Welcome to our 2021 Make-Along!
What's a Make-Along, you ask?
It is a fun time of creation and giving, all wrapped into one! Every month we will provide inspiration based on our theme for the year. You then create an item for the Donation Chest at The Lamb's Loom.
And this year we are going birdy over our theme!
There are tens of thousands of people who come to South Texas to see all the wonderful birds that live here year around, and those that migrate thru the area. They are as beautiful and creative as y'all are!
So! Every month we will introduce you to a bird in the area, provide yarn suggestions and off you go! Make your favorite project like a hat, scarf, blanket or shawl for the Donation Chest every month. You are welcome to purchase your yarn here (that supports the mission, too!), or dive into your own stash and find something fun that works with the theme!
At the end of the year, we will celebrate those who participate with prizes and of course, HUGE thanks for perching on this project and giving of your time to support and help so many.
Join in and be one our
Fine Fibered Friends at
The Lamb's Loom this year!
Meet the Painted Bunting!
This lovely bird migrates down to South Texas in the fall and will head north again in the spring, just as many of our Winter Texan friends.
The male looks like a box of crayons with wings! He isn't hard to spot among the natural habitats of our area, that's for sure! While they breed in Central and Eastern US, they spend the winter here and further south into Central America.
The female and first year males are a yellow-green color.
