Well I got some sweeeeeeeeeeet feathers in the mail today. Robin (The Cranky Crow) sent me these. She begged them off her niece and I am so glad she did. They are amazing. I don't even know what kind of feathers they are. I wanted to use them for some projects I have going but they are so pretty I am not sure now.
|they came packaged all carefully in the TP roll and then in the tube. I was driving home from the post office pulling off the tape and thinking "I hope a moose doesn't walk out into the road, I don't have time to watch for them." Phew they didn't.|
I wanted one of the bonnets so decided I can do that. Well after several verbal outbursts I finally got one made that I like. I wanted the tail part longer but the next one will be right. I couldn't find a pattern anywhere so I figured I could just treat it like a piece of wood and cut and tuck. PROBLEM: You can't sand off your mistakes. Here it is anyway.
|I will make another one with a longer tail but puffy like the second one. I will dirty them up probably but for now it is done.|
|My beautiful hybrid lilac. Smells sooooooooooo good.|
|there seems to be a little glitch in the hybriding. I am not sure what happend but part is pure white in this spot. Still beautiful.|
|Not sure what this is but Oh I love it. The green one beside it is the female that gets berries in the fall I guess. Just planted them last year so not sure. Anyone know?|
|A new hanger for the 4th. Vanna still not wanting to be in the picture. hehe|
Enjoy the nights of summer.
