Birds/Dawn by Stephanie.

I was really pressed for time this month and couldn't explore either of the ideas which I initially came up with - but at least it was nice to be inspired in the first place!
I used chickens/hens/eggs as my theme and created a quick, practical item which I have actually required for some time - a doorstop for my sewing room.

Wadding was used as the template

Gingham was stitched around this, along with an appliqued patch. Then I added felt details.

Both sides are identical. They were over-stitched together and the piece was stuffed with buckwheat. Here she is in situ, doing a lovely job : )

To complete the theme, I made these cute little egg-cosies.
