Love Birds

Well I finally got to take the picture of the Machine cover that I had made a couple of weeks ago at Sunday Stitching.  This sits on my mum's sewing machine, well one of her machine any how as a few months after making her the first one, mum upgraded her sewing machine only to suggest that she would also need a cover for her new machine!!!

The revamp has continued in my sewing room.  Many, many months ago I bought this big white frame from Ikea, always with the intention to fill it with some sort of birds to go with the birds in my Babushka Quilt hanging on my sewing room wall.  After the clean out I knew it was time to finally put something in the frame instead of continuing to trip over it.  So this is what I put together (mostly with the inspiration from Claire!).  The birds are simply machine stitched onto the fabric with a decorative stitch just inside from the edge and then I free hand quited the white background.  I love that my sewing room is now coming together as I had imagined it.

These Matryoshka Dolls are from Kristen Doran. I was lucky enough to meet this very talented lady earlier this year in Melbourne.  We share a love for variegated DMC thread and these dolls. 


Under construction this week is this pile of Christmas Fabrics which just arrived in the mail.  They are destined to be turned into an order for Christmas Aprons.
