the birds

remember these guys? they've undergone a stunning transformation with the help of some stuffing and stick-on googly eyes.

to save them from being grounded, my coworker kel (yep, i said coworker) built this magical mobile and they now spend their days happily in faux-flight in the front window of fibre space. you (yes you!) can make your own bird mobile with some scrap yarn and the (free!) flock pattern from knitty.

probably a good time to share that i've gone from dreaming of one day working in a local yarn store, to actually working in one. the business of this chickadee has slowed down a bit as more time squishing yarn and stocking shelves means less time in front of the sewing machine. but never fear, this chickadee will be here...and if you stop in fibre space be sure to say hi. and keep an eye out for chickadee activities around town too.

I love the mobile....the birds in flight are so sweet. I have a feeling a lot of other people will find it a happy and pleasant thing to look at.......kd
