Jersey Birds

The I♥ Market on Saturday went so well -  and so did all the Jersey Birds!
Remember, I told you here that I would be making more!
These birds all have a story.
The red one was a thrifted sleeveless knitted top in it's former life.
The soft fluffy cream  one was a woolen jersey that had shrunk in the wash and was given to me by a friend. Thanks D!
And the beautiful blue patterned one came from a friend too.  This one belonged to someone very special in her life and she decided to allow me to be creative with this lovely piece of handiwork. Thanks E! I hope you approve.

Beautiful!
It is heart-warming to see a loved one's handiwork gaining a new life all over again.
You are very special!
