Cottage Pincushion

Publish Post
I haven't been idle over the past few weeks, only I've kept jumping from one project to another and haven't got round to actually finishing anything ... So this Long Weekend I had to make sure I finished at least one thing, and here it is. This is from a Stitching Cow pattern, called Sewing Machine Friends. This is the cottage pincushion from that pattern. The second part of the pattern is a Scissors Dolly. I will post a photo of that when it's finish - hopefully over the next few days. (By the way - the stitched lines are supposed to be crooked!)

Blue Bird On My Heart

This is the other bird from the On My Heart BOM. This one's called Blue Bird On My Heart. The fabric I chose for the bird looked more pink than blue, but it "blued" up once I'd added the blanket stitch!

I'll probably make the bee and butterly ones too, and combine them to make a quilted wallhanging. The other two BOMs are an angel - but I'm not too fond of angels so I don't think I'm going to make that block ... and a sewing-themed one, which would look nice on a bag.
