This morning we went to see Kate's friend who lives on the side of a hill, surrounded by bush...NZ bush of course, tree ferns, cabbage trees and the green, green grass. A most beautiful , peaceful place. One window we looked out went steeply up behind the house where there was a small flock of sheep grazing. Their owner is Swiss and has put bells on the sheep so there is a lovely tinkle as they move around. I'm sure he would think he was back in Switzerland!
After the obligatory nap....imagine having to have a would be rude not to I'm sure....and a cup of tea, we both began our playing. Kate is very occupied with a project she is working on and I went back to my birds.
There is a mouse I completed last night as well, no face as yet but it is to go into a parcel for a special new baby in the family.


  1. I love them so much they still make me laugh even though I have seen them in real life!

  2. I love your painted paper birds! What a great inspiration for an art lesson for my younger students! :)

  3. Thankyou for enjoying my birds! Mrs A
