my little birdhouse fairy is finished and her basket is full of love to share. I have to admit that one good thing about all this wet weather is that it's perfect for stitching.
I've used quite delicate colours on a natural linen that I got from frumble. I love working on linen but the colours are all much more subtle, not the easiest to photograph! Especially on these grey wet days.
She is going to be the centre panel on a cushion just as soon as I can make my mind up about fabric! The pattern is available over in my Etsy shop.
I have started on the design for the toothfairy cushions. I'm thinking of making them as kits too. I loved making my daughter a toothfairy cushion (all that time ago when she was only six!!).
Here I've stitched her entirely in a single strand because I like the delicacy you get from one strand, closer to a drawing. Linen again, I'm not sure whether to back the cushion with a print and a felt heart pocket or more linen and a print pocket...
This rainy weather is clearly good for my work ethic even if it's not very nice for walking a whippet. We sneak out in a moment of dry and usually get soaked through before we get home again!
Maybe I can trick one of the children into walking him today and get on with some more sewing...
