Sitting sewing felt

I love stitching on felt, it's so lovely to handle and also so forgiving of any sewing inaccuracies. 

I made a couple of little felt figures for the bottom of my Snowbound Quilt. This was a free BOM from lovely Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill.  I just received my quilt back from fabulous Leanne and I am absolutely thrilled with the result.

I decided to have a little forest at the bottom of my quilt and asked Leanne to quilt some trees -  she did an amazing job.  I also love the stars and snowflakes.  I'm hoping to have it bound and finished by the end of the week. I'll pop a picture on this blog when it's finished.

If you'd like to see more Snowbound quilts you can go to the Flickr stream HERE

 I also made another felt brooch and two more needle cases for the Kilmore Quilters' sale table.

And wonderful Fiona from Bubzrugz sent me the most adorable owl key chain as a present for participating in her Crazy Pin Cushion Sew Along.  She is just the best.

Today I'm linking in to 
Monday's Show and Tell with Sandy at Cookies and Cream Craft 
Makes me Happy Monday with Paula at Quilt Happy Quilt Often because sewing makes me very happy.

See you tomorrow for Tuesday Treasures.
