Birds and Dolls

How has your week been so far? Good I hope.
It's been a busy week here.
The usual working and visiting my Grandad in north east Yorkshire.
It's about 4 hours away from where we live in north wales luckily my daughter has always been good on long journeys.
Always nice to get away for a few days.
This week crochet wise I have jumped on the Attic 24 band wagon and hooked up five bower birds.
You can find the pattern here
They hook up a treat with clear and well written instructions.
I really enjoyed the stitching parts where I could personalise each birdie and give it, it's own character.
I wanted to show you my mantel piece because its made me smile this week having not one but two vases of flowers and my new dolls.
The nesting dolls were a bit of an extravagance for me, especially when I'm supposed to be paying for a wedding.
I do love them.
So you may have just seen that I mentioned the wedding eek its getting close now!
Just over 2 weeks.
So if I do go quiet you will know what I'm doing. I'm hoping to keep up with things.
I will leave you with these chirpers!
Have a lovely weekend.
