feather your nest

I know I've got quite a few other projects that need to be done but I can't help myself ! in the past week I've read on a few blogs about feather your nest which is a sew-along/contest to make items for your home being held over at Stumbles and Stitches.

Feather Your Nest with Stumbles & Stitches

During April there are guest posts and tutorials to make items especially for your home - there are requirements involved and one of them is that you have to use repurposed or upcycled material in your project.  Although the sew-along started on 2 April sign ups are open until 22 April so I figured I'd think about it.

Well, today I went to get some groceries and thought I'd just pop into the local charity thrift shop to see if I could find anything to use and found this fabulous top in lime green and 100% cotton so I'm signing up :)

and while I was at the shop I also found this wooden toast holder which will make a great small ruler holder - just what I need ...

and I also found this piece of carlton ware - apple blossom butter dish ♥ I'm hoping a little magnet will fit on the bottom so I can use it as a pin dish

now I just have to figure out what feather your nest project I'm going to make and I have just over a week to get it done - eeek !


  1. Nothing like putting yourself under pressure then Leanne?

  2. Great thrifty finds!! I've been wanting a toast rack for my rulers but they're becoming quite rare. Great idea to stick a magnet under the dish for your pins.

  3. gentle reminder you are on Monday...please post your time midnight ...till then..x

  4. Looks like you've got a busy weekend ahead of you - can't wait to see what you make!

  5. Hi Leanne! I'm so glad you joined us for Feather Your Nest. I just discovered your blog and your great projects. Can't wait to see what you make! :)
