Pinecones and A Little Bitty Finish

The girls collected some pinecones from the back the other day and made some peanut butter birdseed feeders to hang on the trees. I read them a book, Francis The Poor Man of Assisi by Tomie De Paola and thought our little craft would be appropriate.

I started this little embroidery project a couple years ago and did indeed finish the embroidery, just never put the mini quilt together. It's certainly on my 'to-do' list. When I began the project it was a free BOM, but now I see there is a small charge. You can find it here.

Goodness, what a blurry picture. Sorry about that. This is a little scissor fob my daughter made several years ago when she was about 12 or so. I found it the other night in a box and decided to do the finishing on it. It's very sweet and more so because it was the work of her hands. It's called Lady Bug Scissor Fob by Lorri Birmingham Designs.

what a wonderful idea for feeders for the birds, with winter upon us they must be looking for food.
That fob is a cute finish! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hey there!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. And yes, you are right, you sure can tell the kids are brother and sister.
Can't wait to see your BOM's turned into a quilt. You have such patience to do such beautiful handwork.
Let me know how you and the fam are doing.

Super cute finish! I love the pinecone idea--I remember doing that when I was a kid. St. Francis of Assisi is one of 'my' guys--what a nice way to honor him.
