menagerie

I've been doing quite a bit of crafting this week - some for swaps and some for me..and some just because I can!!
I tore this out of a magazine last summer and it sat on a pile of papers until the other week when I rummaged through and thought 'I could do something like that'....
So I drew a shape freehand (gulp - I can't even draw a stick man!) And had an experiment...
It only took 2 goes for me to be happy, here's the 1st one I made...

I tweaked it and made a few more....

This one is made from my favourite tshirt the baby wore last summer, I was going to keep it but thought it would be nicer to keep in bird form!!
A couple are winging their way(!!) up country to special people, and I thought I'd make some more as easter gifts - instead of chocolate...

Its the weekend again...2 weeks since we got married...Mothers Day weekend...as my new husband is decorating I don't suppose we will get far or anywhere nice.... (he is decorating the last room to be done in our house - shall I wait a while before I tell him the first rooms we did desperately need a freshen up???)

This box of goodies was posted to my mum, she has it safely, and is being very good and not opening until Sunday. I have got her the LarkRise series 1 DVD - she never watched it and I know she'd like to, and a few little pretty bits.

Thank You so much for all your comments..I am not making it back to all of you at the minute...but I am trying. XxX

You have been a busy bee Mrs Dollop. The birds look great, they're something I keep meaning to try but haven't got round to yet and a lovely idea making one from the babies t-shirt. I started a cushion a while ago with Jacks baby clothes.....must finish lol!

Have a good weekend

Aren't they sweet? I love the idea of making one from your little ones' clothes, I have given so many things away that I loved.
