I have been busting my little (!!!?!!?!!) buns LOL trying to finish this in between other life complications and finally did it…..woohoooooo!!!!
It took a little longer than I had expected, winding and winding and winding…..Dawn told me it took her 6 hours and boy, she was not exaggerating!!!! But, I do believe it was very well worth the couple of hot glue gun burns (I think I learnt after the second one!!!!…I AM a bit of a slow learner!!!! )…What do you think??
Do you think it looks anything like this one?….
(taken from the Homespun magazine)
…which was our original inspiration. (Thanks Sarah!!)
Jenny and I spent such a wonderful day together and we both made such different designs but, I think, equally as beautiful!
We discussed the idea of having a little thank you gift for all the people who participated in our challenge of the birdcage sew-in, and Jenny just happened to have a lovely “Lovebirds” stitchery pattern which she made into this…
which we are offering to all those who participated in the challenge. All you have to do is email either of us photos (you can click on my profile button to get my email addy) by Thursday 7th October, so we can share the love….birds!!!!
Poor Jessica had a machine meltdown, so couldn’t make birdy softies, so instead asked if she could still participate with a stitchery…..here is what she came up with.. very cleverly designed by herself!…
Notice the colouring technique!?? I can’t wait to see what these become!!
Don’t forget, photos to us by Thursday 7th October to be eligible for your gift of Lovebirds.. (designed exclusively for you by Jenny)
We will send these out to you on Friday 8th October.
Have a magnificent weekend and may your cages be always filled with beautiful singing birds!
