Artful Birds

Margie & I had a very birdie afternoon yesterday.
We both used the wren pattern from Abigail Glassenberg's new book
"The Artful Bird" published by Interweave.
I recycled my 2010 Linea Carta linen calendar to make my birdie.
Margie used a piece of turquoise cotton I had previously stamped
with one of my hand carved bird stamps and made the beaks with polymer clay.
We gave each of them our own twist & when they saw each other
they immediately fell in love ♥

These birds are lovely! I wish i was so crafty with a sewingmachine. Somehow my sewingmachine lives its own life and is giving me trouble all the time.But seeing these birds i'm willing to give it a try!

I like this so much, Geninne!

It reminds me of upcoming St. Gregory's Day.

Here we say that on that day birds propose to each other and it is considered as a lovers day (something like Valentine's).

There is also a tradition that we put little "ships" with lights (candles) on the water, symbolising the end of indoor work with lamps during winter, as days are getting longer at that time already.
