My first two finishes for 2015!

I've been having fun making my little stitcheries into projects. These two stitcheries are from 
Jenny of Elefantz' Stitchery Club.
 I made my little bird on a cotton reel into a sewing pouch. 
The bird is from Month 3 of the Club.
 I even made a pocket with half of a little doily 
I picked up at an op shop last year.
 The colours in the stitching matched perfectly with the fabrics. You can see the little French knots now. 
I think they were a bit too small in my earlier post.
 Then I stitched this heart from Month 2 of the Club 
and made it into a little wall hanging.
The fabric range I used is Avalon. Isn't it lovely!
These are the fabrics in my FQS BOM quilt.

Only two more days and we get our next set of stitcheries from Jenny. I think there may still be time to sign up here.
 Speaking of Jenny. I have been very remiss and haven't publicly said thank you for this sweet Stitcher's Friend needle case that Jenny sent me before Christmas.
 Thank you so much, Jenny!
