So my sister (yes, she of the cookie fame) and I love to sew and craft together. Unfortunately she lives in AZ.
I live in California. :( Sad face.
When we get together we try and make up for it by cramming waaaaaaaaaaaay too many things into our trips and and taking on big projects and plans.
We usually don’t finish – but we have a fabulous time anyway.
For some reason while I was in AZ a few weeks ago getting ready for Creative Estates, I thought I’d have plenty of time for our latest grand scheme – which was to create the entire line of Angry Birds and pigs from the tutorials by the amazing Care at Obsessively stitching. Yeah. Not sure what we were thinking.
We did get pretty far though and since I’ve been home we’ve finished up our respective sets. I have to say – I’m in love!!!
I can’t wait to show you – check them out.
Here’s the whole gang. *These are just mine – sis has a whole complete set just like them. :)
And some close-ups for you – because I couldn’t resist posing them just a bit.
“The Good Guys”
Don’t they look ready to take on those pigs? I love the fierceness.
“The Bad Guys”
Note the top little pig. My son had to have one with a black eye so my sister came up with that!
We have one astonished pig and one with a black eye. And the blue bird looks a little puzzled by the whole thing. One too many hits in the beak I think.
I’m not sure what’s going on between these two . . . but I don’t like it. The Egg bird looks sly. Or sheepish. Not very angry. I think he’s got a secret.
Plus he’s lumpy. That’s never good.
“The Pile On!”
The Birds will always triumph!!!
Oh the ridiculousness you have to put up with around here.
Yes my kids are teenagers and no they’re not too old for plush things they can throw around the house.
I figure they’re going to throw something - it might as well be something of my choosing and soft.
And yes. Mr. F.T. is just as bad as they are. :)
