Crafty day.

Sewing kit in a jar:
Did lots of embroidery today.
I got the idea from Martha Stewart's Living,
you can go see the instructions here.
Mine were made with embroidered wool felt.
And I also made another kitty pillow.
If you scroll down a bit you can see the one I made last week.

Thank you so much for visiting :o)
Have a great weekend!

More little birdies...

It was my friend Marlen's baby shower this weekend,
she's having twin baby girls so I made her this watercolor

Ann's birdies ,
Lisa's modbirds
These beauties by HildaI handcarved a branch stamp
and made some tags to go with the presents.
And made these two little wool and felt birds
to hang on their cribs:
