I finished my practice wings - I'm so glad I did a practice pair because, like everything else, there was a slight learning curve to the techniques involved. This was BIG fun though, and I can't wait to get going on my real pair!
This little fairy is the very first doll I ever designed by myself from scratch. She has been waiting for a face and costume for years under my cutting table for, and right now she's waiting for her hair glue to dry. Once I get her hair styled she is going to wear the practice pair of wings. Wow - 2 finished projects for the price of one, LOL!
And just to see if I could, I crawled into the calf barn where the starling's nest is in the hole in the wall to try to get a photo of my own. Taking this one involved some interesting maneuvers on my part, and once I almost dropped my camera into the nest. Thank goodness for wrist straps! The babies are a week older in this photo than they were in the photo on yesterday's post - Lydia and I are trying to decide if there are 4 chicks in the nest or 5. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, then look closely at the beak in the upper right, you might agree with us that it looks suspiciously like 2 beaks.) What do you think?
I think that big one looks hungry...
