Yes It’s happened – I am now half a century old..never mind!!
My special mate Tracy surprised me with a workshop birthday present. We have been learning about quilting these past few months and both fancy trying free-hand embroidery on the machine. So my birthday prezzie was for us both to go to a workshop at Frank Nutt in Kings Heath, Birmingham. I bought my last sewing machine from there and didn’t even know they had workshops upstairs.
First up was the branches using the free motion – Woohoo that was fun to do!!!
Then we appliquéd the Robin – which we have done before and enjoy.
Then we hand stitched the berries, beak and feet and sewed on the eye bead.
Finally we attached it to the back using blanket stitch.
Hey presto – 2 little robins for our homes……. thanks Tracy I loved my birthday prezzie.
