I'm grateful for silly long-legged birds, they make me smile ...

I also love the HIH silly birds. :D And the new tea series is pretty darn cute, but not really to my taste. I think I'm the only real tea-drinker in my circles. ;)

I like the new tea series, but not as much as the coffee series. ;) Great start on the LK project. I actually just finished that piece today. I hope to get a picture up on my blog in the next day or so. :)

And I love your Lizzie Kate too!

Now dear Michele, I probably don't even have to answer about the LHN thread pack tea designs...LOL!...since you know I'm a LHN addict :) But YES ME ME ME! I'm on autoship for all of Diane's designs :)

Both your WIPs look brilliant. The bird is so cute and the colours in the L*K one are so bright and cheerful.
