After keeping busy making baby blankets for nieces and daughters of friends, I made this cute little crocheted bird following directions at a great new crochet site I happened upon. Attic24 contains the creative crocheting energy of Lucy who lives in Northern England.
What I really love about her patterns is the full bore use of color! Rainbow colors attract me every time. (I used to favor pastels, so much so that one visitor to this house when we first moved in thought I must be a perennial optimist because of the pastel color choices.) Now I lean more towards jewel tones, possibly a sign of maturity? Naw!
I hope you will visit Lucy's site. She has promised a new "creative mess" project soon, using buttons and bows and all sorts of things from her stash. Can't wait to see it!
In the meantime I am making a couple more birds for friends. I will post photos of them as they are done, like the cardinal above.
