Red Bird

289986152
Well, I finished up the pincushion. Isn't he cute? It's a bit fiddly to make but the results are great. The pattern is from Gooseberry Hill and is called the Sewing Bird. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see it. I have had this pattern for a long time, years in fact. I made one of these for Auntie when I first purchased the pattern. This is my second one.

This is just a wee bit of stashbusting. The fabrics are from stash, the tape measure is from stash and the notions I'm tucking under his wings are all from stash. I even used some glass-headed pins from my everyday pins for his eyes and beak. I did not buy a thing: I already had it.

I think my birdie is fatter.

  8. Paula, you are amazing. That you can even find time to make such sweet things while driving back and forth, caretaking and fending off both traffic and our comments is remarkable. Continuing to send caring thoughts for your auntie and your whole family!

  15. Hi Paula, what a neat gift that sewing bird makes *VBS* I think any one who sews or quilts would just love it!
    Thanks for sharing it with us. I have one older Gooseberry Hill book and I think he might be in there, I'll have to look. Any snow?? We got about 6" before the freezing rain hit. More snow coming tomorrow they say. Hugs, Finn
