It’s official!!!!


Well, good morning ladies, and welcome to Jenny’s and my Birdcage Challenge weekend!

I know Jenny’s away for today visiting with a friend and enjoying this beautiful scenery

strand townsville

and chatting away a storm!  We really do live in God’s country, don’t we???

I hope you’re able to follow me on our weekend.  I’ve taken the liberty, whilst Jenny’s away, to get started!

I did try gathering everyone’s emails together so I could send out more personalised info, but that was easier said than done!  Sorry ladies, but once we get started, if you email me with how you’re going, I’ll start up a photo gallery and we can email back and forth with any issues you’re having! (Not that I’m an expert….but we can work things out together….you know the old saying….two heads are better than one!?)

My plan is to have all the birds made today, and get all the birdcage paraphenalia cut and organised before I travel to Charters Towers tomorrow to visit with Jenny to work on our birdcages.  Have you set yourself some goals to complete your project this weekend, or is this weekend just the jumping board to get you started????  I’d love to hear!

Firstly, I’m following Sarah’s pattern in the August issue of Homespun, and here are my fabric choices for my birds

006 (3)

I’ve already made one (and a half!!)….I do plan to have my 5 done today so I can concentrate on the birdcage tomorrow at Jenny’s.


and here is where I’m up to this morning with all my goodies sorted (well, most anyway!)


So, I now officially open the Jenny of Elefantz and Sugarlane Quilts Birdcage Challenge Weekend Sew-In……OPEN!!!!

Good luck and I can’t wait to see how you’re going!

Hi Wendy, Thanks for organising this weekend sew-in. I've just put a photo on my blog of the fabrics I'm using for my birdie projects. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing.
