Looks great!  We've got Northern Cardinals where I live, but I don't see them very often.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Gorgeous - it looks so firm and sculptural, I thought it was sculpted with polymer clay at first.

Thank you!

Looks great!  We've got Northern Cardinals where I live, but I don't see them very often.

We get a lot of them here once fall starts and my neighbour feeds them also so we get a great view Smiley

Thanks, it is felted firmly which makes it look that much more real I find, especially with the size and then the weight being so light... like a bird Smiley
