Long Tailed Tits, Christmas Decoration and Nepalese Tea-pot

28 Nov

1   My favourite birds are back – the Long Tailed Tits who arrived this morning. I love the way they live in families of several generations and they are just such beautiful little birds. They didn’t stay long so this is a photo I found online. Thanks to the photographer.

2   I have made a new Christmas decoration. It’s a clear ball filed with all the bits of wool cut off from all my knitting for the Grand-babies this year. I read about the idea ages ago and have forgotten where it came from but have been saving the trimmed off bits of wool since I started knitting for the Grandchildren some 4 and a1/2 years ago, each year in a different bag so there are now four wooly-bits baubles.

3   I fell in love with this tiny tea-pot when in Nepal. I think the colours and the inlay are very beautiful.

PS  I sewed some sequins onto T’s hat but they didn’t enhance it one bit so they are all off again and I will post the hat as soon as I can. I can hardly wait to see T’s reaction!

    I like the Christmas decoration. You/I could put different things in there.
    I have some old jewelry I never wear any more. More stuff I can’t throw away. 🙂
    I could take it apart and glue or attach some of the little gems (diamonds of course!!!) on the outside of the ball.

    OH HECK! I never do any of this kind of thing. lol But I love to see it and read about it.

    Wow, I made those ornaments for all my friends about ten years ago! I keep hoping to see Long Tailed Tits on the Heligan Wild web cam, no luck so far, but I have seen Coal Tits.
