Bluebird babies, cards and finds

 My little bluebirds are almost ready to leave the nest! I REALLY want to HOLD THEM!
 Finds from a couple of weeks ago and Friday finds. We only went to o sale this weekend. Worked my duty day on Saturday.  Lots of hankies! See the sweet apple wall pocket in the photo below! The red and white quilt has a hole in it...not too big. It's my first quilt. I'm thinking it may look good for Christmas. The brown cardboard drawer will get a makeover!

On Thursday I went to Archivers with my BFF and we made cards! I had the "fall" theme going on! Fun day!

Isn't August going by quickly!!! This was a perfect summer week! Just so nice! The heat & humidity is coming because the State Fair starts on Thursday! SUMMER!

Warmly,
deb

Wonderful finds and how nice that you could sneak in some crafting too. Your baby birds will soon be gone. They've grown up so fast. Have a good week ahead.

Cute cards! I haven't made any cards in ages.

I hope you get to see your birds fly off from the nest! ♥

I would love to be able to find the a little bit of time to sit and make cards with a friend. Sounds like such a fun time!

I'm with you on those bluebird babies. I want to hold them too!

Those little bluebirds seem to be late this year but it looks like they will make it. It's nice to see the progress. Our 2nd batch of wrens just flew the nest a few days ago.
Love that quilt!!!
