A flock of locals

Because I am who I am, I decided this morning that I needed to make something to give to family on Christmas day.  We no longer give gifts, but something little and hand made can easily be given.
I decided to make some needlefelted birds and have made three, but my little fingers are a bit sore from being poked, so I'll make three more tomorrow.
Here are my little birdies, which are all based on birds I can see in my garden.

The one at top left is a Thornbill, the top right is a flame robin and the bottom one is a blue wren.  They do not have eyes yet and I think the robin needs a little adjustment, but they are cute.
Here they are standing up. I still think the robin looks a bit like a duck, but oh well.

Happy Creating!
