I love your fiber cage!

When I was a little girl my mom would put hair from my hairbrush out for the birds (I had extremely long hair so there was always plenty!)I always got a huge kick in the fall when the leaves were off the trees and I'd sometimes see an abandoned bird's nest with a blonde lining.


What a lovely garden you have!


I have heard of people doing this with their little bits of fiber and was wondering if they just let the wind take the fiber or what - thank you for showing your method! I can't think of a better use for my leftovers!


Oh! I forgot to say that I second you on borage - it's awesome, the flowers are edible and it's one of the few true blues found in nature.


Excellent use of a suet cage. I know I have one somewhere. I'm going to go round it up right now and do what you did. I love it!


Your fiber cage is such an excellent idea! I am so going to do this!


Maia...go right ahead and use the photo of my bag made with your wonderful pattern! Let me know if you would like me to send you the photo. Thanks :)

Great idea sharing your fiber scraps with the birds :) I bet there will be lots of colorful nests in your neighborhood!


I stuck scraps of loosely spun, single-ply yarn in our pyracantha where robins have nested before. I hope someone made use of them.


Great idea with the leftover fibre. Up here the birds can use all the help that they can get.
And I've always wondered about people that impulse buy an animal and also wondered about the people who sell them.
