Tiny birds

♥  Having finished my fairly mammoth first crochet adventure someone suggested that I had a look at a blog called Attic 24  Well, wow ! It was like sweety shop heaven for crochet addicts. 
 Since then I have followed Lucy's blog on a pretty much daily basis. I have loved following her tutorials as I find Lucy really explains things well.
                                      The first one I tried was her Birdie Decoration.

♥   Lucy has a very different style to me as all of her creations are so colourful and bright, whereas I have found myself always being drawn to the creamy, taupes and sandy shades, but this has been one of the things that I have really enjoyed when ever I have started a new project, as I love seeing how different things can look just by changing the colour combinations.
 So, my birds were very reserved in colour compared to Lucy's, but when I had completed a few they made the perfect addition to a garland I already had hanging in our TV room.

♥   When the windows are open and there's a bit of a breeze their little feet jingle!
                                        ♥ It has to be said I don't think it photo's very well -
                                          I promise it looks a lot better than this in real life!

 I am still loving this gorgeous sunshine every day but...

we still have one very hot cat..


and one very hot dog.
