when pigs fly........

You ever keep something hanging around the studio just because you like it or because it is the last one or the only one of something you made?  I sold a couple pigs in planes last month in Cooperstown and they wanted another by last Saturday, could I make one and bring it when I visited?  I did not have enough time to make and fire a new one by Saturday but I had one last one sitting around for the past year where I could enjoy its company. SO, it went to a new owner and I made this and improved, I think, with the windscreen.....

So precious! Green with envy I am!

I often keep things in the house awhile before letting them go. I guess it's the nature of the maker to not want to let go of some things.
