Freebie Friday: Gnome felt egg warmer

Happy Friday! Easter is just around the corner and I was having a look around for some easter crafting. I came across this super cute egg warmer from Calamity Jane's blog. With a few scraps and a bit of time you could whip up a few. I think it would be awesome to create a few, with different expressions... Hop on over to the tutorial here.

{made} feed the birdies stitchery

Hey there! I made this very sweet stitchery by Holly Wolfe. The little kit comes with a preprinted linen so it was super quick, I just threaded my needle and stitched away. The kit can be used to stretch over a canvas, but I popped it in a wooden hoop instead. I am a circle girl myself.

If you like this design, you can grab your very own kit here. Check out Holly's other designs too. They are pretty cute!

Tail Feathers Journey :: Block 3

Oh hi there! I didn't see you! How is your tail feathers journey going? I am still enjoying stitching up those little birdies I find once all the stitching is done, it only takes 15 minutes to sew the block together. I quite like the colours in  this one - I am partial to pink in case you hadn't noticed!

Errr, excuse me!?! What are you doing hanging out there? Mum, my block didn't line up properly... Shh, I snipped it off and called it 'shabby chic'!

Love to hear from you guys - Where are you up to on your blocks?

Missing out and want to start your tail feathers journey? Head on over to the shop to order your very own and join in the fun!
