Spritely Little Nuthatch

I spent the day outside working with Paul. Together we cut trees to thin out the area around the pond. While I worked, a tiny little nuthatch energetically flitted in an out of the trees. The wood has been cut and stacked for burning in the wood boiler, but I sincerely hope we didn’t cut down his home! Here’s his likeness in a felt ornament.

  1. Your bird patterns are adorable! I’ve seen nuthatches in my backyard here on Long Island, NY. It’s funny how they ‘climb’ trees.
    I’ll be making a few birds for my Christmas tree. Thanks for making and sharing the patterns!

    Wow, your patterns are wonderful. The chickadee and robin are so sweet. i love the owls too. Would you consider trying a quail pattern. they periodically run through our back yard ( we live on Vancouver island near Victoria) and are another favourite of mine. I didn’t spot one on your site. If I overlooked it please forgive me i’m not so hot with finding stuff on the computer. Thanks, Jill

    Hi Susan,
    Oh, how I wish you were my neighbor! I just found your web site and it’s wonderful.
    I’ve been working in my studio all morning and took some time out to relax with a cup of tea and Pintrest when I spotted your darling nuthatch! Just had to say thank you for sharing your talents with us!
