Birds of a Feather…


* Staker Christmas Ornament Swap *

I happened to get my dear friend AwtemNymf  as my partner for this ornament swap.  We decided to make each other  a bird ornament using the ‘Wild Birds’ pattern from the Fall 2008 issue of Quilts and More.  Then every time we looked at the birds, we could think of each other and what a great friend we have. 

I made this little cutie out of fancy orange fabric since Awtem is wild about Halloween and fall colors.

and I couldn’t help but send these wooden  Halloween stickers.

Since I didn’t have the magazine, Awtem  sent me my own copy with the bird she made for me.

And since she likes to spoil me, she also sent these other goodies too.

Thank you to Shannon for hosting this swap!
