More Prizes From Birdie

Last month I entered a giveaway at Lil Birdie Stitches and won. Not only did Birdie send me that adorable cupcake to hold my scissors, she also sent me six skeins of DMC 57 variegated floss.

I wonder if I will get into trouble for showing the bar code. Is there a copyright attorney in the house? And, if there is, can you please advise us on the whole Plaid/Vogart/removing photos from Flickr case? Thanks.

Another prize from Birdie was an apron pattern, and as I am typing this, I just realized I don't have a picture of it but it's to make three vintage-style aprons. As an added bonus, Birdie sent me this apron because she thought I'd like it. It's gingham with chicken scratch so I love it. There is a stain on it which is fading from washing but I have no idea why my camera made that white blotch over by the pocket. Ya know, if you tilt your head to the side, it kind of looks like Mickey Mouse.

You can see part of my Scottie dog in the first picture. Here's the whole pillowcase. Maybe one day, it will become an apron. And, if it does, those two pigs I posted the other day will fly out the window and off to the moon.

Did you do the cross stich on the pillowcase? I love the black stitching on the pink gingham. That WOULD make an adorable apron, Patty. Give it a go...I'd like to see a post about flying vintage pigs.

Your pillowcase is beautiful just the way it is and I love the blue ginghan apron, stain or no stain. I'm happy for you, for winning the give away! Have a great day! Twyla

Adorable pillowcase. It's calling out to be a sweet apron! I own a scotty dog and "Silhouette" is the best dog. Would love to make an apron like that. Also, I do love Lil' Birdie's name and will be stopping by there.
