OMG! I have been a bad blogger. You know you've been a bad blogger when your son calls you and says, "So, you've given up on your blog huh." Crap. Busted. And he isn't the only one dinging me about it. Apparently, some actually miss reading it! So here I am having spent my entire day off at the computer working on the information packet for retreat, my butt has already taken on the form of the hard oak chair I've been sitting on all day so another hour or two isn't going to matter! LOL!
Just too funny!
The end of the scissors pops through and makes the beak of the bird. I thought it was the cutest thing so I took it home to Dan and said can you make me one? He said sure, piece of cake! However, Dan has a wee little problem. We don't talk about it much but it still exists. He has this insatiable desire to make things better than the original (sometimes he succeeds and sometimes he doesn't) Plus, he likes to give Connie a hard time. So he took the above bird and he made it into what he has named:
The Eastern Nebraska Segmented Hardwood Scissor Beak Bird.
It started out looking like this.
See the wooden thimble? Connie donated it to him. Even though Dan had to go and one up her cute vintage bird. She's nice like that. Plus I think she was worried about his sanity! LOL!!
BUT! The bird saga is not yet over. I had an idea of my own. I'd like to say I one upped Dan but I can't compare my efforts with his. His bird is art. My birds are craft. But I think they're cute and others must think so too since I have had several requests from friends for one. So here is what I call The Shabby Chic Scissor Beak Bird!
and Shabby Red:
And now I am going to call it a night, go sit in my comfy stitching chair and work on the model of the chart Paulette designed for retreat. It's gonna be here before I know it!
Have a wonderful evening, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love comments and would very much like to here what you all think of the birds!
Take care till next time!!
