This adorable birdie was designed by my niece, Penny - she is such an artiste!
This week I finally learned the proper way to sew a blanket stitch, the edging that brings such magic to felt ornaments. A Google search for "how to blanket stitch" led me to an easy tutorial. I think I will get better and better at this with practice.
On Pinterest, I spotted this snowman made from sheet music and decided to try it. I found "vintage sheet music" online and copied that.
Remember last weekend's snowman plaque? This guy is very different from that version ~
This snowman will be cute enough on the Christmas tree. He's trying to grab my button, right?! Must be a blogging snowman.
Several of last week's readers wanted to see pictures from my childhood book, A Day at the Playground, so here are a few.
Isn't that little cherub face the cutest?
The book was published in 1951 and has an inscription that it was given to my brother by our aunt. Guess when I came along a couple years later, it was passed down to me.
A Day at the Playground was written by Miriam Schlein, and again the pictures are by Eloise Wilkin.
Hope you enjoyed this Friday Potpourri. Have a great weekend!
Don't forget we have a fun giveaway going on here ~
