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.
A few weeks ago it was Carrie’s 6th blog anniversary so she did a giveaway to celebrate it, which much to my surprise I won. I received the parcel last Monday which contained a lovely note along with the book How to Grow Food – A Wartime Guide by Doreen Wallace, three of Carrie’s own handmade flowery notecards and a wonderful tiny handmade felt robin all wrapped up in tissue paper secured with little soft plastic sticky backed kitty, butterfly and cloud. I’ll review the book later on, and as you can see both robins are now happily perched on Nikki’s tree.
Thanks, and Happy Birthday Carrie!
Have a good week!
