TaDa--Charlie Chickadee! UPDATED!


I have finished Charlie Chickadee! As before, I cut my canvas, and used a foam craft material to wrap both the canvas and black satin backing around. I then glued the dowel and his feathers in place. Next I attached the black gimp around the outside to cover the edges. Unfortunately, I used a white background to take the photo, and did not realize the bottom feathers did not show up as they are white. I will re-shoot it tomorrow and change the picture then. Feel free to check back and see the difference!

He does have an impish personality! It shows. Just like my Charlie - the human one. (most of the time) Now - bring on the blue bird!!

How cute he is! I can kind of see the white tail feather, but it'll be fun to really see it against a dark background. Very nice job, Pat. Your mom is going to be a very happy camper!

Hi Pat,

He's adorable!

I can see the white feathers in the closeup picture but they will show up brigher against a darker background so I'm looking forward to seeing the updated picture. :-)

He's a very elegant bird with his black tail and beads!

oh, WOW! Now I can really see the black and white details. Great job, Pat. It is going to be very hard to tell which is my favorite bird, now. Just the bluebird is left, right?

Jane, wondering which is her favorite and realizing that --durn it!-- Pat will just have to send them all to me.

I do only have the bluebird left to do for Mom. I will be starting him, but am also waiting on a couple of fibers. Sorry, Jane, I can't send any of them to you! Mom is watching you know!
