A Tree is made

I loved making this tree. Thank to Donna Bayliss for creating this wonderful pattern. It is written for 8, 12, 18, 24 and 36 inch size. I used wool felt and made it in the 24 inch sixe. In the pot it measures about 29 inches. Fun to do but I did have to rest my hand from cutting the felt and gluing to the wire. For now it will hold my small tatting motifs. I know I will be making another one, smaller. So, that was my weekend fun. Oh did I mention....
they are back...in the same hanging planter and there are 2 eggs.....the Mourning Doves just love our yard. It is somewhat protected from the elements as it is under an overhang of the garage wall. Does get the morning sun, but unless it rains and is windy it stays dry. Well that about covers it. I am off to have a Kosher Dill pickle....and then to put some rice in the steamer for a stir fry. So glad to spend time with you. Thank you for the kind words and your friendship. Have a great rest of the day.

That's so lovely Grace, the little head just showing is a delight to see. They've picked a great spot to nest.

This tree is such a great idea, Grace.
So wonderful that the doves will be your guests this year again. We once had a couple of redstarts building their nest on a beam under our roof three years in a row. then in the third year magpies pulled out the nestlings and killed them. Well, nature, I guess. But it was sad anyway.
