1 little, 2 little… 16 little birdies…

I’ve been working on these birds for xmas… I always have this problem, I WANT to do more than humanly possible.  So when I start working, I usually work “breadth first” – a computer term used in search algoritms which implies doing a little bit of each one instead of completing any one of them first.  So here it is 5 days before xmas and all I had was the cut-out pieces of a dozen birds!

a pile of birds...

Well, it’s now 4 days before xmas and I have 16 assembled birds that need to be stuffed and hand-stitched to close, so I’m definitely close!

yup, there are 16 of them...
