Some Bits Used Up

I have a little box of bits and I thought I could do something with a few of them so I made some pages. 

They're all sorts of papers and fabrics layered up onto Khadi paper and stitched into. The cover was made the same way onto a backing fabric.

All now made up into a little book. 

I've also been doing a stab-a-long and felting a hare.  It's taking an absolute age waiting for the videos though. Mustn't complain as they're free but the kit wasn't.  He'll be another nice addition to all the others when finished though.  

Some of you may remember the Robins who nested outside the studio window in 2014 HERE and fledging HERE . Well, after we had the blackbirds nesting earlier this year some Robins moved back in to the, now very overgrown and hidey, robin box.  

So pleased to see some back in there and now it's well and truly hidden in the ivy I hope to see more. 

We also had The Greater Spotted Woodpecker dad, on left, showing baby, on right, how to find food in the lawn.  They were there for a good 10 minutes and baby was quite impatient at times! 

We're now through the un asked for General Election and the result has left us in quite a mess in my humble opinion.  No one party, whichever you voted for, is strong enough to take us through the Brexit process.  We will more than likely be shredded as all the bickering and backbiting goes on here.  This could be a bumpy ride, not that the dogs were too worried. 

Have a peaceful and creative weekend.
