What is cute, cute, cute and has chickadees, cardinals, goldfinches and bluebirds plastered all over it?

…my new, very birdy, cute bird fabric tote! Today when I opened my mailbox, I found a large envelope inside from my cousin, Char. It seems when she was at her local fabric store she stumbled across a very unique piece of fabric that reminded her of me. Can you imagine? This fabric screams bird lover, so she picked it up and sewed it into a tote! It is so darn cute I can’t stand it. Thanks, Char!!! Check it out.

It has a little pocket on the front that is 
the perfect size for my field journal. 

Bip, our Cornish Rex cat, decided to get in on the action. I think he was looking for a can of tuna.

…or maybe he was just trying to see if the birds were real.

…just curious, Kel, pay no attention to me...
gotta sniff it...gotta study it...it's my job.

So pretty!!! I totally love it because the stores don't ever carry anything bird related that I ever see. You are going to look too cute with that on your shoulder!

That's very special. I love that there are different species of birds in the print and not just one.

Laure...yes it is! It's my little field journal/sketchbook!

I have that same fabric in a partially finished quilt for the bed that maybe I should try and get done this year.....
BTW, very cute kitty!

Kelly said...

Hi Ruthie...cool...how fun to have a quilt in that pattern! You'll have to take a picture when you finish it and post it!!

Love the fabric! I've seen it before, I thin, but didn't buy any for some stupid reason. There was also a whole series of fabric with each of the state birds on seperate pieces a few years back.

Hi Mary, I'm glad Char picked it up for me! I've already used it several times and everyone comments on it. I'd like to make an apron out of it!!
