You would be amazed at how long it takes me to be happy with a pattern, so you are going to have to wait a little while longer...No, not even a sneaky photo today!
Instead, I have to show you an Etsy seller that is so talented it's just mind-blowing.
Oh, how I wish I was able to make something like this!!
She uses a variety of incredibly well chosen fabrics and facial details are carefully handpainted.
They have glass eyes and a polymer clay beak.
The legs are made from painted wire and the birds are filled with wool stuffing.
The blue tit and goldfinch above and the woodpecker below are all favourite British birds (she has many others on her site too)
and have been handcrafted with such attention to detail that they are instantly recognisable.
Speaking of which - one of my cats, Ruby, spent yesterday afternoon asleep on the birdtable.
Hopefully, she wasn't taking an after-dinner nap!
