My Mate Mo Made A Little Birdhouse For My Soul!

My oh my… do I feel humbled by some of you guys out there! The lovely comments and support I’ve received from you over the last few weeks has been phenomenal and I can’t thank you all enough.. Its been a very emotionally charged couple of months with Alex still at the treatment unit and still no progress. I’m even more sad as now Alex has presented as having Epilepsy after two seizures. So you can imagine what we as a family have been going through.

BUT THIS has so lifted my spirits today when I got it in the post this afternoon. Its a  beautiful “handmade with love gift” from our  mate Mo. 


Mo's Bird Cage

So let me dedicate this post to Mo and display her talents to you wonderful people out there so that you can all give her a huge applause. For a start look at the little tag she made….



Isn’t all the detail amazing! Mo’s even pasted a little picture of my sewing circle and my love of fruit salad sweets on it. hahaha

Cute buttons and 3d features complete this fab item.

Such small touches reveal so much thought!


The fine work in the crochet with little beads antennas for the butterfly and little bumble bee buttons.

Such amazingly fine and dainty detail.


I really am lost for words.. so in praise of my “flickr family and cyber sister Mo”.. thank you again.

As in the lyrics from They Might Be Giants

Make a little birdhouse In Your Soul”

“Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say I’m the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little birdhouse in your soul

I’m your only friend
I’m not your only friend
But I’m a little glowing friend
But really I’m not actually your friend
But I am”


Much love for a great week ahead.
