On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time I am hosting. My chosen theme is 'Birds, nests and eggs', a springtime theme that is very dear to me, as I love to watch the birds nesting in this busy time. I made a large (10") tag, which was painted with acrylics and metallic paint. The nest was made from dried grass and twigs. The heart is a chipboard one, painted and stamped. The little birds bringing home nesting material are vintage German scrap. The eggs were bought at the Euro shop. I sewed the edges with some crazy stitching:

Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to the ladies of the T gang who visit here. I drank my coffee outside last market day, and was able to listen to the sound of the carillon bells playing from the tower and watch all the market activity:
The flowers were especially beautiful:

This is the lovely prize I won from Simon Says Blog a few weeks back. It took a week to get to Germany from the states, and then the German customs kept it for nearly three weeks....
Sorry, can't write much just now, my fingers are still very painful.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
