So the weather has been appalling!! Winter seems determined not to leave, and it won't give spring a chance. We've had snow, heavy rain, icy winds and sub zero temperatures!!!
Despite this, i've been determined that Spring will finally battle it's way through, so i've gone back to the crochet, and have been growing the 'little flock of birdies'
A year ago I started to make crochet birds, as part of my learning, as circles were the first thing I learnt to make, and the circles just developed!
I chose some multi coloured yarn from my stash
and developed a fresh new birdie
by adding wooden buttons for eyes, coloured ribbon for a tail, and patterned ribbon for hanging...
the two birdies, past and present have come together
I have made some other varieties in the past, including a robin, a patriotic bird and a little purple bird
And have a couple of larger Mummy birds
Just a few more colourways that I want to try to complete this colourful flock...
