Keeping an eye on this swap too, as I love (making) sculptures of animals, bugs and birds (and 2D Tongue)- it's all about timing these days with all those awesome new swaps coming up.

I would love to either sew, crochet of felt a birdie Wink
(I crochet only free-form)

I am torn. I will be starting this one, or the Circus one, the last week of July or first week of August. What do you think?
How long does everything think they would need for crafting? Three, maybe four weeks?

... there's an ocean creature swap too???

(eep! I can't even go and see, I love octopi so much!)

I can't believe in how many tempting swaps there is going on right now!

I think 4 weeks for crafting for all swaps, a medium and up, is good- you know, just in case if something happens or inspiration takes time or something fails last minute and needs to be redone?

I'm thinking 4 weeks.  That pelican stuffie that I posted took me a wee bit to make, because he has LOTS of pieces.  He's a quilting pattern.  I will definitely sign up when this swap opens, as I just received feedback for the Enchanted Forest/Woodland Creatures Swap.  So, I only have 2 swaps in progress right now.  And, they are swaps w/a long crafting time.

It would be fun if those who has pet birds to post pics to share of them as well.  Smiley
I will keep an eye out for this one so I can join.
For years I had budgies. I LOVED my budgies. I had, Peet & Repeat (identical common greens), Zoe (light yellow albino who ruled the roost), Dot (green and yellow), Joques (Green & yellow) , Swayzie (my big baby who was huge and gorgeous turquoise), and I miss them terribly & hubby isn't a bird kinda guy unfortunately. *sniff sniff* Cry

Me too!!! I have had budgies since elementary school but got rid of my most recent ones only a few years ago mostly because my honey and the rest of the family was just annoyed with them. It's hard being a bird person in a non-bird house. Okay, in all fairness, they're not anti-bird as much as they are anti-birds as pets. No one could tune out all the chirping. I've had budgies, cockatiels, doves, finches, and a rosey bourke too. I do miss having birds around. My honey rolls his eyes at all the bird-themed art I have hanging up but alas, they don't chirp, so they are staying! Cheesy

lol, yeah, they can get lively at times for sure...but where others were calling it 'racket' I loved it cause it was like I was tuning into their conversations which at times were spirited. Smiley
I had a dark sewn cage cover that I would put over them at night and they would quiet down and I would get tickled cause in the morning I would walk in there and hear them beneath the cover whispering a conversation not disturbing a soul. haha then the party was on when the cover was removed!
I am hoping that one day I will wear him down and he will agree to one bird....until then I am catering the outdoor bird community banquet in my yard  Grin
