The Artful Bird by Abby Glassenberg has oodles of bird designs and patterns and I've been wanting to try my hand at making one for quite some time. Taking an old piece of curtain material I cut out the body, wings, head gusset, tail pieces and sewed them together. I discovered that doubling up 20 gauge copper wire will work to hold a bird this size and I wrapped the legs first with wool and then with string and low and behold my Curtain Bird stands!
The city of Regina has broken a 57 year snowfall record this winter with receiving over 196 cm of snow. I went out at my coffee break last week to take a picture of the library where I work and all the snow.
