Blackbird in a tree

Another busy busy day. Packing, cleaning, tidying and last minute shopping all in preparation of leaving for England and coming back again to a nice space.

My daughter designed the above tree for my Mum. I confess that once she had made the pattern, cut out the felt, cut out the bird and apples, stuck them on and sewn on the bird's bead-y eye, all of that all by herself, well she was out of steam. So I ended up sewing it together. But we still feel that it is her creation and it was her idea that I take a photo of it to put on my blog. The is the first time that all the ideas came from her - I hope it is the first time of many.

Ce petit arbre était l'idée de ma fille et c'est elle qui a fait le patron, découpé le tissu, découpé les pommes et l'oiseau et qui les a collés. Après elle n'en pouvait plus et comme c'est un cadeau pour ma mère et que nous partons ce soir après l'école... c'est moi qui a fini le projet. Mais on reste quand même très contentes de cet arbre et je pense que nous allons collaborer encore dans le futur. Voilà. Une journée speed s'annonce. Plein de préparations pour notre voyage et pour notre retour (c'est si sympa de revenir dans une maison propre, rangée...).


  1. Please tell *your daughter* this is the best door hanger I've ever seen.. it makes me want to make one just like that. Can you please ask her if I may use HER pattern? K x x ps I'm happy to brows through your blog today and see more of your creations and colours :)

  2. Hi Katja. I totally agree with you about wanting a door hanger like this - haven't got round to making ourselves one yet though. I passed on your message to girlie and I think she was really pleased - but she wanted to know if you planned to make it EXACTLY the same (colours n all) or if you planned to vary it. Little man was asking to see you and F today I think a skyposaurus soon would be nice. xxx
