Thanks, and Happy Birthday Carrie!

Last month I asked Carrie if she would make me one of her felt hanging birds that she sells on her Oh Cherry Blossom Etsy shop. I wanted a robin as small as she could make it which I knew would be a bit of a challenge as she suffers from double vision.

I said that there was no hurry but she did it almost straight away. I received the robin the following week, and I was delighted to see that it was the perfect size to hang on the felt tree that Nikki sent me last December.

    I’m a big fan of Carrie’s, I always enjoy reading her blog. The wartime food book should be a really great read, it’s something I’m quite interested in at the moment. The robin’s lovely, he looks just right in the tree. I hope you have a good week Flighty. CJ xx
