Well, Christmas has come and gone and here it is, almost the end of January. And the start of a new decade. 2010......Wow! It was hard to post here during the holidays, we were spending our time with each other and cherishing our last days with our beloved Leo. Our beautiful Red Golden Retriever was my loyal friend and constant companion (and I mean constant). He flew away a few days after Christmas. He was diagnosed with bone cancer right after Thanksgiving. He went so fast, and I know that the speed of his departure was a blessing. We miss you Leo-nski, you Big Red Rascal! So here I am to say, I am back in the swing of things. I am getting ready to teach at Ink About It on February 6, in Westford, Mass. Last weekend I dropped off samples of these fun little peeps. I really like the pedestal stand instead of the wire legs. See the other birdies here, (scroll down). We will have the option to make either in class and I will provide one spindle base for each student. Or if you think you can swing two birds, go for it! The beeswax adds such a soft luster finish that you barely see in these images, but when you hold it, you know it is there. They seem to be taking on a life of their own. Oh, and did I mention.......? Their wings are moveable!
