Inspired By A Mommy Bird Out My Window

We are so lucky at our house.  Last year a mommy and daddy robin decided to make a nest on our rain gutter right outside of our front window.  We literally just sat on the couch and watched the miracle of life occur.  It was unbelievable!  They are back this spring and I am SO HAPPY! 🙂  The mommy has made any repairs necessary to the nest and is now warming her eggs.  I cannot wait until the babies arrive 🙂  I found this vintage pattern on flickr and decided to give it a go.  It went very quickly, I finished all of this in one evening!  Just the eyes are left.  This will hopefully become a pillow for my girl’s bed.  This is my first time attempting the satin and french knot stitch.  I really enjoyed practicing them!  This is such a fun hobby!

    We had a bird family return to make a nest every spring at our old home and it was incredible to watch! Gorgeous pattern!
