I finally finished the Great Horned Owl last night. I'd thought I was done with him before that, but I hadn't added the black stripes on the breast and the boy convinced me that he needed them, even advising me on how to do them. As often happens, the boy was right, and he looks much more complete this way.
It's so much fun to play with the different birds. My arm is getting better, but still tells me when it's had enough, and it's disappointing not to be able to do as much as I'd like to. I still have plenty to keep me busy, though.
