If You Build It, They Will Come

OK, I got the roof a little crooked, but hopefully they will still come. I got the kit to make this birdhouse from the Preble Co. Historical Society.

And here is something really amazing: My tulips have NOT been eaten! Aren't they gorgeous?

This poor yellow tulip has practically been showered in Liquid Fence, otherwise it would be in some deer's tummy by now.

The deer won't eat the hyacinths, thank goodness. Here are some of my little hyacinths that are my favorites.

Have a great Sunday!

A Quilt with No Name

The name of this block is No Name Block #2, which I find kind of strange because I've seen all kinds of interesting names for quilt blocks. It seems odd that they couldn't come up with something to name it! It's the first block that I have made for my 2010 block of the month quilt. Never mind that I'm four months behind!

The pattern is on

Like Mermaids?

Well, what's not to like? This mermaid is a digital image by Dawn. A lot of fun to color with pencils and accentuate with a clear gelly roll glitter pen. The Elan stamp is from Belinda Landtroop.

For the background I crumpled up some tissue papers and glued them down to the background. Makes a cool textured panel. I then carefully cut out the image and glued on.

Have a good weekend everyone.

National No Housework Day

Did you know that you're not supposed to do housework today? Well, put down that mop and do something else!

I made some Mother's Day and Father's Day cards. Here are the pics:

This stamp always reminds me of a photo that we have of my Dad's Dad--

Here's a card for someone who sews--

I love the old fashioned look of this one--

Here's a trifold. It's hard to see but the daffodil shows through the round window--

This stamp is really great--

I think I will do some sewing now, since I still have the rest of the day off!
