Fabric tags and birds

I saw an unusual bird in the garden, first of all I thought it was a Thrush and very excited as I haven't seen one for years, but when it moved I could see a stripe near its eyes and under the wings. So I emailed the RSPB about it, it was a Redwing, member of the Thrush family and spend the winter in the UK escaping the harsher climate of Scandinavia where they breed. And there was me thinking I'd discovered a new species LOL.

I'm a bit ahead of the game with these tags but, as I finished them last night, thought I'd send them on their way. The theme is 'My Secret Garden' and in case you're wondering about the fishy one - imagine there's a pond!!

  1. we have loads of thrushes around here and how super seeing the redwing! I love the tags, they are excellent lots of lovely colours and textures and, yes, I can imagine the pond.
    On another tack, will you be doing any more of your lovely petulant burdies - I don't think I can wait much longer!
