Watch the birdy
Recently, I have been truly grateful for my twenty minutes of craftiness a day. Work has been very stressful, so it's been lovely to escape my troubles by getting out my hook, wooden spoon or felt tips (I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I have bought my own pack, which Little People have been banned from using, they have their own!).
This week, I decided to take a (short) break from my granny squares and do something else. I went over to Attic 24 and was inspired by this cute little bird tutorial. I sort of followed it, and I'm almost there. I couldn't figure out the instructions for the beak or wings, so I made up my own version. I'm planning to stuff my birdy with lavender, I have my eye on some from Provence. I'll post a picture of him again when he's finished. In the meantime, here's his better side!
