Perching from the Blackbird Designs’ Mary Ann Blackburn booklet (Loose Feathers Spring 2012) – on 36ct Lakeside Linens Vintage Meadow Rue with the called for Classic Colorworks and GAST threads with one exception – I substituted the two leaves charted in GAST Toasted Barley with a brighter green DMC.  Finished into a pincushion filled with crushed walnut shells as a coordinating piece to go with the Spring’s Song box (also in the same booklet) shared in this post.

WIP Minders – I shared mine made from Cotton + Steel August fabrics, but I also made two more out of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  I used this tutorial to make them but used sew on snaps instead of the KAM snaps.  If I had to do it again, I would use the KAM.

I apologize for the emotional tangent I go off on in the video.  I briefly considered re-recording, but there was a lot of good stuff I hated to lose.  Thanks for hanging in there when I’m a hot mess.
