Lovey Dovey Birdies.

Well Sunday has rolled around again and this weeks makes consist of some love birds. Here they are waiting patiently for me to finish them.



The back with their little cute red buttons. The two on the right are made from linen and love heart red fabric. They are for my d.i.l. and the other two are calico and left over material from my red quilt so they are destined for my bedroom.


Just hanging around.....

Hmmm maybe they need something a little bit extra.....
So now they have a beak full of hearts instead of worms!

I finally finished the cushion with an extra monogram for d.i.l and son

                                             Finished cushion, it does look like there is an abstract line running through the middle but the patchwork is padded out and is part of the quilted look that I've sewn onto it.

Back to finishing off a field of cactus/cacti that I'm making. So cheerio till next week.

Will be putting this on these linky parties:

  2. The birds are beautiful, well done. The red fabric looks so lovely with the linen and i love the way you used the buttons on their backs with the ribbon . Cushion is gorgeous too and the monograms make it so personal.
