On the other hand, I did make her skirt.
Ages ago, the lovely Alicia G (of the Craft Cart) sent me a most spectacular package of upholstery samples and a necklace and a really long piece of this wonderful floral fabric. Immediately I knew I wanted to make Biscuit a tiered, gathered skirt. And several months later, here it is. Not perfect but done.
Thank you SO much Alicia! Now I just need to come up with the perfect project for the upholstery pieces...
Changing gears completely, birds.
Every evening when I leave work I walk across a field that is filled with these tiny black birds with orange bellies and narrow wings that fly within inches of the ground. It's really cool to watch them swoop through the air and skim just above the grass tops. A nice treat as I head out into evening commute traffic.
Tonight I had my camera along and spent a good while trying to get a picture of the birds but instead getting about 10 photos like this.
I do believe that blur in the center is possibly a bird (but not exactly what I was going for).
I finally got this:
At least there's a bird in there! And then I took a video so bouncy it would give you motion sickness so I won't bother to share.
Ok, so that was really random and I guess you had to be there but these birds are way cool. (well, in person anyway).
*not sure what's up with the bluish light. weird....
