Let's look at your birds!

Today I can show you some of fabulous 'birds in cages' that participants in the Birdcage Weekend Sew-In have made!
Sue allowed her birds out of their cages for a while to enjoy a birdbath...
Amanda made her birds from polymer clay and put them inside tiny cages!
Katrin also bought her cage and filled it with sweet handmade birds...
Brigitte has had her birdcage for a while but was finally able to fill it when she made these pretty birds...
Fiona used felted wool for her birds!
Judith hasn't yet found a birdcage she likes for her bird, but what a pretty bird it is! I think this 'posh' bird may need quite a fancy home, don't you?
You have another week to email me (or Wendy) the photos of your birds in birdcages - Thursday 7th October is the last day. I have a beautiful new design (see photos below) that I will email to all those who participated, but only if you send me your photos before next Thursday.
This is my new 'Lovebirds' wallhanging. I'm sure you'll enjoy stitching this!
Wendy and I will email the patterns out to all those entitled on Friday 8th October.
If you haven't participated in the Birdcage Sew-In, but would still like this pattern you can purchase it for
the special price of $3 HERE in my Etsy Shop until Friday October 8th.
I'm moving forward in the world of the internet (thanks for the push, Fee!) , and now have my own web page! You can find my blog at the NEW web address -
But do not worry if you forget it, you can still find me through this blog address and it will simply redirect you to my new web page.
