what's been happening....

It's been a busy busy week... spring cleaning, painting, knitting , special orders and Herbie!!
Herbie "hatched" yesterday...he was made from a dense mohair with German glass eyes, a polymer resin beak , stuffed with polyester fiberfill and steel shot. Herbie's head is jointed but his wings don't move. I made his legs and feet by covering wire with polymer resin. Herbie's egg was wet felted over a large Easter egg and is edged with perle cotton in a blanket stitch.

Herbie is moving to Hawaii ( lucky bird) ... and for those that asked, the egg came first!
