Nothing new here. I finished my goose.
I have a boo of all birds but there wasn’t a goose so I used a swan as a pattern to do most of it. None of theses birds are designed to stand up they are made to be played with and carried around by children. So he doesn’t stand alone very well.
He did pass the first step anyways. Patty came last night for a visit and she knew he was a goose so I guess the kids will like him. I also finished the wedding cake and that came out good.
Miss Mousie looked it over and passed it for the wedding.
Of course in the song it isn’t Miss Mousie that gets to eat the cake. A big black snake comes in and eats it all up. I still have to make the snake. In fact I need to make two of them, a black one for this song and one called Rainey for the Swagman. He is a nightly colored very big snake for that story.
Last night I finished the cow.
Or I should say almost finished the cow I still have to add the tail. She at least looks like a cow except she has no udder and I am not going to try to put one on. I had to use a Yak pattern for this one and with a few changes I think it came out alright. This morning I am working on the hermit for the Swagman story and all he needs is a mustache so I’ll show you him later today. This morning we had to go down to BJ’s to get a roast to cook and slice for Patty. She and Becca are taking the kids all camping next week so needs sandwich material. I will make the buns tomorrow and cook them Saturday. They leave Sunday and will be gone a week. The forecast is for nice weather in Jacksonville so I hope they are right. Have a great day.
