My young man is 17 today! It seems like yesterday he was just a little one. They grow so fast! We celebrated by going to eat dinner with two of his friends at a local Mexican restaurant. His Father and I gave him a trip to see his friend that lives in Colorado. So he will be going in August for his first commercial plane ride. Last year on his birthday we took him on his first plane ride ever, but it was a private plane. I told him this plane ride will be different than the last one. Probably not feel like he is flying. The other flight was a little bumpy. So to say the least he is excited about going next month.

I made this bird cage pillow for a friend's birthday gift last night. Wrapping it up today but wanted to post a photo of it first. The crown one I made a few weeks ago for myself. They both are made from a linen type material. I just bought a pillow form to insert inside the casing I sewed. Believe me I am NOT a seamstress so this had to be easy if I did it. The images are iron-ons. Don't remember where I got the crown one but the bird one came from Olive Rue on Etsy.
This cute little birdie came in a kit from http://www.junkart.com/ . Everything came in the kit from the fabric to the spool and bird. Even the banner. It says SPRING on it but it's hard to see in the photo. My wonderful friend Mary bought the kit for me at Paper Cowgirl http://papercowgirl.blogspot.com/ a few weekends ago. It was fun to put together.
These are some new bird pendants I came up with to sell at Stamp Asylum http://www.stampasylum.blogspot.com . I still need to add them to my Etsy store.
