Feather Your Nest

Do you read the wonderful blog, Stumbles & Stitches?  Jenny and Angel are hosting a fun contest in honor of Earth day and to encourage us all to create something for our homes while re purposing supplies we already have! 

When I first heard of the idea, I immediately thought about that old quilt I bought a few months back that I planned to make Christmas stockings with...well, I gave it a test run this morning. 

I used the free pattern by Denyse Schmidt that can be found HERE .  I enlarged the pattern 150% but it is still a rather small stocking...and I forgot to add a tab for, good thing it's a large quilt it may take me a few tries before I get 4 nice ones for Christmas 2012! 

And I ran to my LQS yesterday to buy fabric for the ballet quilt's binding and Hugo wouldn't leave without fabric for a new pillow.
 We took the cover off this very unfortunate pillow and whipped up a new skull and crossbones pillow for Hugo's bed. 
So be sure to stop by Jenny and Angel's blog and get some great ideas on how you might feather your own nest!


  1. That's the sweetest pirate ever!
    Love your stocking, too. Great idea on how to display a pretty cutter quilt.

  2. Hey Look! There's Hugo -- looking cute as ever! (He needs to model those cool green boots for the blog!) Your stocking looks good from here -- very cute!
