I submitted my little bird house to the Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine "Home Sweet Home" challenge.  I recently heard that it was picked as a finalist.  I sent it in and am hoping that it will be among those selected to be published in the magazine.

This birdhouse measures  2.5" wide x 3.5" high x 2" deep - tiny, tiny!  I chose to construct it using silk, felt, beads, buttons, sequins,  miscellaneous hardware, paint, molding paste.  It is machine embroidered, free motion quilted and hand stitched.



Go to Pink Saturday for more inspiration!
