I am having a bird thing today...everywhere I look I am seeing birds so I am wondering if thats the next spark of inspiration for some drawings! This gorgoeus wool felted bird perched on a twig came home with me in April from France, he was made by a very talented French artist Odile http://www.odilebailloeul.com/
This sweet hen is from the 'Nora'collection which is one of my favourite pillow series. I love the stitched fence which was done doing a long and short stitch, a bit fiddly but very effective. If your looking for a quicker result then the fence would look great done in felt.
The girls have been busy painting these cute little bird buttons and I cant decide if I like the blue ones or the red ones best. I named these birds Erin's birds after one of my daughter in laws.
There is a large selection of handpainted buttons in the range now, to see them all visit here
This sweet little blue bird is perched on top of the button from Fernhill (month 4).....can you guess what the button is? Leave us a message to win a package containing three of my new release patterns.
