Ten days into the new "better, healthier" year
and no sign of relaxation of the Corona (Covid) measures
pffffft . . . so be it.
In the Stitch Club
we just go on stitching !
Mandy Pattullo's "bird-workshop" was loved by many !
In my head is still a to-do-list
of more birds.
(and I will be counting birds in the garden
for the national bird-count, two weekends from now !)
But there were two more birds already,
one of them my all time favorite wish-bird :
the kingfisher !
Years ago, when we just moved to this place,
I saw a bright blue flash on the other side of the water
that runs along our garden :
that could only mean one thing, a kingfisher.
(usually not a bird that's often seen here in the west,
more so in the east of our country near streams with high sandy banks)
On internet are lots and lots of wonderful pictures of birds,
easy enough to get a good look at them.
for this one I used a bigger size background than the robin(s)
and the crested tit,
20 x 30 cm (+seams)
all the tiny snippets in place.
So . . .
there will be more birds in the future
