Little Robin Redbreast!!

I hadn't noticed how many grey feathers there are on a Robin!
Also, they might be called Robin Redbreasts but they are more 
orange than red. 
In the 15th Century they decided to give animals English names.
So in America they called them Robin Redbreast, because
there was not a colour orange in English, until the 16th Century
when they found oranges.

Thought you might like that bit of History!!

For the size of the birds, they have rather big feet. 
My Needle Felted one is standing on a bit of driftwood
from my stash. He is just balanced and not glued.

Another make without the proper eyes!


Thank you for taking your time to visit my blog and
for leaving your lovely, up lifting messages. 
They are all read and much appreciated. 

Stay safe and well.
Big hugs,

Didn't know that about the Robin. We have a Robin visits every day here. He loves the meal worms The Doc puts out fir him. Your two are fabulous and
I see what you mean about the eyes. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Carol

You are doing really well with your needle felting .. .. and your little robin is so cute. How long do they take you to make .. .. are they very time consuming?

We have two robins that have nested under our pergola and the babies have been venturing out over the last week. We love robins.

Hope all is well at your end.

Love Jules xx
