“Quilted” Birdhouse is finished!

I finally finished the “quilted” birdhouse!  Yay!  It’s available for sale on our Etsy shop.  Check it out! 

Their are ten different “fabrics” in this design, each individually designed and handpainted by me.  Every little patch was shaded and the whole thing was sealed with six coats of glossy paint to finish.  Since taking this picture, I have added a little peg by the door for the birds to have easier access to their new home! 

I really love it, let me know what you think!

W.I.P. Update

 

So many projects, not enough hours in the day!  🙂 

Here are some pics of what I’m working on:

There’s the “Rest Time Roll-up” mentioned in an earlier post, four more rows and it’ll be ready for borders…..

……the “Pheasant Quilt”, also from an earlier post, taking an extended break from this one…..

…….a bargello crib quilt (also, previously mentioned)….trying to think of the perfect words to applique in the brown rows…..

…..the newest addition to the W.I.P.’s, a hand-painted  “quilted” gourd birdhouse, just needs a few coats of glossy paint and it’ll be done…..

…….and another ‘quilted’ gourd in a much less finished stage, needs alot yet….

……..and, of course, there is the never-ending job of laundry, cleaning, cooking….you get my drift. 🙂

 I am waiting for a sunny day to take some pics outside of my quilt-top stash to post on my portfolio (coming soon).  Hopefully, tomorrow…….

Until then…

Be Creative!
