The cardinal has leaves and berries.
For once I didn't fling beads all over the room when trying to pick them up. It may have had something to do with the fact that the holes on this particular batch of beads were large enough for me to use a size 26 tapestry needle instead of a beading needle.
About my skills with beading needles, nothing needs to be said. Primarily because I have no skills with beading needles.
