    All the felt bird ornaments are beautiful. They are very true to color and shape of the bird. Thank you, I already made the cardinal and have the chickadee cut out. Now all I need is time to finish all the patterns I’ve downloaded.

    Susan, Your gifts to all of us out here is immeasurable. Thank you. I, too, have a bird tree I leave up all year and only turn on the lights in December. My mom was a serious birder, I have become one and so has my daughter. Neither Mom nor daughter craft. I am a fiber artist that can’t draw but sculpt easily in 3d. I have been making needlefelted birds and they sell as fast as I can turn them out. I charge little, just enough to go buy more wool. If you visit my facebook page and look at my photos you will see my stuff and my photography of these birds I love so much. I belong to a grass roots, 15 year old nature center, all volunteer,501c3…The Great Swamp Conservancy. A portion of all my bird sales goes to the GSC. Now handicapped and mostly chair bound I enjoy making small tree ornaments I can work on in my recliner. I went crazy this afternoon when I came across your Downeast thunder Farm site. What a wonderful life you paint in your blog. Try a birdbath with dripping water or a little falls to attract more song birds. When I was younger and owned a home I planned my yard for the birds. The sound and movement of the water falls/pool brought my fav…the titmice, indigo buntings, even a red start to my yard. I live in up state, central NY near Syracuse in a city of 11,000 people, right in the middle of town. I would be honored to share my 2 bird patterns I created for felt, as I stated in the suggestion box. Both were designed from photos I took of the birds. Just enlarged the photo and cut aroung the bird, made a template and cut and sewed the pieces together with a bith of embellishment. I would be delighted to hear from you. Barb Barker, Oneida,NY
