A Little Sunshine In My Day!

I've had so much fun over the past few days. Working diligently on this little lion pillow for sweet Allison.

When she asked me to create this little guy I wasn't sure where this adventure was going to take me. Pleasantly surprised I found myself getting so wrapped up in all the little details. Look at those whiskers. This little lion couldn't hurt a fly. I nick-named him Sunshine (Sunny for short).

I'm sad he's leaving my workroom, but happy he's making his way home to Seamus. I hope someday soon I hear the story of him snuggling up to his sweet little pillow.

Girls In My Garden

There are some girls in my garden... at least for a brief moment. I spent the entire week working on these beauties while the kids were off at day camp. So sweet. I have a hard time parting with them. Sometimes I wish I were 5 again. Just to sit and play with them all day!
Not sure what's next. I think i'm moving on to felt flower pins. I love felt.

Fly Home Little Birdie!

This was a custom pillow created just for baby Aaren... love that name! His mommy sent me the sweetest pictures of his nursey. All different shades of blues and yellows and yummy greens.

This little birdie was just about to take flight. Once I had him laid out and pressed, that's when the real magic happened. The stitching is very time consuming, but watching this bird come to life is so much fun!

I can't wait to see what his mommy Stacy thinks! I hope she loves it as much as I do! Fly home little Birdie!
