Can you hear the birds chirping in the morning ?

Unfortunately, not yet!

Spring is not far away though!

So to make the wait shorter I decided to sew a pillow with a bird...

... chirping happilly on a tree branch...

... waiting, like me, for the first blooming flowers.

Wool Bird Appliqué Pillow
by : Maggi Bononomi (Pattern in Buttonwood Farm book)

I am very happy also with the fabric I chose for the back. It is a Japanese Yarn-Dye.

And you know what ? Maggi is coming to France and will give 3 workshops. Isn't it great ?

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you again for your lovely comments in my previous post.

Until later,


  1. Tout simplement superbe David, j'adore!

    Alors ici, on a vraiment l'impression que le Printemps arrive, le soleil brille et les températures sont très douces:-)
    Bien amicalement,

  3. Loveley cushion with the bird. I do hear a lot of birds already and it feels like spring here! I already worked in the garden a few times. I hope you will hear the birds soon. Your previous post was full of unbelievable beautiful items. That must have been a wonderful time you had there.

  4. Gorgeous cushion David and I am happy for you that Maggie is doing some workshops in France! The birds are all hiding here in their nests as the weather cools down as Autumn is here. Have a nice weekend and I also just loved the pictures in your last post! Ann

  5. Adorable ! Here in Burgundy, the birds are already chirping away in the garden :-) They sure enjoy the warm temperatures !

  6. Oh yes we can hear the birds chirping and the blossom is out!! Your bird is gorgeous, love it, the backing is fabulous.
    Maggie's workshops must be a delight to attend!

  10. Beautiful work David! This pattern is on my to-do list. I just love Maggie!!

    Your work is inspiring!


  11. It looks beautiful!

    I've started to hear the birds early in the morning - some new ones that I've never heard before - they call out to each other - the male with a lower call and the female with a higher one in answer to him. I don't know what they are as I've never heard them before, but I know that they're a sign of Spring.

  12. Great wool pillow... enjoy your Maggie workshops.

  13. Love that Maggie pattern! I've been wanting to make it but haven't got around to it!
