Thankyou Lisa

In this months homespun magazine there is a fantastic jar cover project by the very talented Lisa over at Cubby House crafts. As soon as I saw these I had to make one, not only because I love them but because I really like Lisa and her blog is full of beautiful projects and inspiration. So here is my version of Lisa's jar covers.

Stitched on linen which I really like to work with, don't look too close at my scalloped edge, that was tricky for me but I'll keep practising until I get it right.



The lady bird won me over, she is so cute. I have traced the other design for another jar cover so today I'm going to start stitching that.

I have a week off from work which I am really enjoying, I have done a few of those jobs that I keep putting off like cleaning the oven. Now I can sit back, relax and get stitching.
Thanks Lisa for such a pretty project.
