Finch me

Hey.  What's happening people?  Not much here.  Just a really bad entire afternoon wasted on this little fricking finch.  I've had distress before when a project would not cooperate, but this bird riled my feathers big time.  And every time I had to make an adjustment, he got a little bit smaller.  Much smaller.  Over and over and if the lighter was in my sewing room, well, let's just say the siren would have gone off.  Instead of discarding or destroying, I decided to allow him to fly elsewhere.  You want him?  Leave your email or full initials in the comments and Thursday evening at 9, I will draw a name, get an address, and set him free.
 
As the others, button on the back to hold a ribbon which can be removed.  The button wasn't sewn on until after it was stuffed and shut since I had planned on an execution, so it may not be dead center.
 
 
Enough ribbon to hang over a large knob.
 
Just untie and adjust to the length required, like shorter on a basket handle.
This is not a perfect finish, may have a little anger misalignment, a little spot of undetected glue, a cat hair, a few obscenities buried in the batting.  But it's free.
 
Fly away you little finch.

I would love a chance to win this finch Marly. I think this looks great. I miss the goldfinches we had at our home. And I was just saying in a previous post that a door knob hanger is an excellent way for me to display stitching in the apartment! :D

Joan said...

I think he looks fantastic and would love to welcome him into my home. My husband has a bird feeder and our favorite visitors are the finches.

Maureen said...

Marly I would LOVE to own something made by you and this fella would be a sweet addition in my little sunroom from where I am presently waiting and watching the backyard for the return of my hummingbirds. I agree with the other commentors....you are too hard on yourself!

DJ said...

I had to chuckle, because I've had days like that, I really can commiserate! I would love your little finch though. I think he looks perfect. (My boss used to say on our "problem projects" at the frame shop....if you can't see it from a galloping horse, it's just fine). I do hope your day gets better! *Hugs* DJ tickledpinkone@gmail.com

Heritage Hall said...

Awww... I cannot believe you can part with that darling creature ...but I would gladly give him a home, obscenity batting and all...Your work is so lovely and you underestimate the appeal of your creations... though hard-won they may seem.

Merilde said...
