Bye Bye Birdie!

This was hard. How do you pack such delicate little birds without them being crushed? I did the best I could, tried to pack the tissue around them so they'd keep their shape all for their journey to Shop Handmade ( in store today ).
I didn't have time to make as many as I wanted for the first shipment as we've had visitors for the past three days, which was a nice change I have to say!
 I'm planning on a few more after Easter and before Mother's Day.
 Have you dropped a few hints for Mother's Day yet? Apart from wanting something fluffy to keep my feet warm all I want is time.........time to sit in front of my sewing machine and maybe sew something for myself, or start on a new quilt ( I have a new fabric stash I'm dying to play with ). There wouldn't be any cleaning up, cooking, washing or refereeing a battle between the kids.......just time for mum! Ahhhhhh I'm already excited!

 But for now it's back to reality, a mountain of washing on a rainy day, a house which is desperate need of a vacuum and some pear orders to get started on.
 Once all the pears are done it's back to birds.
The lovely Bethany thinks that a yellow bird would look good and I'd have to agree, so I might give it a go when I have time. What colours would you like to see?
Sorry for the picture overload, they are all so cute and I had to share them all.
One can never have enough cuteness around.
Thanks for stopping by.

That shot of them in their box is rustic and gorgeous. Such sweet little birds. I'm sure they will fly out the door.
