Funky Bird

When I was flying to Buffalo, I worked on an unusual bird.  He isn't pretty, but I like him.  I tried starting him over one.  Tedious.

  So I thought I would try him over two and see how I liked him.  So far:

I'm a little tight on the edges of the linen.  But I can make it work.  Working over two is so much easier.  I'd like him over one but I don't want to stitch him over one.  I should call him the lazy bird.  I am just lazy and want an easy stitch.  Hey, I can if I want to.

Today:  Finish Evan's stocking!!!  One more candy cane to go and Evan's name on a star.  I'm going stash diving to find some lining fabric.  Hopefully I can show you the completed stocking tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to DS#1!  I can't believe you are as old as you are.  I bet you can't either.  Have a great day.


  1. He's different, but cute.
    Can't wait to see Evan's stocking.
    I can't believe you put that together so fast!
    Happy B-Day to your son.

  2. Very cool bird. I think I've seen him but can't remember ... maybe in the Attic's newsletter?
