Needle Felted Birds...


A batch of wool songbirds to share with you~

We have had very mild weather...
I was walking my pup yesterday morning and a bird
perched in our hedgerow and sang a large song to me!
It actually hurt my ears!


I took visual notes... had never seen this beautifully LOUD friend!
She turned to the left for the perfect profile...
Tilted her tail up...
Flew up high so I could check out her tummy colors...


My new friend is a female Orchard Oriole!
I wonder what she was telling me all about...
A male & female Cardinal perched nearby to hear her story~
She chased them off and then came forward in the tree
to share more with my pup and I!
Perhaps she likes the new suet flavor?


I keep notes of my feathered friends visits...
Especially new birds!
How fun it would be to translate her story!
Such a beautiful girl~

I'm off to list my new felted birds in my Etsy store~

Hope your holiday was wonderful and that your
new week is off to a great start!

I just love to hear about your animal/nature encounters . . . it makes me smile to hear how much you pay attention to every detail of their visit! You deserve such visits because you are a very special person! Have a great day, friend!

Your felted birds are delightful and I can't imagine how you make them. How fun for you to discover another bird along the lane; for me last week a new bird visitor was the Rufus-sided Towhee (I posted a photo a couple days ago).

Oh I love to find new birds and wonder where they came from and why I have never seen them around before!
Your beautiful felted birds are a treasure that will be loved for years to come by anyone lucky enough to purchase one!

These are so sweet! My fave is the little one w/the scarf...I pulled him up on Etsy so I could see his cuteness from every angle by clicking through your pictures:)

Such sweet wee birdies! Moving to the apartment has meant we are finally getting some birds to come to a feeder & I'm so excited about that. At the house we had hawks and the little songbirds were too afraid to come.

Your little birds are just darling Michelle! Very cute. I do love the birds and as we don't get many that stick around during the winter, I tend to have a lot of little bird trinkets tucked around the house. They make me happy!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Very well done. I love a bird motif, from salt shakers to dog bowls. I'll look on Etsy!

Michelle your artwork is wonderful!

The felted birds are wonderful and the added letter block is a great touch.
I love that we get a bit of your world in your creations. It's always interesting to hear how something inspired the various things you make. Then in turn, you inspire us!
