one finished wisp

what is a wisp i hear you ask? well i only found out a few weeks ago, thanks to kris who is holding a 'a project a month challenge', that a wisp is a Work In Slow Progress. i have decided that it is easier to do all my pinning and cutting of fabric at night with the hopes of stitching during the day when the rug rats are not annoying me. this seems to have worked as i have completed one of the wisps that i cut out last night!!
here they are, my wisps, cut, pinned and buttons waiting to be chosen.
i managed to stitch today while the girls played in the back yard. i took the photos at night so the lighting isn't great but the fabric is just so pretty. it is a sweet heart in shades of blue and brown filled with stuffing and a hint of lavender, it smells so sweet. i am really happy with it.
now all i have to do is finish the birds...the only problem is i start work on wednesday so i wont be doing much blogging or stitching for a while but i guess thats why they are called wisps!!
i will be back with a post about annabelle my latest bird.

I flip out over anything to do with buttons, I just bought a great book full of button craft, I'll post about it soon. You are so talented Rosey, I can see this blog will be bursting at the seams with all your creations in no time.
