Bird Land


Hi everyone! 
Here are the little birds I mentioned in my last post.
They are so easy and fun to make. 
The best part was using supplies and scraps I already had. 




I haven't decided what to do with these little birdies yet, I just enjoyed making them.  I will probably just let them hang out in my craft room for future inspiration, or give them away or use them to embellish a gift.





I just love birds don't you?  
Just think of the possibilities!  You can use any color or embellishment to give your little bird his or her own personality. 

Yesterday, I noticed this Raven sitting on the house behind our home.  


I grabbed my zoom lens and shot this picture from our bedroom window.  Hopefully the neighbors in that house didn't look out and see me with my camera pointed directly at their house.  LOL! 
I see these Ravens every once in a while, and love to hear their "caw" sound.  I found this interesting link if you are interested, click HERE.

I wish we had some more interesting birds here in the desert, but most of the time I see and hear the English Sparrow.  I know there are more out there, but for now I will just have to "create" my own little birdies from scratch. :-)

Hope your week is off to a great start! 

Becca

What cute birds! You are so creative. I love the green one especially.
We are expecting snow and very cold weather here this week. I was hoping we'd seen the last of it, but I guess winter isn't over yet.

I wish you could see all the amazing birds here. I love ravens too...they have a really unique personality. Very smart!

Your sweet little birds are so delightful. Love the soft spring colors. Great stitching and textures. Enjoy for photography. With the change of seasons in Iowa you'd have great fun with the migration.

These sweet little crafty birds are adorable! So cute! Oh yes, I love the birds. I am afraid we don't have too many exciting and colorful birds either. Especially in the winter.

Happy Wednesday Becca!

These are fantastic Becca!
I absolutely love the pearl detail on the wing!

justine said...

these are so amazing, the colours and the textures, they would make a great mobile above a cot or something. Is that a mountain in the distance from your window? how wonderful to see that every day.

Tricia said...

They're so cuuute... definitely can be used for inspiration!

I love the relaxing music you have playing... Fantastic!!! =)

Tricia said...

I just have to add that I'm in love w/ the pic of your kitty, Shatzie, in the sidebar... the one below Fetzer & the lilies & above Little Becky... which that's a hoot, too, but Shatzie is ADORABLE!!! =)

What a cute flock you've created, Becca. Interesting stitches too, and I love their feet! We are supposed to get more snow tonight; this is getting old.....

Love the little birds you've created. And your Raven shot, that is the only bird I can get to "pose" for me.

ELK said...

the stitching and the colors are what makes them just so very charming.. birds are so special to create!!

Patty@sewingseeds said...

Those turned out adorable. I love all the little embellishments you used. Let me know if the neighbors start looking at you strangely! You are too funny.

Bohemian said...

How sweet your little birds are! I just adore your photography, you bring everything so alive with it! I'm working on becoming a better photographer now that I'm blogging and sharing my photos.

Thank you for your Anniversary wishes to us, we shall have a wonderful one... The Man will be choosing his gifts this week, very likely Hunting gear *winks* which is his particular passion and hobby. His eyes glaze over when we walk into a Cabelas in much the same as mine do when I go Treasure Hunting! *winks*

Blessings... Dawn... The Bohemian

Love your photo! You got a great shot! I am crazy about the little birds you are making, too! I sewed some tonight...but not sure about the results! I love making small projects! Wish I could look over your shoulder! Hugs! ♥

Ca c'est un point que je connais bien. Almost all my *broderies * I do with that stiich. You can see some on the blog * les tricots de Béatrice De, couture et bricolage *. Just le dérouler un peu. There are samples of imbroderies I had done on lillres felt boots (to put sweets in them) . Had sold them to a big store in London. But before, I had done samples for me, as souvenirs. Bright colors.
