Bower Birds for TheGrangeRange

I’ve been busy crocheting for TheGrangeRange yarning bombing of her GP husband’s local surgery planned for later in the summer.Yarn Bombing Banner

The theme is fantasy garden and when I came across the freshly released Bower Bird Pattern by Attic24 I knew exactly what I would do.

You’ll find the link and lots of lovely photos just here, on the Attic24 blog. If you have never visited her site you are in for a treat.  Lucy from Attic24 is also (a very busy person)  heavily involved in the organisation of Yarndale coming up this September in Skipton, including organising the Mandala display.

She has run many crochet courses based on her Bower Bird but it is only now she has published the pattern and instructions.

So I set to work in the garden.

And over the past week have been embellishing them with a few stitches here and there.

Last night they got stuffed.


 

 

I can just see these sat in a yarn bombed tree, can’t you?

Love, Lucie

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  6. Your birds look amazing, I love the stitching embellishments it makes them very unique. A friend has covered a larg branch with crochet and the birds will look amazing sat amongst the colourful branches. Thank you.

  9. So cute, and very clever. Crochet is on my list of things to learn, after knitting and a backflip.
