A Flock of Birds

I fell in love with this pattern the 1st time I saw it. I had a lot of #10 cotton thread to use up and it lent itself well to these. I wanted them real colorful . . . thus I used two threads for each round. Gives them a variegated look.

As I was getting toward the end it dawned on me that I needed two things . . a tail and bells for the feet instead of beads. So I went back and cut thread to make into tails an added the silver bells to the feet of the last bird.

AS I worked o them, I sat there and smiled like a fool . . I thought they were so cute. I wish the camera caught this cuteness . . the pictures do not do them justice. But, I added them to my Etsy Shop anyway. Hopefully, someone will think they are as cute as I do.
