Day 6 – Penelope the Bird – {Bird, Bird, Bird is the Word}

Welcome to the {Bird, Bird, Bird is the Word} blog series.  Every day during the month of May, I’ll be posting a bird craft or bird-related item on my blog as well as placing that object on my wall tree.  I can’t wait until the end of the month when my tree will be alive with a collection of chirpy chums.

Day 6 Penelope on wall treeToday Penelope the Bird came to stay on our tree.  I say ‘Bird’ because Penelope doesn’t resemble any specie of bird I’ve ever seen.  She has a beak, wings, legs and feet and she’s made herself at home on the tree.  So she’s a Bird!  Penelope has made fast friends with Olivia and Douglas and you just know it’s a matter of time before the Three Chicks stuff her with pie.

Penelope has come all the way from Wales via Cornwall in the United Kingdom.  She has a lovely accent and told Day 6 Penelope and Douglas and Oliviaus Cornish pasties are her favorite food.  She developed a taste for them when she was in Cornwall on an extended stay visiting friends.  I might be imagining things, but I’ve caught her and Charlie stealing glances at each other.  It think we might have our first case of smitten birds.


Day 6 Penelope



Penelope was made with crochet using a pattern designed by Lucy from Attic24.  I used dk wool and followed her impeccable directions.  Penelope’s feet and eyes are buttons from my stash.





Here’s a view of the tree so far.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow,







I think we would like Cornish pasties too.
