  4. Oh Linda, I love your robin and your colouring makes the feathers look so fluffy and real! Wonderful. It's funny, I've been adapting non-Christmas birds onto my Christmas cards this year too. I think it's the mild autumn, ere are still so many birds around at the moment, and its hard to let your thoughts turn too much to snowy scenes. Hope you are well and enjoying life. Maddy x
