'Birdies and Bows'.

Hi Everyone!
Middle of the week Wednesday.

I'm off to the hairdressers this morning so I'm typing this the night before so I can post in the morning before I go.I shall be in there nearly three hours having a perm.I do hate sitting around all that time but it's only every three months. It gives me a break from the computer and.......? You all know what this is?

Talking of ? I've been making a 'Birdie Garland'. It was easy to do just those adorable Birdies a bit of stuffing,a few buttons and some yarn. What could be so simple? Oh! I forgot just a bit of ribbon I had spare. The ropey bit was just three colours of wool chained and threaded through the hole in the middle of the body. I thought the ribbon finished it off.

Five Birds flying high!

I've been carrying it around trying to get the best shot. The light has been pretty tricky even with the flash on.

Out into the Garden too.

Birdies flying free in the Garden.

Karin, has offered a home for the Birdies if they want to fly over to the Netherlands, she has the most beautiful Birdie House in her Garden. Thank you Karin! Let's see how long they want to stop in the UK for! They might want a change of scenery you never know.

These Birdies are still ever so popular and are still flying all around the world. Perhaps they will meet up one day!
