Harold the Hummingbird
This is our first blog post on our new website, and we are excited to announce Harold the Hummingbird! He is the first in what we plan on being a 12 pattern series! Our Backyard Birds collection will be a set of 12 ornament sized plushies, that will be just perfect for hanging in a window, on the wall, or on the Christmas Tree.

Just outside of our work area, we have two bird feeders and some potted flowers, and we often get all types of birds visiting us there! Even now, in the dead of winter, we’ve seen a few hummingbirds quickly come and go. So we were inspired to create a backyard bird series, perhaps partially in anticipation for spring when we see even more bird activity!
The next pattern in this series that we hope to complete will be a nuthatch, one of my personal favorites! Not all of the birds in our series will be ones what we see in our own yard though. There are many, like the cardinal for example, that we don’t see here, but certainly can’t leave out! We’d love to get your input on what you’d like to see in this collection, but so far here is what we are thinking: Hummingbird (of course), nuthatch, chickadee, goldfinch, robin, blue jay, cardinal, western tanager, oriole, waxwing, woodpecker, and blue bird. But this is not set in stone, and we’d love your input if you have any other ideas.
But for now, the next project is to get the Valentine’s Cat and Dog wrapped up, so that’s what you’ll be seeing next!
Until then, happy sewing!
