I've received 3 birdies so far.

The first is from April in Florida. Is that you Avesthal? I love the color.  Looking forward to hanging this one up in the window!

Second is from rackycoo. Again, I love the color of this little birdie, which she has named Fracis! I might take her to work and set her on my desk there.

And third is an amazing package from purlgirlknits. A great little upcycled owl, Bob! He reminds me of a scarf set that I had back in high school. She included a beautiful box and couple of little extras too!

Thanks so much everyone! I love it all and can't wait to get the last two birds! Smiley

Cute owl!!  Cheesy

Yay!  Camera is charged and so here we go!  Cheesy 

The first package I opened was a sewn bird from goatgoddess!  He's very cute, I love the colors and the beady eye is perfect!  Thank you!   Cheesy

And the next package I opened was from Vanyel.  It's a gorgeous silver pendant with a cute fat birdie!  Cheesy  I love it, thank you!  How did you do that bird on the silver?  Is it a stamp or some sort of etching?

And then the next package was from crafty gurll.  It is a super cute owl embroidery!   Cheesy   And also a little birdie friend for the owl.  Cheesy  Thank you!

And then I opened my last package and it was from colorfuldayz.  I love the beaded tail, so cute!  And also the machine embroidery part, it really gives it an interesting texture to the 'feathers'.   Thank you!  Cheesy

Thanks, everyone for the lovely birds!   Grin

I received my last two birds today! Cheesy

The first one was from Jeane. She's embellished with lots of sequins and is very pretty!

The second was from stargardener. Not only is the embroidery lovely but the tea towel will get a lot of use!

Close up of the bird embroidery.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me such wonderful birds! Cheesy I'm considering making a mobile with my four spool birdies to brighten up my room.

I received my last bird yesterday, so here are the final three (I had not gotten around to putting them up here yet!):

This bright little birdie is from Oh That ... I love the fabrics.

A lovely little bird from an old Finnish-Swedish dictionary, with poetic writing by Foxlet. It is really beautiful, and just makes me smile when I read it. She also sent along an origami bird, and a version of this with a purple background so that I could choose which I liked best.

And my final arrival, Larry, from Babbetto. I so love Babs birds, and am very happy to now have one to call my own!

Thanks so much to all of my partners. This has been a wonderful swap!

I received two lovelies today!

Here's the fantastic jackdaw from Avesthel:

Jackdaws are one of my favourite birds. They're a member of the same family as crows, and incredibly smart. (They can recognise their own image in a mirror, for example.) Thank you, Avesthel! I really like him.

The second one is from crafty gurll.

Argyle! I love argyle. Cheesy The birds are so adorable, and I love the little clay charm. Thank you so much!

I'm so glad everyone is likeing the embroidered birds and charms I'm sending!  That was superfast shipping to Finland, I am shocked. Shocked  I received from Foxlet:

A vintage reconned bird with an origami crane.  I wish I knew origami.  Cheesy

The next from purlgurlknits:

Sophie the Owl, with a cool little box and some purple earrings.  Purple is my FAVORITE color.

Thanks girls, I love them all! Cheesy

I have two lovely birds so far. The first is a beautiful fabric bird from Colorfuldayz. I am totally in awe of the patience and skill which went into this. There must be about a hundred french knots, a technique which I was never able to master. So sorry I failed to rotate the photo.

The next item I received was this gorgeous scarf from KungPow, which was both hand dyed and silkscreened. It's almost too beautiful to wear. Almost.

Thanks so much, guys.  I love both of these. Kungpow, I hope you like what I'm sending just as much.

And next I received from Jeane!  It is a pretty wire wrapped birdie with some pretty beads and some extra stickers too.  Cheesy  it is silver although it looks golden in the photo.  Thank you!   Grin
