Orchids and A Little Pink Bird

Mum's orchids are blooming!

Oh! Look who's here!

It's a little pink bird!  You like the orchids don't you, little pink bird?

Come join me! Chirp ♪♫ •*¨*•.¸¸♥
This bird is needle felted.  It's the first time I'm making a needle-felted bird.  The legs are quite a challenge to make.  Think I'll do three claws instead of two next time so that it can stand better.

兵马俑 ~ The Terracotta Army

Finally, I got to meet them...

Statue of Qin Shi Huang (秦始皇):

Even the admission ticket looks so pretty:

  The Infantrymen:

Terracotta soldiers waiting to be restored from the fragments:

Alright, say this fast without tripping up - Horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, horses...



 Look at the tiny bow on his shoe :) :

A cavalryman & his horse:

 The Emperor's bronze chariot:

  Xi'an, I'll be back!
