Sharing projects....

The first two pictures are of a 3d bird I just made...I got this pattern free from Bettsi McComb blog, "Tenderarts". There are no direction as to how to put it together just the pattern.
So I decided to give it a try....it didn't go so well, I couldn't figure out how to but the other half of the bird and gusset together....I was so upset that when Bryan called I was crying...I know over a silly little stuffed bird......you see I have no depth perception....no not at all....I can't follow written directions...they get all jumbled up in my mind. I've had this problem all my life. Not something I'm proud to admit. If someone shows me how to do something then I don't have a problem. After talking to hubby on the phone, I asked the Lord to help me and then took a deep breath and tried it again and this is how it turned out....not to bad. Like I said there are no directions as to how to put this together so I didn't know where to leave it open to stuff....I did mine at the beak....that's why it looks so funky..lol! These are placemats I made yesterday for my kitchen/dining table....they're reversible. I plan on making some napkins to match.


Share a little creativity with someone today!
