More Mosaics and Some Springtime Birds

With Spring and the end of the school year colliding right now, I'm finding myself running in circles.
Busy -- Busy -- Busy!!
We're trying to get our yard and garden growing and looking good.
We've got kiddo activities left and right.
And then there's sewing... I try to squeeze some in whenever I can but it has only been a little bit lately. 
So this post is just to catch up on a few small finishes lately:

These are Mosaic Color Play squares from an IFQ swap.
This one came to me from Ann...

I this is the one I sent her.
 The next one came from Shirley...
 And this one I sent to her.


I've also dabbled a bit more in fabric post cards.
These cute little birds were inspired by a little note card that came with one of my swap blocks.
I had some fun with it
 I made some more bookmarks to match.
Most of them I shared with the great ladies in my reading group.
They're so cute!  
Maybe I ought to use one myself to mark my books instead of that silly scrap of paper I picked up off of my desk.

Nice MCP blocks, and I am really loving your postcards. Very clever and nicely done. I also like how carried the theme over to your bookmarks. You have some lucky ladies in your reading group.
