The 52MMMC Week 8

Well hello to you all! I'm back again with another 'makes' post.
I have been meaning to make a larger version of my oval pin for a while now and thought it would be one of my 'makes' for the challenge, a good place to 'test' out ideas I feel.
I have also been promising my mum one for a while too.....

So inspired by this photo in a magazine recently I was ready to try my 'make'

I gathered together materials and threads that reflected the gorgeous colours of the heather

My mum likes my wee birds and so a wee bird the pin would have

stitch upon stitch

teeny tiny snippets of fabrics in lovely deep pinks and greens

And voila! a birdy pin has been made

My mum has received this wee pin and I shall wait for her to visit
with it donning her jacket lapel, before I show a 'finished' photo of it.
And *phew wipes sweat from brow* she loved it! x

That is so pretty, no wonder your mum loved it. Hope she has had a good birthday, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
