I finished block 1 of the Birdie Stitches BOM. These fabrics are sooo cute!

Originally, I had done this in the turquoise background, but the longer I looked at it, I knew it was too overpowering.

This time I used Moda’s Grunge in white. I like this version much better. I do wish I’d done the snowman in a darker pink and when all is said and done, I’m sure this block will be on its 3rd version. I’m just that way. I want it perfect!

I did a cluster of french knots in his earmuff and a fringed scarf.ย  I used a hand dyed variegated floss for the scarf and earmuff. I found an awesome store on Etsy that dyes all their threads and flosses. Its crochet4u2dye4. They sell embroidery and crochet threads. Check it out! You won’t be disappointed in the variety they have.
