Spring is for the Birds - Um Bird Puppets
Well it has been a while since I last posted an entry. It was a very busy month; spring breaks, spring cleaning the studio, projects and more projects. Spring cleaning the studio was wonderful. There is only one pile left on the floor. The surfaces, of course, are still cluttered with unfinished projects. In spite of the many projects unfinished, there were a lot of finished ones; a quilt, two sundresses, seven mini bird puppets and a few other misc. projects. The pictures are of the bird puppets. They are similar to the large one in my earlier post but much smaller. They were very fun to make. Just about the time we decided to make these my friend gave me some vintage craft supplies that had belonged to her mother-in-law. The beads were in that treasure trove as well as some vintage glitter. I'm looking forward to using that glitter. I realize these puppets look like toys for a children but not a chance. Adults think they are way to much fun. Anyway, I'm thinking about doing a tutorial on how to make them.
