Complete Flickr set of images here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/purlgurl/sets/72157620169250821/

Homespun yarn makes for most excellent dreads/hair/beard!!!
Strung up shell beads to add to the head of hair.
Eyes from a vintage/antique defunct doll.
Penned in tatt of an anchor.

Now Fathom is heading to Tennessee to my swap partner.

crafty gurll, the spool one must be from OhThat. I got one of hers too!  Grin She's resting in the cymbidium outside my front door at the moment. Long flight from Ohio. I'm hoping Bumble arrives at OhThat's doorstep soon.

Here's a much better snap of lukenlarry's owl she sent me. Isn't he cute? He's a two dimensional quilted bird with silver and pearl findings for eyes. He's enjoying the sunshine and blooming lavender on my deck at the moment.

I'm at work, so I don't have access to my camera. I'll take snaps and post by tomorrow. Thank you whomever your are  Huh... < hoot hoot >

Since I won't get home until late tonight, I decided to scan the latest bird that arrived by mail today...I don't think he minded it a bit...presenting lukenlarry's

He's a quiltted owl about 4 inches tall x 1-1/2 wide.

here's my lil' army...they're being mailed out to my swap pals shortly...for the handmade bird swap hosted by dragonmama... i modified the pattern a bit, opting for my own version of the base and adding little pocketses up front and wings.
