Some of you have asked about the birds on the mantle. My friend Sarah found the pattern here- they are pretty easy to make....I did make one, but my top fabric was a little heavy, and so the bird looked messed up. So, if you follow the pattern I am sure yours can look beautiful like Sarah's or the ones here at Spool.
Speaking of birds......
The kids and I are having so much fun making these felt birds. They will be made into something that I cannot reveal yet b/c of the grandparents who read this. Lets just say that these birds will soon be mobile.....:)
I love birds! Once again, God our great Creator, has overwhelmed us with His beauty and we try in vain to copy the artistry.
