i'm back... {and a little project}

well, hello there! have ya missed me? i sure have missed being here... apparently this little blog of mine was in need of a summer vacay, too...
 
the old pc is officially kaput...
 
so right now, i'm typing from my shiny new laptop... and it's good to be back... i feel like i have so many things to share...
 
first up is a fun project that i'd been wanting to make for a long time...
 
 
you see, my mom and aunt went to new york a while back... there's a shop there called purl soho whose site i look at online all the time... many of you may have already heard of it... but if you've never taken a peek you really should... there's a whole lot of pretty going on there...
 
i told my mom that if she was going to be in new york {i've never been} that she should really try to find this little shop... she wasn't sure if she would have time or if they would even be able to find it...
 
well, one day... they walked... and walked... and walked... and they found it...
 
while i wish i had some photos from the inside of this amazing shop... what i will share with you is a photo of what was brought home for me...
 
 a lovely little surprise... i was SO excited... i untied the twill ribbon and unwrapped the tissue to find adorable fabrics and the little birds book that i had been wanting... 
 
i couldn't wait to make that little bird...  but first, i needed to be sure to pick a fun color of felt for the little guy...
 
i chose aqua... {can't seem to get enough of that color lately}... and i think he turned out really cute...
so cute... that i made my mom a little red one for her birthday...
doesn't it make you happy to finally complete something that you've really been wanting to get to?
 
some of you may have seen my little bird pics on instagram... if you'd like, you can follow me there... @angreese is my user name...
 
for now...
have a happy day~
