Well, as today 's photo shows, I have been making little felt birds as Christmas Tree ornaments, to be given as gifts (assuming I get them finished in time to give them). I started working on these over Thanksgiving, and have been busy with them --and recovering from a cold--ever since. I found the tutorial over on the wonderful site of http://meggiecat.blogspot.com so you should hop over there and check out all the retro Christmas stuff she's so generously posted. In addition, the give-away is over. So I am pleased to announce not just one winner, but two. There were so many comments, I was inspired to give more. The first winner will receive the little doll, plus some other goodies. The second winner will receive a bird ornament and some additional goodies. So the first winner is, Lola Jo and the second name I drew was Neighborhood Gal. I will be contacting you and as soon as I have your snail mail addresses and am not at work (I work all weekend so if you shoot me email don't be surprised by a bit of lag time in the response) I will get those things together to send out to you. Everyone else, thank-you again for all your nice comments and for checking out my little blog.
