Springtime Robin!!

I've been so busy this past week making 50 birds! A lady in Australia has been buying my birds to sell in her shop. She has a boutique vintage store where she sells collections of vintage pieces and handmade treasures. To bad she lives so far away. I would love to visit her store. Its called Newspaper Taxi http://newspapertaxi.com.au/

Today I finally finished up a special order for 2 robins. Someone is getting these birds as gifts very soon. I'll be making a pattern for him as soon as I can figure out a glich that I've run into when making my patterns. I'm sure ready to see some real robins. More snow tomorrow :( My sister and I have a contest every year to see who can be the first one to spot a robin. Last year I won when I saw one the last week of February.


**Update**
My Robin pattern is now available for instant download at Pattern Mart now. Click on the link over on the sidebar.

So dear! The receiver will love this sweet Robin~
We saw Robins in January! I wanted to gather them up and give them each a hat and scarf... my husband wanted to go buy worms... the kids were scrambling to find a camera because we typically don't get to see them until late March. :)
Best wishes!

I absolutely love your birds, you do such a lovely job. Can you believe that today while locating my chickens a whole flock of Robins landed in my front yard. I don't quite know what to make of it, is there such a thing as "winter Robins"? I think my chickens are as confused as I am.

Love your birds. I only made one bird with my pattern and messed up the tail part. I would like to make a bunch of them as a grouping, so will have to work on some more.
