Today I'm grateful for....

Remember this! Well after the gorgeous Rosalind from Grace Designs asking me if I had gone any further with the little birds I thought that a rainy day like today was the perfect time for round three!
And you know what..........I think I've almost got it the way I want. It's amazing how stepping away from something and trying at a later date actually works!
 All I need to do is just tweak my pattern just a little as I'm not completely happy with the shape, but as you can see it's almost there.
 I remember I had a big issue with the legs. Truth be told I think I was over thinking them too much, trying too hard to get them like the real thing........I remember it gave me a migraine and that's when I walked away. Since then I have made countless little owls with wire feet/legs so all I had to do was keep it simple like the owls.......it worked and this time the bird can actually stand alone.
So today I'm grateful for time, grateful for the lovely Rosalind who asked me to revisit the birds, and I'm also grateful for gorgeous rainy days.....the kind of days which inspire me to sit and create. Most of all I'm grateful this time there was no sign of a migraine!
