“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father…Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”

Throughout the year, the leavings of various needle-work projects, rather than being tossed in the bin, are placed in a special wooden bowl. Since most of the knitting, crocheting and embroidery is done for the Mad for the Farthing Crowd, they naturally feel an affinity for these bits and bobs and, this year, Hedydd decided to assume control of the intended project: helping birds build nests.

Yarn Over Bowl

A year’s worth of needle-work

Though Winter is just shy of being a month old, signs of Spring are showing in the garden: days are lengthening, daffodils are pushing through, seasonal visitors have been noted. Soon nests will be in order.

Yarn Over Crape Myrtle

The moss-filled hole in the old crape myrtle is a suitable place to cache roving and yarn.

Yarn was stuffed into suet cages and draped over the gardenia, over the privet, the rambling rose and the even the branches of the neighbor’s crape myrtle, drooping over the fence. There was certainly enough left to grace the front garden, Hedydd knew, and some to share with the neighborhood children.

Yarn Over Over

Hedydd hopes for many beautiful and cozy nests come Spring.

If you’d like to join the Crowd and encourage nest building in your garden, please refer to this article published by The Humane Society of the United States.

Hyacinth Paw-Paw joined the family on a blissfully chilly November day to assist with the seasonal decor. She found herself surrounded by a grove of tiny sisal trees and her black boots dusted with chalky snow. Her task was to choose just the right combination of trees appropriate for the wreath and the wreath-maker.

Wreathing 1

Hyacinth Paw-Paw deliberated carefully, giving each little tree her full attention. She straightened the trunks of some and tidied the branches of others. There were a few that had their own special character, and those she left alone, knowing they would be appreciated as they were.

At the end of the day, lovely progress had been achieved, improvements considered and plans made. It was a gentle start to a gentle season and her heart was filled with cheer.
