Flowers, Birds and Hearts

 Happy new week dear readers......back with some pretty fabrics, hearts, flowers and birds today.....
 ............some gorgeous fabrics from rose garden patchwork inspired another of my sweetheart pincushions......with a tag made from a strip of the selvedge.....
 ........a daisy button.............
 ............and some flower power pins from pincushion crazy on etsy.............
 ............the gorgeous atsuko atsuyama fabrics are by yuwa........
 .........also lately i've made some patchwork birds....these are made in lecien princess rose florals....
 ............i saved this charm pack for a while......the different colour ways are all pastel and pretty shabby chic florals and perfect for making a set of little spring patchwork birds....
 .............they can be styled with flowers, added to easter and spring wreaths or just sit on a shelf to brighten a corner.....the pattern for these is in my etsy shop (along with the sweetheart pincushion pattern) link in side bar.............
 .............i had a lovely treat this week when my younger daughter sent me some letterbox flowers from bloom and wild............
 ............such a lovely gift and a brilliant idea.....even if you're out your flowers are safely delivered....and carefully packed into a recyclable box which fits through the letter box.....
 ..............you put them in a vase with the flower food provided and they last ages and bloom more and more each day.............such a treat :).............
thank you for dropping by to see me here dear readers....it's always so lovely to hear from you and to read you kind comments......wishing you a happy week with flowers, sunshine and crafty inspirations..........back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Stunning post you have the most beatiful flowers. Your birds are so realistic such a lovely shape. You brighten up my Tuesday especially after this gloomy grey wet weather.
Have a lovely week Helen.

What a pretty pin cushions and adorable pins! I might have to order some of those. You have the coolest stuff! :-) Your daughter's bouquet is amazing and that it fits through the letterbox.. I'm never heard of that! Thank you for your email.. I don't know why your comments aren't going through as I haven't changed any settings.. but Blogger has a way of changing things w/o telling us. I hope it fixes it!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Helen, I hope you are having a few sunny warm days. Here, rain again. A very snow-less winter for us in Northern Virginia- the rural part, far west near the Blue Ridge mountains.
Please stay healthy and happy
I am at my daughters, (sleeping in her bed) while she is having baby #3
at the hospital.
Happy March. I just love looking at the pictures on your pages, always!!

The spring patchwork birds are adorable, I would put them in a spring wreath along with flowers and little hearts. Happy spring time crafting Helen. Tina xxx
