One bird, more birds and then my Birdie Stitches .....

I had some visitors at my kitchen window during the summer. This
inspired me  to continue the Birdie Stitcheries which I started in 2010.
The real birds are nice, but better still :

 Happy to have finished the Birdie Stitches. I joined a Quilt-Along arranged
 through LMS.  It surely took it`s time for me to finish this one.
A bit pale looking here, but with the right lighting it will be fine. I reduced the
 the blocks down to 75% and mixed the blocks a bit according  to the
stitching. Now a finished quilt soon to find  the right  place on the wall. Great :-)
I have used the Garden Party range from Moda. The stitchery is done
on Moda solid grey. The backing is from Moda`s Sunkissed range.   
 
The Autumn leaves are falling!

Love each of the small blocks.-) 
 
The Autumn orange colours of October is here, see the pumpkin and
now just waiting for the Halloween-ghost knocking on the door .
Thanks for reading:-) More to come as the border is soon sewn onto
the Buggy Barn quilt. Bet you are looking forward to seeing ... lol ...
Have a nice week to come all my blogger friend, from Grethe, xx.

What adorable little birdies. I love your stitcheries! WE have a birdfeeder on our deck, and love watching the birds come to visit. Not a large variety, but still fun to watch.

What a cute quilt! Great idea to reduce the size of some of these designs. Birds are fascinating to watch.

Så nydelige broderier med søte fugler. Koselig teppe, men koselig med fugler utenfor vinduet også. Ha en fin uke.
