little birdies

You might think I have a thing for birdies…. and you may be right. I like them ’cause they are cute! I recently made this little birdie as a gift:

He was quick to make- I got the Joel Dewberry pattern from here and used some fabrics in a favourite combination of blues and browns.
He can be used as a pincushion or could even be filled with pot pourri if you wish.

He has a cute little face!

A new little birdie to our home is this little ceramic birdie given to me by a friend:

I think he might fulfil a greeting role at our front door:

He looks quite nice with the azalea, don’t you think?!

And just to show a few other birdies around the house which have been kindly given to me:

and of course, this blog’s mascot, which I also made:
