Bird Tree / My Birds

Some of you know that I love birds. And most of all my boys Knut and Sixten, my cute cockatiels.
They are eighteen and nine years by now and they could live to be thirty years old if they don´t get any diseases.



Don´t you think they are cute. The bird with most grey color in is feathers  is the older one Knut.

As I couldn´t resist the blog hop and could´t find the fabric in Sweden I have to find some other fabric with birds. I have of course some of that in my stash.

Some years ago I have bought a lovely linen blended cotton of the Japanese brand Kokka with cockatiels in different colors. As I had a purple linen in my stash I picked out pink and yellow bird fabric which could sing together with the purple linen.

I need a new summer purse and created this one for me.

It was cold out side but the sun was shining and there were some green to have as a fond for my purse.


Don´t you think it look like summer already. This shrub is always green even in winter.

Here is a close picture of the cockatiels fabric on the purse

Here is the picture of the back of the purse



If you look close you could see the flower buds on the tree.


Yes it is spring here in Sweden too, even if we got some snow yesterday. But it disappeared in a hurry.

I am so happy for my purse, even if it is a very simple purse I thought that it made the fabric to sing as the birds.

Thanks Lana and lovely Samm for this blog hop with my favourite animals.

Now it is time for you to hop over to the other ladies for the day
Have a great day blog hopping

As it is Monday I am linking the post of the day to Eva Bambi syr a Swedish blogger who everyday posts about her quilting.

Spring is here in Sweden how about you?

  32. Så herlige fugler du har! ...og din nye sommerveske likte jeg veldig godt. Herlige fargeglade stoff, og med fugler på. Ja, vi er heldige som kan ha vår og sommer på syrommet uansett hva årstid vi har ute. :-)

  33. I love your cockatiel purse. Love the fabric! I, too, have a cockatiel....only had him 2 weeks and I'm allergic to him. Looks like my little guy will have to find a new home. ;) Birds are great, aren't they....they have such funny personalities!

  34. Spring comes and goes around here - at one point we had 80 degrees last week and now we've had ice and snow and 30 degrees!! You have more green grass than we have in the Midwest of USA. Love the purse; it really does look so bright and sweet. Great design.

  35. Wonderful purse! We are all happy to see Spring arrive, even with just a little bit of green. Thanks for sharing your project today.

  36. Nothing quite like cheery accessories to ring in spring! It's definitely spring here in Kentucky--70 degrees today. By the weekend it will be close to freezing so I'm enjoying it while I can!

  38. I love your Birds!! I had a pair of them and several love birds. They now reside with my girlfriend in PA when I moved back to MI. Your little bag is so sweet!! It's looks like something my daughter would carry. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

    Toodles,

  39. Knut looks almost exactly like the cockatiel we had when I was growing up. (Our bird was named Fred.)

    Your purse is so bright and cheerful! It looks just like spring!

  40. Your boys are super cute! The fabric you've used is one of my favorites. The bag looks really good and perfect for Spring/Summer! It looks really sunny there in Sweden. The sun came out at last here in Italy and suddenly it's Spring!
