Creative Spotlight

A cute birdie decoration

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.


  1. I've also made a version of Lucy's birdies, see my blog :-)

    I'm wearing jewel coloured tops for the first time since last autumn, I'm not sure why I've really tuned into greens and purples, as well my favourite pink shade. I've never gone for pastels but greys, blues and black I suppose. Life is certainly brighter these days!

  2. Rachel, I love your birdie too! They are so cute. I gave the cardinal to my older friend who is moving away this month to Florida. We will miss her. The robin went to another friend for her belated birthday.

    I kept the colorful one.I plan to make some more soon.

    I love green too now. Not sure why but I am wearing it more. Love color but do wear a lot of black too.
