I have recently visited the lovely Shezs blog to find she had received some sweet Tilda birdies in a swap. They were prettily displayed in a vase hanging from some twigs she had gathered, I loved them so much that I really wanted to make some for myself!
Hubby has promised me some better looking twigs as I do get a bit impatient and quickly found some in the garden to display my birdies. I think they make a lovely centre piece on a table or really sitting anywhere!! That's why I'm going to have to make myself some more as I plan on having them as a centre piece on the table for Christmas Day and this lot does look nice in my sewing room. And even better they are also rose scented!

Enjoy your week
