a bird on a limb

I just finished my Bird on a Limb pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap, and just in time! Tomorrow is the deadline. Phew!! The embroidery is my absolute favorite part, just LOVE how it turned out, with a simple clean look. When I saw the pattern on Etsy I knew it was perfect for my partner, and it was a lot of fun to stitch. The Joel Dewberry fabrics were perfect and looks as though they were made to go together! It's kind of funny as even my hubby is having a hard time giving this one up! :)


For shop news, I will be setting my shop on Vacation mode today till July, 6th. We are going to take some much needed family time. :)

Castle Peeps just arrived and Heather is giving away a fat quarter set from my shop in the Cardinal Red and Royal Blue collections. Make sure to stop by to enter! I'll be listing it in my shop once we re-open in July! So keep a watch out.

oh, isn't it just so cute!!


See ya soon!
