About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

Paper piecing a Witch pillow

Halloween Paper Pieced Blog Hop – Whims and Fancies on Craftsy, ends Nov 1st. http://www.flickr.com/groups/halloweenpaperpiecing/

QUILTDOODLEDDESIGNS  BY CINDY CREATED THIS PATTERN, HOP OVER TO HER BLOG AND CHECK OUT ALL HER PAPER PIECING. THIS PATTERN IS FREE. 



 Come Here My Little Sweetie 








 Fabric choices were alot of fun ~ !

I found it necessary to  buy some flat quilting pins ! 

 

For my first time ever PP, I chose a pattern with straight lines and used my rotary cutter to cut away bulk. 

Here is the hat the first section. The pattern is done in sections.  

Back stitching over the points and sewing a bit over the lines gave the hair straight crisp points. Use plenty of fabric here.  


Her face was fun to hand stitch, I added a wart ! and a fuzzy spider.


 I added some quilting. Zig-Zagged her hair  and a tight stitch on the hat.(This is the back.)

Meet My Tilda, I made a pillow . This was fun, I want to make another one !

Thank you Cindy from quiltdoodlesdesigns for sharing
I am going to post this on flicker so I might win the prizes ...

I JUST SAW MY NAME ON THE LIST FOR THE WICKED HOP ! PLEASE VISIT ALL THE OTHER PARTICIPATES ! I would like to thank Madame Samm and Wendy for organizing this blog hop.
