A Flock of Robins

Every year it happens and today was the day. Once again a flock of robins flew in and overtook our hillside. Not just one, two, or three to let us know Spring is on it's way. A whole flock.

 I've been expecting them.

Several years ago, their arrival inspired a new rug hooking design.




Because the pussy willow bushes are always open when they come, I included a few branches in the design. However, the rug is centered around a beautiful orangey-red over dyed wool perfect for a robin. I finished the rug as a pillow but it will also make a nice rug. 

The pattern is available through my Etsy shop in both in paper format and hand drawn on
unbleached primitive linen.  I'd love for you to stop by www.myWinterCottage.etsy.com.

  1. Hi Terri - think of you so often and miss the homemade butter and biscuits. :) I am so happy that you have kept your sewing/hooking talent ongoing. Everything is wonderful and delightful to see all your creative rugs! I see the boys all grown up and can't help but think of their sweet little faces so long ago...I NEED to share with you MY favorite robins but it won't let me paste a picture - from April 2010!

    1. Judy!! So nice to hear from you. I'm glad you found me and left a note! I remember those robins. I had so much of that brown wool and ended up using it for the robin on the rug in this post. I hope you and all your family are doing well.
