Imaginative name, huh? Cheesy

It's a wee little fabric bird with wire legs, resting up on a decorated wooden spool. I used some of my favourite sequins and beads to decorate the top and luckily they match the thread perfectly. More luck than judgement! Cheesy







Thanks for looking! Smiley

Aw, cute!  I love that you actually used a full spool of thread.  It makes it look very "realistic".  Wink
