little birdie....

Finally got a little crafting done. My friend (hi Tami) asked me to cut some wood for her and when she brought this little bird pattern over, I knew that I wanted to make one too. So, I cut one for each of us. Here is my little birdie. I added the long legs and I drew and cut some feet for her so she could stand on my bookcase. I made a template for the flourish on her little body using my silhouette. I just lightly traced it onto the wood and hand painted it.



So fun! And I even have a few more projects waiting in the "wings". (Get it?!)

Oh my gosh! It's adorable! I love the flourish you added...and the feet! Too cute! Thanks again for cutting the birdie for me, and I'm glad you got something out of it too :)

So so so cute! Are you totally loving your silhouette? Not sure if Mom even got hers out of the box yet? Mom, is it out of the box?

No . . . sad to say it is not out of the box yet! I'm waiting for my girls to come over and have a play day with me. Anything that has to be hooked up to the computer stresses me out a little!

I'm lovin' this little bird. Send me over the pattern so I can have one too. And BTW, the scroll saw is still in the box, too. I know, I know, I can't wait to use it but I'm trying to find a table to put it on!
