The other week Charlene took my Chimney Swift home to drill press the holes for me. I got it back, in the mail, taped to a bookmark looking as though it were flying through trees, always the artist! I still needed to file the edges and polish it up.
After getting it all shiny I started loading head pins. I had some nice crystals in black, gray and clear that I felt were appropriate for a swift. Next time I'll break out of realistic colors, but for now I wanted the real McCoy.
