The awesomeness has been opened. Behold... Sheldon the Shoe-bill stork! He is so wonderful. I LOVE the teeny ribbon tie. It didn't even occur to me to decorate the plaque. I want to do this swap again next year and start gathering a whole collection of faux taxidermy for my wall. I love him so much. Thank you cabaute!!

Cute! They have matching fur.  Cheesy It looks like it is wrapped with fuzzy yarn. That's a smart way to skip the faux fur fabric.

Yay, he arrived safely!  He's actually covered in strips of frayed fabric... I couldn't feel my fingertips toward the end of the project, but I am very happy with the outcome!!

And ooh ooh ooh, my item from artsycandice is out for delivery TODAY (I'd tracked it yesterday and was a bit deflated because it showed the estimated delivery as Friday!)...  Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!!!  Cheesy

It's here, it's here (she's here?  he's here?)!!  I suppose we'll deem her a 'she' for the time being, since s/he arrived wearing a necklace... But I feel that s/he may be a bit like Eddie Izzard and dress in whatever way suits their mood!    Cheesy Cheesy

Allow me to present Faustine (or Festus, when s/he's in boy mode)



Here's a nice profile view



S/he'd come loose from the mount, so maybe the mount goes like this?



I have a solution in mind for that (based on my own challenges with doing the same thing!), so I should have it fixed up and ready to show off in no time   Smiley

Thank you so much, artsycandice, I love her!

Sheldon is so funny.  I love his fur, it looks real.  And its such a lovely shade. 

Oh, thats a neat fox too. 

I think we should definantly do another one of these swaps next year.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Oh no! Sad I intended for the plaque to point down to better display any accessories. I had hoped to put a tie on it but couldn't find one that was the right size. I love the Eddie Izzard thought, I am a huge fan! I had the same he/she feeling too. Smiley

Ah, cool!  I thought that direction was right, but then it looked pretty good the other direction, too, so I wasn't sure!!
