Precious Babies



Aren't these just the sweetest, and the poor darlings have lost their mommies. I ran onto this on Mimi's blog Our Family Attic and just couldn't imagine not spending at least some of my so-called down time helping with this. Sometimes at the end of the day my muse just wants to veg and the creative mojo is not there, however it's hard for me to just sit and watch T.V. and these babies need these little "nests" made for them, either crocheted or knitted so they can stay warm and snuggly until they are old enough to fend for themselves. You can find the details and patterns here at Bev's Country Cottage.
I'm going to call my local Wildlife Center to see if they are in need also.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, take care and try to spend at least some of your time doing what you love.

HI Dru - I think I'm the deleted comment - my computer just crashed!!
What I was trying to say was awe....how cute are these little birdies and mousies and now they have no mummy - ooohh how sad!!. It is heartening to know that someone cares enough to crochet them little nests. Here's hoping they will survive and be happy.

Hi dru. What a great post and such poor little babies. I wish I knew how to crochet. I would be happy to help out. In addition, I like how you said to spend the day/wknd. doing what you love. This is so true. I ended up finding a great scrapbooking store out of town and enjoyed myself immensely just perusing everything. Found some great buys too! I hope you enjoyed youself as well. TTYL!
