Birds and berries........

Here is a cute apron I got from a swap called "Winter in the Kitchen."

My grandmother's favorite bird was the cardinal so I was thrilled when I saw that little bird on this apron. Peppy would love it!




I made these for Pay It Forward....both have been received.

First, a little birdie brooch. This is the first one I've made and I like how it turned out. I want to make some more and use french knots and make them a bit more decorative. I want to play with the shape a little too.



This is the second pincushion I've made. I think it turned out pretty well.
