Birds 2

birds 2 I am very occupied with the little birds. In my yarn shop, I encountered a nice variegated yarn, suitable for a very small hook. I couldn’t resist the yarn and I made my firsts very little bird. My husband dislikes crows, with their black eyes. He thinks the crows are always looking at him. So I made him a little crow to hang on his bicycle. The crow turned out to be a very sweet birdie. On the picture You can see both birds flying together.

Fairy garden meeting


fairygarden ellenYesterday my Sister in law came to visit my family and she could admire my fairy garden and all it inhabitants. But to my surprise she also had her fairy garden with her. So the two of them meet. It was nice to talk about our hobby, and look at what I was making and brewing in my work basket. She also had a little surprise for me, the first little bird from my pattern. It is a very nice birdie.

Twisted robins

I am making robins, these days. I had ordered some new yarn, very soft cotton and much thicker than the yarn I normally use. Because I wanted to make some big robins. But it turned out wrong, the robin became a bit distorted. So I had to adjust the pattern a little bit. Now the pattern is alright and the last robin I made a looks more like a robin than ever. I haven’t made pictures yet, the robins are not totally ready. They miss the beak and eyes and toes. So you have to wait al little longer. I am also making a new zergy, he is also not complete. And al my other projects are waiting to be finished. I keep you informed.

Robin and so

Red Robin

Red Robin

All my robins have flew out to other families. I hope they will enjoy their new homes. There departure was due to a sale in my hometown. They will support a club of voluntary workers. They will use the money to buy and paint some wooden robins, that will lead the way in children’s path in a small forest in our town. I am glad the robins will be enjoyed.
