Tweet Tweet!

I had a fairly quiet day of productive sewing yesterday!

I'm working on a birdie cushion for my sister's birthday ....

paper pieced birdies

I found this free paper pieced pattern on McCall', and each bird currently stands at 5" x 6".

And I got a Pippi finished for Bee Blessed:

Pippi Longstocking Block for Bee Blessed Feb14

As well as getting a few more French General Grannies finished, by 8pm I couldn't resist cutting into a Scrumptious Layer Cake with my Half Hexie ruler!  Less than an hour later I had this ...

Half Hexie Scrumptuous Quilt
Yes that is sunshine coming through the window!
This quilt will be a present for my friend who is having a significant birthday (wink wink) in May!

And this morning my back is reminding me of what a fun and productive sewing day I had yesterday!!

Happy Monday!
