More feathers

There has been further progress on Dreambird, but at 11-1/2 feathers, it’s becoming a bit of a slog. Not only is the weather getting warmer, but the sheer size of it in worsted weight rather than fingering is getting unwieldy trying to flip it around for all of the short rows. So I guess it’s a good thing that it’s nearly two-thirds finished. The rate of yardage used looks like it will only yield 18 or 19 feather segments, but in worsted the size should be decent. Here, the mats are arranged in a 4-ft x 4-ft configuration and the spiral-y shape is beginning to show.
