The blue tit was almost dry
(he isn't that big,
just a wee bit bigger than his natural size)
So the last bit I needed to do
was make his eyes.
Because he is so small
I needed only a few fibres of black and white wool
a felting needle
(auch, be careful : felting needles are incredibly sharp !)
He sat quietly on my hand
he wasn't even afraid
of the cat !!!
Though I have put him somewhere safe,
because Bella likes to play with all kinds of soft small things
