For March’s UFO challenge I decided to push the boat out and try to finish two things. Ambitious or what!
The first UFO I’ve decided to do is a kit by Kathleen Laurel Sage which I had started last year. Like last months UFO (just here) I haven’t really got too much to do but I can remember that it got put away because I was nervous of ruining it by doing the ‘next step’ which involved a soldering iron and burning holes into the fabric.
This is it at the moment,
I’m still a bit nervous about working on it but as I’ve told you all about it I’ve got to do it now – right ;).
The second UFO was a lot less scary. Last year I made a couple of shabby chic birds which my daughter used to decorate her wedding cake. At around that time I decided to make myself a couple of birds too. I got them cut out and half sewn up before they were abandoned, put into a plastic bag and disappeared out of sight and out of mind.
I was reminded of them because at my local quilter’s group this month we made Easter garlands and I thought they looked like little nests. I thought, ‘I need some birds for my nest,’ and so this week I got on with them.
Here they are ready to decorate my home for Easter.
The ‘nest’ is made by knotting strips of organza round a wooden curtain ring until you can’t see the ring any more. I glued a circular piece of cardboard on the base of mine to turn it into a nest.
What’s a nest if it doesn’t have any eggs in it!
Phew one more UFO done! I’d better get on with the other one now!
Until next time,
