Finished my feathers for Jude's Magic Feather project.
My initial feather has been completed with some stars - the feather is NZ colours and we have 4 stars on our flag.
And I wanted to make another piece with 2 feathers - which turned into 3. It represents me sheltering my boys.
My friend, Katherine, made one too - so lovely and soft. The feathery fabric is a very special piece left over from her mum's honeymoon nightie :-)
They will be lovely all together in a quilt
All going in the mail to Jude today.
