Orange Teapot is finished!


I'm happy how this came out. It was a fun project. The black art board made a wonderful texture for the pottery planter in particular. I have to tell you what happened the other night in our own garden. My husband was grilling steaks for dinner with spatula in hand, when a very determined quail kept coming into our yard. Thinking the bird came to eat my petunias (or was volunteering to be quail dinner), my husband chased him off. And the bird came back in, and he chased him off. And the bird came right back in! I heard multiple peeping sounds and went to investigate. Papa bird was trying to come to the rescue of two chicks caught in my strawberry netting. I helped the day-old peepers out of the netting, but one needed scissors to cut him free. It was so fun! They were as big as my thumb and their feathers were more like soft fur. I hope my handling them didn't deter momma bird from taking them back into the fold...
