A little bird told me.....

...that Lori over at HumbleQuilts was asking people to post their progress on the quiltalong on our blogs. If you remember this post, I am calling my quilt Pumpkin Fields instead of Strawberry Fields because of my fabric choices. I must confess that with all my stitching lately, this has been sadly neglected. I will hopefully get to it again this week when my latest UFO project is finished. After all, I have a fob again ready and waiting to give away when this has been finished. *grins*

It is the busy season for birds and I finished my third part of the SoloBrode SAL last week containing five sweet little tweets added to the design. This project stitches up so quickly that I find myself longing for the next part of the SAL constantly. Not like I don't have anything else to work on! *wink*



Are you having a creative Sunday? Back to my UFO stitching.....

I like your stitching too - and also think the birds are so cute.

not much creative going on here today - Gavin spent the night and was here for breakfast, My inlaws and stepson and his wife were here for lunch.
the rest of my children will be here for supper as this is Nina's birthday -

I am very hopeful that the rest of this week will be less busy and I can do some stitching. I got a big bundle of very nice fabric at an estate sale yesterday

Lori said...

Awesome job on the pumpkin fields!! I am so happy you posted a link on my blog.
Your stichery looks so fun and addictive.

Anne Ida said...

Hi! I popped over from Lori's Mr. Linky to peep at your little quilt. And I have to say your Pumpkin Fields is absolutely yummy! Oh, I LOVE it! I have been itching to make this little quilt, but haven't gotten around to it, seeing yours, my fingers itch even more ;o)

AnnieO said...

The Pumpkin Fields look wonderful and cozy with those colors! I love to watch a local field where they plant pumpkins nearly every year. Glad you played along. My quiltalong project is only a top so far.

The little birdies are adorable. I can see why you are eager for each new part!

Jackie said...

Your quilt is gorgeous Heidi! I can see why you changed the name. Your quilting pattern really suits the quilt.

Barb said...

Oh birds Heidi aren't they just so sweet.Another lovely little quilt. No happy dances for me this week. I did paint a bench though lol.
Take care sweetie hope the pain has eased.

Ann at Prairie Primrose said...

I love your colors! All of a sudden I want to make a pumkin pie!

Mary said...

Lovely colors in the quilt. The little birds are too sweet!!

Jenny said...

Heidi, your quilt is lovely as usual. The colors are wonderful and make me think " Fall " Your SAL is coming along nicely, I love the birds. I have baby birds nesting in my garden, as well as a whole flock living in my trees. Every morning as soon as the sun comes up the convention begins and we all begin our day with bird song. My weekend was busy but I did manage to cross-stitch on a sampler for a little while. Have a good week my friend, hugs from CA.

Elly said...

Je quiltje en vogeltjes zijn schattig. Wat een knappe ontwerpsters!
Mijn zondag was een stuk minder productief op handwerkgebied maar ik heb er wel van genoten.
Hugs en groetjes
Elly
