another one for the flock

i would like to introduce you to millicent (milli for short)
this little lady likes to snuggle all day long. she is very fond of classical music coupled with a chilled glass of sweet champagne. she has a high IQ and loves the challenge of a cryptic crossword. she is a loyal friend and will be there for you in your time of need.
there you have it another gorgeous girl to add to my flock.
i cant help post about two other things that were made in our household over the weekend. first of all middle child ~ mia ~ stitched this and filled it with 'treasures'
i drew the outline and then blanket stitched it into a pouch. that house is stitched all by mia my almost 5 year old.
then last night we enjoyed a celebration at my fathers house and we took this to share. we were celebrating lilis 7th birthday, renatas 23rd birthday and australia day.
chocolate swirl cake with butter icing... mmmmm
i am working on another design which has a connection with the shape of my youngest child's birthmark.... i will keep you posted on it's progress.


  1. Love your little birds Rosey and the fact that each has a little story to go with it.

  2. Oh I love the little house pouch!!! How clever, I might have to borrow the idea. I tend to keep little things in boxes but sometimes that's not exactly a space saver - not to mention as pretty as this!! Well done!!

  3. Millicent sounds interesting! I like how you describe all the birds' personalities.

    I've been thinking about a comment you made when I posted collages a few days ago. Perhaps you could try making something deliberately ugly or use completely different materials than the ones you're used to? Do the opposite to whatever your instinct is? If I ever feel stuck or a bit scared to not do well that's what I do.

  4. Yummy cake.Happpy Belated Birthday to Lili.I will be back in a few days,had to stop by your blogs, love them.Take Care!

  5. Wow, Mia did such a great job with her stitching! She is a natural, I bet.

    Mmmm, that cake looks delicious.

  6. Mia, I love your little house and the treasures to go inside...the cake looks scruptious!!! and Happy Australia Day! Is that like Independence Day in the U.S.?

  7. I just love these little birds. They are so easy to make, and you can use up your scrap stash. I made several of these sweet little birds at Christmas for family and friends.
    Thanks for coming by and leaving such warm comments :)

  8. Celebrations all round . Love the new bird and the house , clever , clever .
