Monday Show and Tell

Still catching up with the Little Birdie Stitches BOM by Little Miss Shabby... The block patterns and instructions for the quilt are in her sidebar..... and the Flickr account is fun to look at - so many different colour ways made....

This is the February  block - Valentine's month


This cute little Kokeshi doll is from a Melly and Me pattern - I used a raw linen which gives a nice texture without being rough... sent to a new little puglet baby girl.....



Earlier this year I won a prize from Michelle of Rag-Tag Stitchin' and she sent the lovely little bear hugs tag with it.... so I had to copy her idea and use up a couple of sweet little birdie designs from Jenny of Elefantz which I had stitched last year....


Michelle has lots of lovely patterns available and often features in Australian craft magazines
(I get a real kick when someone I 'know' has a pattern in a magazine - do you?)

This is a cute stitchery for the front of a bag pattern of Michelle's


Can you tell what my latest addiction is?
I just cannot sit without something in my hands in the evenings

It's such fun to see what other people are making - I could spend all day happily bloghopping.....mmm

Hi Fiona, lovely stitching yet again. I love Michelle's designs too. I'm going to make some of those little tags, they are delightful.

Lovely stitcheries Fiona! I think I have seen a similar teddy and sewing machine as a folk art painting. I had seen it in a magazine last week. I wondered how it would look as a stitchery and now I know! It looks beautiful.

Serenata said...

Oh oh oh, I didn't know wear to look first they are all so lovely. Very lovely in fact. I'm sure I probably overuse that word but well they are lovely! ;-) The little birds are sweet and well the sewing machine is just great.

Beautiful stitcheries. I am addicted to it too, I love being able to draw on a design and get to work with just some threads.

HI Fiona, I'm catching up a bit on my blogging. *grin* Thanks for sharing on Monday. I love all your projects! Makes me want to start a new one. *grin* I love Michelle's work, too. In fact, she's designed a special pattern for my Chirstmas Club this year. Have a great evening, Fiona.
