Happy Birthday Michelle....


Michelle has a birthday (today in fact) but she decided to go for a trip so I had to work late a few nights to get a little pressie sent to her in time ....

It's a sweet pincushion designed by Natalie bird.... I do like the detail in the sides.

On this side is a stitchery 'even the tiniest bird sings from the heart' and an applique mini house


on the other side are fiddly diddly 1/2" hexagons and a more simple piece of fabric....

I added quilting to all the sides...


... quilting included in the bottom and filled it up with crushed walnut shells so it's a nice weight (and apparently good for the health of the pins!)


Its about 3" high and 4" on the sides....  a little button on the top finishes it off...


all wrapped up like a Christmas pudding (well it is July!) in some French General...



Happy Birthday Michelle - I'm enjoying reading her trip up North.....
