the bird motif seems to be a very popular one, and one that I normally avoid. But it seemed appropriate for christmas.
I decided to steer away from felt for this one. Ideally I'd like to be using more vintage fabrics, but my stash is a little depleted. So vintage silk wings (one of my favouritest fabrics courtesy of mel) teamed here with striped cotton that was originally intented to become 3/4 pants for miss bella. Not finished yet, but I mainly wanted to test out the hand applique stitch that I recently saw demonstated on a daytime quilting show (very sad, I know..but these nanna's have a lot of skills to teach!)
I have a bunch of ideas fliting around in my head, so hopefully there will be loads more to come.
