While DH is putting the big tree together, I decided to unpack this guy.
I've always liked his face. He looks so unkept and cold as one would expect to look if living in a snowy woodland. On his back he carries the snowshoes that assist him in getting through the snowdrifts.
To one side he has a big basket of nuts.
He is a friend to all wildlife as evidenced by this snow-frosted bird sitting calmly atop another basket.
DH is calling me. He wonders if I want to "make it easier" by fluffing out all the branches now as he inserts them into the tree base.
Make it easier on whom? HE is the one who is supposed to be fluffing it out as he puts it together (which I just told him). If I intended to do the fluffing, I may as well have put it all together myself!
Geez, I mean, how hard is it to stick the unfluffed branch into each hole? I've already done the fluffing on 8 other trees. (big rolling of my eyes here)
Off I go to help the poor dear.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
