Little Stitches Handwork Club

"Folk Bird Needlebook"
design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm 
for the Little Stitches Handwork Club

I'm so happy to have a finish to share this weekend.
This was the club kit for January/February/March.
I fell in love with this robin the moment I saw him.
I decided that he needed a little wing, so I added one made of wool. I added a piece of cream wool underneath as a place to keep my needles.
It reminded me of George, my pet parrot that I had in high school. He would love to hold his wings up and have me scratch his white wing pits :)

I loved the blue robins eggs on the inside and decided to add a wool robin as well. 
He is happy to hold my scissors under his wing :)

And on the back I added a simple wool heart.

I better get going on the club kit for April/May/June as July will soon be here!

And I just had an awesome weekend filled with lots of stitching goodness!
I'll be back soon to share...

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."

I like the way the wing lifts for the needle storage. I wonder if she sells the pattern separate from a club.
