Cute lil' birdie!

My friend Angela participated in the Pincushion Swap we did on the Yahoo groups site, Backporch Friends. I have gotten some really cute pincushions and I'll share a picture of them once I have them all out to swap. In the box she sent was a gift for me of this cute-as-a-button birdie helper.

Look at what a little gem she is! Her little basket is filled with teeny tiny little scissors, a red thimble, a needle threader and a pack of needles. ALL THAT in that little basket that probably measures one inch!!! Angela makes some lovely Raggedy Ann dolls and lots of prim deco stuff that she sells on Etsy so if you're ever needing something that looks like it was in the dirt and then got run over (LOL), she's the gal to call! ;o)
She has been going through medical treatments so if you said a little prayer for her, that would sure help send some blessings her way!

We got tickets to another Angel game last night. My husband works with a guy who is a season ticket holder with GREAT seats. This was our second game in five days....for free! On Saturday, a neighbor we haven't seen in years knocked on our door with tickets he was trying to give away. They were in the nose-bleed section and it was HOT up there but it was still fun to be at the ball park. It cooled off for about five minutes yesterday!!! LOL We had nice temps of about 80 degrees so it was a great night with great seats. And the Angels won 5-0!! Whoohoo.....c'mon championships and playoffs!!!

I finished the little stitchery I started for my Brown Bag Buddy, Joyce, after we got home from the game. (I can't show you in case she's peeking!) hehe Then I got in my stash and pulled out some fabrics for borders.

In Joyce's brown bag, was the fabric on the right, the kind of gray-blue snowflakes. I pulled out some Christmas fabrics and found a cute Thimbleberries print that I thought would work perfect. I wrote Joyce and asked her if I "needed" to use her fabric. LOL She said "No, surprise me!" So what do you think? The three on the right, or the three on the left???

That Angela is the sweetest. I love your little bird with the basket of goodies. I'm not help on the fabric picking dilemma, though. Both combos look good to me!

The birdie is cute. Am I missing something on the fabric choices, I only see 3 fabrics?

That birdie flew the coop to YOUR house? I have been missing it.
