Spring is coming! (I think)

I know the calendar said that spring has already arrived. You can just never be too sure here in the Pacific Northwest since there isn’t a significant difference in the weather. But I’ve been seeing cherry blossoms as we drive around and the days aren’t quite as cold. It does give some hope that better days are ahead! Although we can still plan on it being soggy for another two months. Anyways, I thought I’d feature a little robin I made a couple of years ago for a spring-themed craft swap.

The pattern came from here from someone in the UK who made it as a Christmas decoration. This part baffles me. In America, robins are harbingers of spring, but apparently in the UK, robins are a symbol of Christmas? Can anyone explain this to me? Because I would really like to understand the connection.

But anyways, to reinforce the idea that this was a spring robin and not a Christmas robin, I made a little nest with eggs. I made those up out of my own head.

She’s so cute and sweet, I think I might need to make another one to keep at home!
