Le Challenge - WINGS and a Giveaway

I have had a busy month making plenty of things with "wings" and if you are visiting this blog for the "It's for the birds" blog hop and you yourself have made something with wings (we all know you did) then you should also join in the fun over at Le Challenge Blog.

First off my "It's for the birds" gone poultry toting with a set of baby chicks, a sleeping mama and a fishing daddy!

I am really getting into stitching and I have Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt to  thank for that since I would never have even thought of doing it except I won a gift certificate over at Janes etsy shop and she has a ton of Precencia threads.  Look at my rooster.

Now check out my Ladybug and Bee that I did for the Honeycomb Stitch Along over at Echinops and Aster blog.  These little insects have wings too!

You can read more about the pillow I made here.
And I just adore the Butterfly dress that I made for my daughter using the Forget me knot dress pattern by Me Sew Crazy.
And the back, it is supposed to look like a butterfly, mmm... I tried, the original pattern just has a circle and I tried to double it, what do you think.

Here is a better shot with my daughter wearing it, while trying to jump on a Ladybug at IKEA.  I wish I could buy this Ladybug for her, it would be so fun.

The fabric is Cocoon by Valori Wells, the top is Cashmere in Ruby White and the bottom is Liv in Coral.

I almost forgot, I have a giveaway going on, if you want 1 yard of parrot fabric, all you have to do is say "Parrots" in the comment section and I will enter your name in the drawing.  I picked this piece of fabric up way before I even started sewing, it was on sale at my scrapbook store that also doubled as a fabric store.  And I loved it, but now have no idea of what to do with it, so if you have an idea, then I would love to pass it on.
 I will be writing names down and then doing random drawing on Saturday May 18, night time, my time in Greece, or like 12pm California time. The giveaway is now over and the winner is Britt-Inger, I have contacted her.
