This is a little project I started many months ago and then abandoned. I zig zagged on the fabric strips and outlined a robin in free motion machine stitch. I think the tension was wrong and I was unhappy with the robin so the project was tossed aside. Then a few days ago I saw cute little free motion daisies on
Garden Clippings lovely blog, and decided to give it another try. I dug it out of the great heap of abandoned projects and started adding free motion flowers and raindrops. I couldn't resist adding some little French knot flowers as well. Do they make it a little too busy? Last I painted in the robin outline. In retrospect I think I should have painted the bird first and stitched around him, but overall I'm happy with the results. He is my cheerful reminder that spring will really arrive. Hope you have signs of spring in your little corner of the world.
