More playing with felt

Saturday, June 5, 2010
DH and I had quite a few very late nights (or should I say, "early mornings") last week, watching the French Open tennis.  Oh well, Australia's Sam Stosur didn't win in the end, but it did mean that I was able to get lots of embroidery done!

DD gave me a beautiful range of felt for Christmas, so I've had it out playing with it again.  Here's one of my little birdhouse pincushions, this time with my favourite roses.
I made a needlecase to match: 

Then this little beehive pincushion popped into existence:

And something I made a while ago, but couldn't show you till after my friend received it for her birthday - just in case she looked on my blog!  I really love the way this came together and thankfully my friend did too!


Keep an eye out for the next free pattern in the Gifts of Grace block of the month quilt.  It will be ready for downloading next week.  All the quilt top is now finished and I hope to do some quilting on it when I have finished playing with felt.

Hope you have a great week with some stitching time in there somewhere.
