Thank you for repling Sally,Rooferx, my father- in- law [rest his soul] got me making these crafts years ago, I made him a special Eagle for Christmas one year, what was so special about this Eagle I made him was that the wing span on it was 8' 3" wide and we hung it off a tree in his front yard in Willianna La. near Dry Prong, we used ropes to raise it, it would have been easily the largest wind mobile ever made in the World I'm sure, anyway, everyone traveling up and down hwy 167 would see this huge Eagle flying and people would stop by and buy his crafts , so that was my thanks for him teaching me a new craft, I was already good at making stuff so this came naturally to me..... this was something he really enjoyed doing so I picked up the ball and I'm still running with it....He loved my Eagle..I have one with the US flag on it that is most beautiful...Perhaps I will show it off one day.. :D I usually draw all of my own patterns and designs.. :D I have been invited to many crafts shows.. If it has wings I can make it fly..Heck even if it doesn't, made a flying Pig, cow once.. :lol:

I'ld ask ya to make me one, but South Boston has few neighborhood trees, and some punk would steal it if it were in plain sight. Very cool though! ;)

I've got a Canada Goose like that. Can you email me the pattern for the eagle?
