I Give You....The bird




Lookee what flew in and landed on my plant table. It's a most adorable Terrybird. I'm so thrilled with this little guy that I just keep going back and checking him out constantly. I'm not sure why I refer to it as a him, but it just fit that way. Male birds are most often the most beautiful anyway so a he-he shall remain. Thank you so much Terry of And Sew It Goes. This little bird is constructed so well it's amazing. I keep looking at the minuscule stitches and how he's put together-what a great job. I fully expected to love whatever you sent as part of the PIF but getting this is doubly sweet.
Not doing much today except for various cleaning projects that have languished for months. Before Christmas I shoved(literally)things into big bags and thought I'll figure this all out in January when it's 3 degrees and I can give it all my attention. It's still spring outside in Jan. in NY so I guess I better just forge ahead or I'll never get back to making anything. The area I'm de-cluttering is what is laughingly called my "studio". It's really a corner of my already messy bedroom or what I now call "the pile". There is not a lot of room for working there anyway but right now I need to find the bottom. The only interesting part of this type of clean-up is that it's like an archaeological dig. I will find things that I couldn't live without and have been buried for months. Wish me luck and send out the hounds if you don't hear from me soon.
And finally, great big smooches to Terry Grant.

Hi Dee, love the bird! You are one lucky lady!!!
And I wanted to thank you specially for the lovely comment you just left me *VBS*
In our age of "everything" sometimes is hard to admit to something like eating potatoes fried in bacon grease, but indeed, that is the secret *VBS* And yes, I'm guilty of that the other night. I very rarely have bacon, but if I do, I save the little bit of grease that it gives. It only takes a spoonful to make all the difference in frying potatoes. I don't do that often either...LOL.
Good luck with the cleaning, if you don't re-appear I'll send the hounds. Big hugs, Finn

That little bird is beautiful!! What a treasure!

Speaking of birds, why don't you do what I do when I have to venture into my studio....I leave bread crumbs so I can find my way back out! You could try bird seed!!

What a fantastic job on making that bird...how great for you to receive it!

I'm so glad the bird arrived. Looks like you set out a little snack for him! (Yes, I think it is a him as well.) I was happy you were one of the first responders to the PIF. It's always fun to send something special to someone who is special. Good luck with the decluttering. I am revving up to get ready to move, so am facing life-changing declutterization. I'll watch your progress for inspiration!

He is gorgeous! I have been seeing some really marvelous birds out on the web lately! I featured an owl I am in love with from AbbyJane at While She Naps on my blog! You got this as a gift? You are a lucky girl!

An archaeological dig- that's what my boys go on when they clean their room!! They can find some pretty scary stuff though!!
