Lots of Wool!

Today I am attempting to organize my wool stash.  Like any self-respecting fiber artist, I have WAY too much wool!  I'm hoping a new shelving unit and all these nice tubs will help me get my wool piles under control.

Miss Pink Bird

Lots of projects in the works and many more ideas bouncing around in my's a look at Miss Pink Bird (and her little travel companion) who recently flew to California to live with new friends. 

Thought it might be fun to document the creation of Miss Pink - here she is in progress.

Wire legs

Forming the body

 Adding the head, and next - the tail

Adding the beak - begins with a fluff of wool and is slowly formed and shaped

Wings and crown are made separately and attached

Details are stitched on, and she is complete!
