Birds of a Feather...

This project is now complete.  Love how these little birdhouses turned out.  Now all that's left to be done is to box them up and gift wrap!

For the birds...

The quilt I'm currently working on has to take a backseat (at least for a while).  Christmas will be here before you know it and I've got tons to do to get ready.  (Our tree and other holiday decorations are up - the day after Thanksgiving - our tradition.)

We usually send our grandchildren gift cards or checks, but I still like to send along a little something to open.  I took a quick run to Michaels yesterday to see if I could find anything to get my creative juices flowing.  I saw these sweet little $1 wood birdhouses and just had to take some home.

Step 1 - gesso

Step 2 - allow to dry then sand, sand, sand!

Step 3 - apply ceramic tile adhesive through sequin waste to form roof tiles

Now I need to wait for these to dry, sand some more and paint like mad!  I'm curious to see how they will turn out.  I don't like to plan too far ahead especially on a project like this...whimsy works best that way at least for me.

Working on a new art quilt - building it as I go much more to do!
