Just Call Me Bird

The snow is rapidly melting, my back deck is almost clear and it will soon be time for Chablis and I to start refinishing furniture out back again.  I decided that I needed a cute work apron, so I got ahold of my friend Cathy over at Stitchfork Designs.  Cathy designs the most amazing embroidery projects and last year I had her design an apron for Chablis.  You can go see what she came up with here.

So let me tell you the story behind my apron design.  My kids call me Bird because they say I'm small and scrawny like a little bird and I'm constantly fluttering around the house doing something.   My daughter will walk thru the room and ask me "are ya peeping?"  To which I reply, "Peep, peep."   Plus, when I get up in the morning my hair sticks up like Woodstock's and they laugh and call it my "birds nest."    So, Bird it is.



How cute is this dainty little blue bird and I like how she's dangling the blue ribbon....


Chablis and I both fell in love with the adorable little birdy feet scampering up the neck tie....


Thank you so much Cathy!  You did another fab job for me and I couldn't be happier.  I almost hate the thought of getting paint and sawdust all over it.


If you're interested in having Cathy create a one of a kind, special item for you, contact her through her blog.  You won't be disappointed.
