Reason number 29 for why I'm missing Summer is that it's so much harder to take blog photos now it's over! I have quite a few robins, in various forms, scattered around the kitchen waiting to be photographed but whenever I have a minute to get it done, it seems to be tipping it down with rain. And it's dark so early now too which is really not helping. But, I did take some photos of these garlands earlier, before the drizzle turned to downpour.
I've cut out some larger robin shapes to make into a garland for a Christmas present, which I haven't yet got round to sewing, but I had so many scraps that a garland of little robins was completely essential as well! And, as you can see, it became 2 garlands. I have a plan to put together a 'hamper' of homemade Christmas decorations for someone as a present, and these little robins seemed perfect for it, but I had to have some for us too!
I really like how they're all a little bit different.
And if they can look bright and cheery even on a day like today...
Then they will most certainly brighten up my home at Christmas time.
More robins will definitely follow, weather permitting!
