Glitter Houses for the Birds!

Yes, I do believe I've mentioned my love for glitter once or twice!  I finished these up this morning:

Glitter Houses for the Birds!

I love birds but these aren't for outside!  My husband would call these, "Look At Birdhouses"!  He learned a long time ago that anything stitched on or handmade is off limits to him.  Don't touch!!!  That's for looking at!

I glued some vintage lace to the roof of each birdhouse and then added glitter.  They're so sparkly!

And another finish of mine:

Floral Crazy Quilt Block 6

I finished this block up this morning before I went into town.  I can't believe I did 6 blocks already.  They seem to be stitching up a little quicker than my purses.  They're only 1 inch smaller! 

Anyway, here is block #7:

Floral Crazy Quilt Block 7

Not sure if I'll start on this one right away or if I want to do something else.  I have all these great ideas of things I want to do but I only have 2 hands and 1 brain.  We won't go there!  Ha, ha, ha!

Well, I have an order to put together and then I plan to relax and look through my magazines until my husband gets home.

I love the blocks you are stitching. Very pretty. Is it going to make a whole piece of something? Can't wait to see it finished if it is.

and the bird houses are very lovely. brings out the inner-angel with all those sparkles! :-)

Good thing you're not running a contest for us to vote on the block we like the best, because I certainly wouldn't be able to choose!

I love the bare look of the new block. It will be great to see what goes on there. =) Especially comparing it to the finished one above it.

Those bird houses are the cutest things!
