Birds and hearts...

 Worked on these little felt bird pins last night. They have been patiently sitting in my sewing basket awaiting the time when I would get their beaks embroidered.

 
 This is the first set of birds I made...different way of doing the wings.
Now I need to put the pin backs on and they will be ready for the next craft show.

 

This winged heart is rug hooked and embellished with little felt shapes but sort of has a patchwork look.


And one more woven cloth sample. This is called "attached weaving". I got into my linen fabric stash for this one and went for a subtle look.
