I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it yet, so it just kinda hung out with my newest Little Visitors while I thought about it.
I’ve been working on fabric twine wreaths again to try to use up some of my scrap t-shirt stash, and decided to try the round green foam wreaths, too. I wrapped this one in 3 shades of blue, hot gluing to the top of the wreath form on every turn.
I attached each wing of the hummingbird and it’s bottom feathers with a tiny amount of thin wire for sturdiness, then a couple dabs of hot glue.
I knew it needed a little more, so I decided that I would add some clematis flowers, as I just love watching my clematis (below) bloom!

To make my crochet clematis, I followed the Narcissus petal pattern in the book “100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet” because the clematis pattern was in knit and I needed to crochet. To make the inside part, I made a ring with 6 stiches, then sc 8 stitches around, then I made 8 chs of 8 ss each to the base of the sc. I used a strand of light pink and hot pink (it was from my late grandmother’s yarn collection) to make the variegated pattern.
Thanks for looking, and thanks Jaime for such a cool hummingbird!
