Some more Little Birdie Stitches!

As usual, I haven't been keeping up well with these blocks. I just finished June and July, and the calendar is about ready to flip to August!
When I first started this block of the month, I stitched my blocks exactly as Little Miss Shabby stitched the samples. But as time has gone on, I'm getting brave about altering the designs slightly. Sometimes I simply omit details to keep the design simple (and quicker to hand stitch!), and in the case of the June block I did quite a bit of personalizing for this quilt's future recipient! I'm going to keep my June block under wraps for awhile longer, just in case the recipient stops by my blog.
I can still show my July block, though!

And now, I will sit back and wait for August. :)
