Don't Say I Didn't Warn You!

It's U.G.L.Y. It is, isn't it? It's that freebie from Lilybet Designs. She said to stitch it with one thread, but I didn't want too...I think I should have listened! I stitched it over two on 50 ct linen, and it's just U.G.L.Y. Who ever saw a yellow bird anyway? And look at that dorky bird on the bottom right! I even used all the right colors!!

Here are some cute feed bags, I stitched these a few years ago. We found these patterns at an LNS (Dixie Darlin) in Pigeon Forge, TN. I'm almost positive that the patterns were made by somebody in their shop? I have no idea who I loaned my reindeer pattern too!

Here's the front of the bag---Don't you love that blue?!

The back:

And here's the Snowman Bag. Wish I would have used more fabric, so I would have a bigger bag, but I wasn't THINKING! LOL



I'll leave you with the most recent pictures of my boys. Andrew had an orchestra concert and I told Luke to go change out of his muddy shirt. I told him he didn't need to dress up, but just put on a non-muddy shirt! :) He came back downstairs with his white dress shirt and black suit jacket. He doesn't even wear that to church!

Here's Andrew by himself with his viola:

And Luke by himself:

And here's our Christmas picture! Red eyes and all! I did fix those before I mailed out the picture!

Awww, that isn't too bad. I think it has more to do with the designer's choice of odd colors not your stitching!

Cute stitching Sara! Those funny bags are a riot!

Marion said...

Cute kids...but you already know that! LOL
Did Luke get his bookmarks yet?
Take care

Oh, the bags are great, love them! And the family pictures are so cute, greetings to you all!

I think i have seen it stitched with the birds in red, and that looks good, could you redo the birds? then it would look more christmassy.

Ahhh...the birds arent bad!!! They really have a kind of prim look... Anyway, you did good and I love the picture of your family!~ Very handsome~~ Faye

I love the Rudolph bag!

Actually, I rather like the yellow birds. I agree with FayeRaye. They look rather primitive. But maybe you could do what Monsoon suggested and make the birds a different color. Cute finishes all around, and your boys look great!

You have the most BEAUTIFUL family
Loved looking at your blog.
I happen to love that UGLY design, although it really is not ugly! lol
I think it looks primitive, and I love all things primitive :)

Sara, it's not really UGLY but quite different! perhaps fancy up the border a bit or something. Or, send it to me (hint hint!).
Adore the feed bags! Now those I would love to stitch!
Great Christmas photo! Such handsome men in your family (or as I call mine "my himem" (like a harem))!
Merry Christmas!

I think the yellow birds are C.U.T.E.! As for the family photos - all cute!
