Here they are - I couldn't wait for the hummingbirds to return so I made one of my own - it's the ruby throat hummingbird, which is the one that visits yearly in our neck of the woods. And to keep it company there's a chickadee who is with us year round. ^^ The patterns are available here .... I made mine the same on both sides - does that mean they are 3D?.
Mother Nature surprised us yesterday afternoon with a few inches (it was ankle deep) of fresh snow - there's more snow this morning than there was a month ago; however, with double digit temps forecast for the rest of the week it will soon be a bad memory. Here's a pic of Little Dog surveying her yard and possibly wondering just what happened.
There's been some fresh snow, alas, but I'm still in the mood for spring ... and after all "winter always turns to spring" according to Buddha. Sometimes winter just doesn't know when to leave.
This is my 3D pinwheel table mat - I love 3D blocks! I used an old damask napkin for the white squares - fortunately, a stain was strategically placed so that I could cut around it. ^^ In the jug you can see a few pussy willows and my fake faux flowering almond - I crocheted tiny blossoms and attached them to some branches.
A Spring heart from Gazette 94. I love ladybugs! ^^
Spring has arrived - in person and by the calendar and I'm lovin' it.... we've already picked our first pussy willows of the year!
To celebrate this wonderful season I have a few new 'makes' to share and since I couldn't decide which ones to post you're seeing all of them. ^^
Blogger is supposed to send your comments to my inbox - but recently it's been negligent. I enjoy your comments and ask you to keep in mind that if I do not reply it's because you are a 'no reply' blogger or blogger hasn't sent your comment to me. For me, it's bad manners to not reply to you but some things are out of my control. :(
March has arrived, the days are longer, the sun is shining again, and it feels like spring could be just around the corner!
This is my French vintage cushion cover .....
using a graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I ironed some freezer paper to a piece of ivory Kona , trimmed it to 8½x11, and printed the graphic directly onto the fabric. After removing the freezer paper I soaked the printed fabric in some vinegar for a few minutes (and no ink ran), dried it, pressed it, and began sewing with dropcloth. How easy is that!?!?!?!
And speaking of vintage ........ hmm, looks like it was wash day. ^^
Do you remember the bouquet of fabric that I posted about here - well, here it is in all it's beauty pressed and folded for you to see ....
