I also love that I finally decided what to make out of my little 'whimsy bird with wonky flying geese' that I stitched a long time ago. I have a friend from work who needs a little cheering up plus it is her 40th Birthday on Saturday so this gave me the idea that I could make her a little zippy pouch to hold a gift card to her favourite store.
|Pale blue linen - yum!|
I hope she likes it! I love the bright pink zipper in contrast with the icy pale blue linen. For some reason I really struggled with the zipper this time and must admit it is not my best work. But hey - it zips open and it zips closed so that is enough 'perfection' for me! Here is the back - I did some free motion flowers using four different colours of Aurifil thread. I think I love the back as much as the front! Quite whimsical and feminine I think.

So there you have it - I made a zippy pouch with some happy flowers and a happy soaring bird flying high above the mountains. Yay!
And yay again - a completed 'Lovely Year of Finishes' project :) Here is my original goal setting post.
I MISSED THE LINK UP!! Boo to me for being silly thinking I could link up on the 1st of June. Oh well. But good news - this is one of my seven 2nd Quarter Goals with She Can Quilt.
