Birds, tv, and how I deal with guilt


There are exactly three shows I watch regularly: Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, and Remington Steele reruns. I’m just not much of a television person – I get antsy sitting still for too long, and no matter how much I feel I’ve earned some down time, I can’t shake the guilt of sitting there doing “nothing.”

Until now. I’ve finally discovered the secret to tv without guilt: birds. Yep, birds. Felt birds, made from the scraps of other projects (my thrifty soul rejoices), and just the right kind of project to keep my hands occupied and my sense of guilt at bay while enjoying my favorite on-screen diversions.

So these sweet little birdies are made with love … and a large helping of Doctor Who. And if they start displaying any timey-wimey properties, we’ll know why.
