A few days to spare....

I've just finished my stitchalong item for July, Natalie Birds Tis the Season bag. I decided to not make mine with a Christmas theme and chose fabrics from my stash. I needle turned a cute house and stitched a little tree.....I also found a little bird button, too cute!



Its a nice bag, the good thing about this stitchalong is that Im making projects I wouldn't have otherwise...thanks Chooky!
