I got 'er done

Barely under the wire, but the bird mobile is hanging above baby M's crib. All is right in the world.


I really thought that I would have this done earlier than hours before the deadline in the crafty slacker contest. I could not figure out how to get the birds perched, so in the end they're hanging with fishing wire, and I think I like that better. They sway and move and "dance." My 2.5 year old even played music for them this afternoon while we assembled the mobile. She will have a hard time not climbing up to make them move, but hopefully they'll survive at least until the baby gets installed in her crib.




And the baby? She's intrigued. Thanks Holly, for the assistance in stitching all those little birds. They were done pre-sewing machine, so lovingly stitched by hand, each and every one.

Thanks gals.

Melissa - you could totally make this - it 's all hand sewn - great project for those last few weeks/months of pregnancy!

You're giving me way too much credit Donna - but I appreciate the vote of creative confidence!
