Some new finishes to share


This weekend I started a few new projects and these are the finishes. My April pinkeep is one with a fun theme ~ the kids rhyme 'Rain, rain go away; Come again another day'. I love the backing fabric which is from the Aunt Grace series of 1930s quilt fabrics.
I also made two wool felt hedgehog pincushions. Meet Napoleon (left) and Harry (right)! Harry is going to live with an online friend. Napoleon is living here with me as he was the first one I made. My husband gave him his name quite by accident. He asked me why I was making Napoleon's hat when I was starting to sew it together. The name stuck!

Heidi,
Is there no end to your talent? I love your hedgehogs and the names seem just perfect for them somehow.
The latest pinkeep is a cute one.
Looking forward to more of your wool felt creations :)
