I've been buying wool felt again and had to make some bird houses as the felt was so luscious and thick and I love them all to bits!  It took me a little while of tweaking to get the pattern right as didn't want them too big but didn't want them ridiculously small either.  For some reason I was on a mission and HAD to finish at least one last night.  I also decided that it was a fabulously good idea to hand stitch everything together rather than needle felt it for some reason...I don't know, it's not even if I had been drinking as had a bad headache all day that would not desist no matter what I took or how much fluid I took in or the numerous attempts at napping that I made.  I couldn't nap, I was too wired with the thought of bird boxes.  Gosh.  There's no hope for me is there?

Onto the goodies, I chose the most bright and spring like colours I could find and mixed them all up, well, a bird has got to have a fabulous home hasn't she?  Hey, just be grateful I didn't cover everything with sequins!!!

I think I might move in...

Oooh, which one to choose?

I'm torn between putting them in the shop and keeping them for the stall as I've only got a limited number, the felt is expensive and I don't know how well they will sell, and didn't want to make a hoard of them if they're non sellers.  Hmmm...*scratches head* I think I'll put them on the shop and if I sell out all well and good really!  Finger's and toes crossed people!  Thanks! ;)
