Love Birds for the Yarn Bombing

How cute are these little love birds? They have been sent to alight on a tree in our charity Fantasy Garden yarn bombing at the surgery from the lovely Twisted Yarn

 

Love BirdsWe had a bit of a moment when we thought they had been lost in the post but thankfully they had just been delayed for some reason.

Blue Love BirdThank you so much for this gorgeous contribution. One of my friends has made a crochet tree and these will look right at home nestling in the branches.

Orange Love BirdThey are such a pretty pair I think they will definitely be staying together.

Pretty Little Flower Garland

This gorgeous creation has joined our yarn bombing project from afar, Singapore no less, it has been sent from Pretty Little Things in a Box. This is a multi national exhibition that conveys so much thought, kindness and goodwill from all our blogging friends, we cannot thank you all enough.

Flower Garland 1

Each flower has a little pearl in the centre and all the way along the garland are cute little picot leaves. I will have a hard time giving this beauty up, I might even put a bid in to buy it myself.

Have I told you about that?

We are putting all the displays out and our visitors will be able to put in a bid to purchase any of the items then at the end of the week we will contact the highest bidders to collect and pay for their pieces and the money raised will be added to the charity pot.

I love all the bright colours, it makes me so happy just to look at it.

Flowers, Lovely Flowers

Here are the next arrivals.

30 crochet and kinitted flowers

How about these fabulous flowers, they make a garden all on their own. 30 fabulous designs and all different with the exeption of  the 2 tulips. It is worth keeping an eye on Hatted Owl as I think she may be doing a pattern for them to share with us.

Then we received these rather unusual floral baskets, they were kindly donated by a fellow crafter who lives 20 miles down the road. They are really lovely, I am not sure if you can make out from the image but the flowers are made with different yarns including cotton and mohair. It adds contrast and texture to the flowers.

Crochet Flowr Baskets

This is a truly international project with parcels coming from different continents and……………. from just down the road.

Amazing and thank you so much.

The pattern for him is available from TheGreenDragonfly .There are 2 of the little owls which are fab, they will be added to my little nest of owls that I have been working on, I will show you those soon I promise.

My lovely friend shares her post for this pattern here the pattern for the flower is shared by TheRoyalSisters but it has been cleverly tranformed into a brooch. Such a lovely gift, thank you so much. I will treasure it always and wear it to Yarndale this year so a little part of you can be there too.
