Nesting Birds

The color of this Mandevilla is sure to attrack a Hummingbird or two don't you think???

I went to water one of my hanging baskets & look what I discovered in the middle of the Geranium..........the "sweetest" little bird's nest with a single blue egg.
I think the mother of this egg is a little brown Wren.
Well, this made me think of & want to make.......

THIS!!!
Can you see the little felted bird's nest with a single blue egg in it?



Here's a better shot!!!
The eggs aren't felted but rather a purchase from Tuesday Morning back before Easter.

And, of course I couldn't stop there.......
I had to make a bluebird to go with.....
The beak didn't turn out too well though. It looks like it should be on a platypus!!!!

This Bluebird is a free pattern from Berroco.

That's exactly how the beaks on my Easter peeps turned out last year! Couldn't get them to do right, no matter what. I love your little bluebird and the nest!

those are all so cute. I have yet to knit any birdies or nests. Have the wrens fussed at you for being around their nest?
