Free motion Embroidery Pillows

I tried free motion embroidery about a year ago and gave up, frustrated! Last week I tried again and WOW, it was working!!! I need lots more practice, but this opens the doors to so many new ideas!
I do have an embroidery machine, but the free motion has a totally different feeling and look to it and is for some projects more appropriate.

The pattern for the birdies is from the book Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart and the idea for the nest is from Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray.

The idea to use birds came from the existing fabric panels that we have in the living room. The tree fabric is from Ikea. The sleeping monstrum in the coconut chair, is our Lucy who owns her own cat pillow.
