Just a couple of photos of my white bunting that I finished this week.
It is made with 7 flags of vintage linen decorated with vintage lace/crochet/embroidery and my own hand embroidery stitches.
It is attached to 3 metres of white tape so is just enough to go across the top of a double bed and fasten securely at each side.
Here is a close up of one of the flags . There are several different flag designs.
Now for my happy story.
It certainly made me smile.
Yesterday evening, just as I started eating my tea, a young woodpecker (probably the one I showed you last week on my fence!) flew into my window. I think it was being chased by the sparrow hawk.
It tumbled down and landed right outside my patio door and lay panting, wings outstretched.
Then the panting stopped and it was still.
I was sure it was dead.
I know you are supposed to just leave birds in shock alone so, I just kept an eye on it whilst I had my tea.
It lay completely still, spread out across the patio.
About half an hour later, as by now I was conviced it was dead, I thought I would go and have a look at its beautiful feathers, take a photo to show Annie and then dispose of the little body.
Imagine my shock - as I opened the door- it took off and flew to nearest oak tree chirping away as it went!!
A little miracle I am sure. I was so glad to know it was alive and well and had not been another casualty of the hawk or my windows!!
There now I bet you are smiling too!!
Have a great weekend.
