Sweet Val sent me this little Hootie fellow as part of her Toy Society project. The girls and I were thrilled! We took him to a local park to find him a new home.:) She attached a note stating that he was FREE! (Yippee!).
She also sent me this lovely little birdie for my Happy Tree! Hurrah! Thank you Val!
This is my current project. Do not attempt unless you have TONS of time. I am going to endure, although Jeff says I will not be finished before next Christmas! If you want to join the fun get to Hobby Lobby and buy a ton of sequins (colors you love), a ton of sequin pins, a ton of seed beads and/or tiny inexpensive "pearls" (I used both) and a styrofoam tree shaped form. **Note- In order to reinforce the beads and sequins dip the pin tips in Elmer's glue and also apply glue on the styrofoam. It's fun but time consuming. I know it will be so pretty WHEN I finish.:)
