String of Birds
Do you remember these? Almost two years ago, I made lots of these birds. Since then, they've been sitting in my "unfinished" basket as I hunted for the right cord to string them on.
At Michael's the other day, I found some nice hemp cord that had just the look I was after. Using wooden beads, I strung the birds about 6" apart and made a small beaded tassel to weight the end.
While I wanted to hang it from the ceiling, away from the wall, I could imagine that it would prove too much temptation for the cats, so I hung it against a wall near my entryway, hoping it would escape their attentions.
It wasn't long and before it attracted their attention anyway! At first it was all innocence.
But then, Miss Mollie had to have a go at it. She'd have carted the whole strand away if I'd let her!
And then Thomas sent it flying!
So for now I've looped it up against a nail in hopes of keeping it in one piece. I hope that with time, it won't attract quite so much attention! I must admit that as it hangs now, it's not quite how I'd imagined it looking!
