Felt birds for the Pickles

High in the air above their beds fly white doves. This little project has been waiting in the wings for some time.
Weeks ago we collected two long and lovely sticks and I dreamed of birds suspended below them and perhaps perched upon them.
Part of the idea was inspired by this a long time ago and I have also spent quite a bit of time with a beautiful book called Artful Bird and some of the future birds will definitely come from here.

The pattern for these was by the author of that book and they were very well received by the Pickles when they returned from their weekend at grandmas. 
What a great motivator guilt can be.

They even inspired a bit of movie making by Big Pickle.....

Sadly, the plot doesn't really favour the little white bird..... but reveals Big Pickles rather constant and I'm sure 'normal' preoccupation with the perils of the ecosystem and inevitable death of many creatures...!?
