              WOW Beautiful beautiful work. Wasn't someone complaining about froggie toes recently???? I'd sure hate to try and cut those hummer toes. Pat

                    That is one of the best humming bird patterns that I have seen. Is it your own design?

                    Beautiful job, by the way.

                      You guys are so funny... yep, those little feet are the worst part of this piece but I did not struggle too much with them cause I could sand (with my Dremel) any area easily because of their shape.
                      I will pass you appreciation on the cutting to my hubby...he did it all (as he does now for most of my projects)! He is faster and much better then me at the saw and it gives us the opportunity to work together!

                      This is my design or I should say my "layout" cause I used a JGR hummingbird to start with (in one of her book). I modified the bird a little and added the apple blossom.
                      for your comments!

                            Just lovely, Henriette, as always! You did a wonderful revision to the design. I like it much better than the original! I adore apple blossoms since I was born and raised in apple-growing country. The blossoms are just beginning to burst into bloom now, and with the heat wave we're experiencing, they'll be perfect over the weekend (a week before the festival, of course!)

                            Great wood choices, as usual, hubby cut well, and you did your always great job of shaping. Looking forward to whatever comes next.
