Birthday gifts

 March has seen me really busy sewing for swaps and birthday gifts, here are gifts I made for our on line stitching birthday swap. My partner was Teresa and she likes pink and pretty colours, our challenge was to take a friendship saying and turn it onto a project, I came up with a dresden pate wall hanging and stitched the saying it the middle. I think it turned out OK
 I also made 2 cute little pin cushions and a pieced mug rug.
 I really enjoyed making some little things for a change. Glad you liked them Teresa.
While I was in the garden taking photos of these projects there were bumble bees every where so I got a great shot of one going from flower to flower.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Hope you find some sewing time.

Hi Leanne,
What a lovely selection of colours you have used for Teresa. It looks gorgeous. Great photo of the flower and bee, now I had tried to take that photo it would just be a blob!!! lol. Love the colour of the flower too.
Cheers, Anita.

Hi Leanne love the colours you have used in the dresden plate. Your garden must be full of beautiful flowers atracting the bees. :)
