All dressed up and no place to go....

Here's Mrs Byrd. She's all dressed up and no place to go.......


Look at her smart boots and lovely summer hat with a big flower in it. She'd love to come around for tea. Would that be OK? It seems such a shame to just sit on the nest when you are looking so pretty......


To tell you the truth, when I started making her yesterday, she was going to be a chicken, but I just didn't like how her comb on the top of her head looked...So as I was trying different variations on combs and wattles, the thought came to me that maybe birds sometimes have bad "hair" days, so maybe I should make her a hat to cover it up! So then she became the well dressed Mrs Byrd!

Do invite her out....she'd love to meet you....
