Made this pincushion for a swap all the way back in 2008 for ImSewSilly, and never posted it! She liked blues, browns and birds. Took a few goofs to get this one done right.

A bird on a nest with 2 eggs, in a crystal bowl. The only thing I did not make is the bowl. It is made from felt and flannel fabrics, all stuffed with fiber fill.

Always thought of making another one for myself, cause I liked the bird so much.
Thanks for looking. Smiley

That is so sweet, HSG! What a wonderful spring-time project. I'm not sure if I could stick pins in this cutie though Smiley.

That is really pretty!  I'd probably not want to poke it with pins!
