Blue bird of happiness
I cut the binding before I put MP on the longarm and I put it...where? I looked everywhere and guess where I found it?
In the garbage can!
Yes! I cleaned up all the extra bits of the flannel and threw them away and obviously I got carried away.
On the right hand side of the picture you can see one opened up with 6 tea bags neatly stored in there. No more bad tea at restaurants! Or if you only like a certain kind, these can store that as well.
I finished up these projects by stitching the original back together and putting it with all my tea bags. I used up all my favorites but lucky for me I am going out for tea on Wednesday, I will stock it again!
However, I have 28 dish towels. My husband always says that overkill is the best kill and I sure over killed it on the dish towels. I will save them and make them for presents throughout the year.
I hope to make at least 4 and finish the binding and only then can I start wrapping or as I like to call it, shove it all in bags!
My sorority sisters gave us blue topaz necklaces to remember Darcy since that is her birth stone.
I also wanted to remember her on my Christmas Tree so I told my daughter that I was going to buy a small bird in memory of Darcy who flew away from us but who we will never forget. She said, oh get me one, too, and look for a blue one. Perfect, a blue topaz bird!
Here's to the Blue Bird of happiness flying back into all of our lives.
