It’s only just dawning on me how much I'm getting into bits of dead stick. Just refer to the previous doodling-with-ink post or the indoor tree thing. Now, I’m not entirely sure how the Mr was convinced to drill a whopping great HOLE IN THE WALL at the end of the hall, but he was. So we have permanent accommodation for a flock of birdies – at least until they fall off their perches.
The birds were crafted in a flurry of inspiration, after spotting the beautiful bird mobile by Spool Sewing. The pattern has been blogged about endlessly – probably because it is a fab easy-peasy freebie. However, to achieve the mobile hanging/balancing act/physics milarkey, you require either some impressive Mission Impossible style manoeuvres or an additional ten pairs of extremely patient hands. Which is probably why I got to like my stick so much.
Edit: Craft Schmaft so knows how to do birds on a wire and obviously gets the physics thing. Check out her sweet owl mobile. She also likes sticks.
