Five Little Robins
I wanted to show you my robin brooches I have finished this weekend. I'm really pleased with how they have turned out.
They're so cute aren't they!? They just look gorgeous on my tree...
...and I'm going to be a bit sorry to part with them, but I must as I want to pay for that Debbie Bliss Andes yarn that I showed you all in my last post. Thank you so much for so many lovely comments and advice regarding the proposed scarf. It was quite unanimous that I should make the scarf. It would be quite different to Lucy's, well shorter anyway, as I only have 5 skeins and she used 9! I'm wondering if I could adapt the pattern to make a cowl as I love the flowers but have wanted to make a cowl for a while now.
I have also made a couple of other birds which I plan to list in my folksy shop soon.
And I've experimented with another little brooch. For a first attempt it's not bad but I think it needs a slightly longer neck!
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. It's half-term break here so I'm looking forward to some craft catch-up time!
