Nid douillet


Un hommage aux petits oiseaux qui chantent le matin pour me donner le coeur d'aller travailler. De jolis petit œufs à contempler en attendant de manger ceux de Pâques au chocolat. 

A tribute to the little birds that sing in the morning and give me heart to go to work. A couple of fragile eggs for our viewing pleasure until we can eat the Easter chocolate ones.

    1. Thanks a lot Maristella! I hope you will find the time for cross stitching, it is a very relaxing and rewarding activity. I could see the cover of the book you offered to your mum, it looks very inspiring and the models promise to be dainty. She will have a good time embroidering such beautiful flowers, almost as beautiful as the ones we can admire on your blog!
      Hugs! Sandrine

    1. Thank you Sheryl! I don't know if birds with such feathers would build such tiny nests but I found the dotted pattern on the feathers was lovely.
      Have a nice evening, Sandrine.

  6. What a nice spring story! Very soon there will be chicks))
    Sandrine, do you have real bullfrogs that look like they are in a cage?
    Yesterday I saw one on the street! It was such a joy! They rarely fly into the city, mostly live in the forest.
    I also plan to embroider a nest, but while roosters win.

    1. Yes Tatyana, the eggs are ready to crack and the chicks to pop out :))
      I don’t know if we have bullfrogs in our neighbourhood, I don’t really see what they look like.
      We also sometimes make strange encounters in our streets; I remember seeing a coypu that frightened all the passers-by. Poor animal, it was much more in danger among human beings than we all were just at the sight of it!
      I understand your rooster collection is growing. I had a thought for you last weekend as I was looking for a model in my old magazines. I came across a beautiful rooster pattern by Véronique Enginger with a background figuring the typical French countryside. Do you know it? Maybe you have already stitched it.
      I wish you a nice Wednesday, Sandrine.

    2. Oh, this is a mistake! I wrote a bullfinch about a bird! And the frog turned out ... We have bullfinches. As I embroidered here:

      But you rarely see them in the city, only in the forest. And yesterday I saw in the city. And it was fun for me!
      I yet did not sew a cock from Veronique, but in plans is. He's very handsome! Have a nice day! Tatyana

    3. Oh yes, I see! Your embroidered bullfinch is lovely, a beautiful match of grey and red. We also have some in my neighbourhood but we rarely see them too, they must be very fearful and prefer keeping a distance with the city. The most common birds around the place where I live are pigeons, blackbirds, ravens, sparrows, blue and great tits, readbreasts although not as numerous as the other ones, and still a few swallows even if their number has decreased since they have fewer and fewer places to make their nests. I feed the smaller birds on the balcony in spite of my angry neighbour who accuses them of causing a rise in glycaemia rate for her cats :((( This neighbour is a bird of an other species: a bird of ill omen! Have a nice evening, Sandrine.
