Birdie Stitches - Blocks 7-10

It has been quite a week around here. After hearing about Wayne's passing, I tried to spend as much time with MIL as I could. I sat with her quite a bit on Monday. On Tuesday I had to get our clothes ready for the funeral. Needed to make a trip to town for hose. I seldom wear them, so didn't have any decent ones on hand. Wednesday was the funeral. It was sad, but also very touching. He was a very loved man. Three of his grandkids wrote letters about their time spent with him. His oldest grandchild is a mortician. She works at a funeral home out in Kansas, but the funeral home here, let her help push her grandpa's casket out of the church and drive the hearse to the cemetery. I was quite touched. It was good to see so many of Kevin's aunts, uncles, and cousins. I want to thank all of you for your kind words to us. It means a lot to know that so many of you out there in blogland care for us.  I spent Thursday cleaning the house. It was really needed. (grin) Today was town day. We are now stocked with groceries for the next two weeks. I even came in under budget. That is always a good feeling.

My evenings have been spent quilting and doing redwork. I finished hand quilting the Daisy Star this week. I will probably wait till I get the binding on before taking a picture to share. I also got caught up with Birdie Stitches. I haven't shared any of these blocks since the June block, so here goes. This is the July block.
Here is the August block.
 September's block was a lot of fun. I tried to get a variety of leaf colors.
Of course, I enjoyed the October block. I love pumpkins. I even enjoyed stitching those little spiders. LOL
There are only 2 blocks left to this cute BOM. I am so glad that I have kept up with it. Now while I wait for the next block to be posted, I am working on a Christmas Stitchery. I forgot to write down the blog I am getting these from. She posts a new stitchery block each Friday. I think she only has one or two more to post. These are supposed to be made into a banner, but I plan to make mine a little Christmas quilt. I'll share these next time. For now, I am tired, and just want to sit in front of the tv and work on some handwork. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a wonderful weekend.

So sorry to hear about Kevin's uncle, prayers for all of your family. Have a great weekend I may even get out my winter wonderland and work some more on it, you have inspired me to get going on it.

Love how you've done your little birdie blocks. I need to catch up on mine. Sorry to note in the previous post the passing of Kevin's Uncle. It is always hard to lose a loved one. How grateful that we can have memories to hold on to and family to share them with. Sounds like you have a great support system. Take care. Nola

I'm just now checking in on your blog - been busy working on a closet. I'm sorry to hear of the loss in your family and may our Precious Lord bring you all great comfort. Your birdie BOMs are really cute. I like having stitchery included in quilting...makes things interesting.

Hi Sweetie! I know this has been a difficult and tiring week for you. Happy to hear that so many were able to come and attend Wayne's funeral, and that his one granddaughter got to assist with it. I am sure that would have meant a lot to him.

Your Birdie Stitcheries are lovely. I have downloaded all of them, but am still working on January! LOL! Guess I'll get them finished one of these days!

Take care and get some rest. I'll call you soon!

Your blocks look great! I think doing them scrappy is going to make a lovely quilt! :0)

These are so cute! I have been sewing and quilting to earn a little money for Christmas this year, but you have got me wanting to just sew for myself and family in the worst way. :) I think I'm going to pull out my Christmas quilt and get sewing today. Thanks for the inspiration!
