It's been almost a week now since the horrible things went on in Japan. I have a quite close connection to that country, and I have been more than horrified. Fortunately the person I have been worried about is safe, and so are her loved ones too. I am thankful for that, but my heart still goes out to others there in need of help. I have been working hard, and have tried not to check the news on every five minutes. I have been working on birds, and these ones will always remind me of this time - in good and in bad.

I wish these birds will represent the hope and faith to the happier times, and will bring joy and smiles where needed.

Here's to happier times, to the reconstruction and new life.

Hei Mia! You have created again wonderful things! What a lovely idea and your birds are always so good, happy and live! It's so difficult to concentrate in everyday things when we have all the time in our minds Japan and all the horrow they are going through.

It is so sad Mia, their suffering is just unimagineable. Let's hope they can start to rebuild their shattered lives soon.
Lovely birds, thanks for sharing.

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
