|Kirsty, the Duck, front|
This is one of those wip's that I've had for many, many years. At least 8! She is a pattern from the book The World of Whimble Whimsy by Martha Young. I bought the book in Atlanta at the actual Whimble shop and it was such a fun place!

I had forgotten all about her. As I was cleaning and organizing an old bin of fabric I found a little bag full of her pattern pieces and all the parts of her already cut out. It was quite the find for me so I decided right then to finish her up. I'm pleased that she is done and while she is by no means perfect, I do like her. Quite a lot. Perfect for spring!
Another fun thing I've been working on is a bunch these little bird potholders/hot pads. I think they are cute for the kitchen. The added bonus is how fun and easy they are to make!
I started by pulling some already cut scraps to see if I had enough for the front which I'm pleased to say that I did!
One blue bird quickly turned into five, each in its own color.
When the patchwork was completed I will admit that I was not so eager to go on to the next stages. But once I got the layers cut and stacked...
it was smooth sailing through the quilting and putting them together. That was the fun and easy part!
Before I knew it, I was outside on a sunny Sunday evening taking photos of these little birds.
I'm so addicted to making simple square patchworks. I have to come up with something else to do with the patchwork, though. I don't really think I need that many pot holders!
Linking up to Fabric Tuesday and Made by Me Wednesday!
Happy sewing! God bless!
