I found this fly (alreedy deed) the other day. I admit I did consider using he and his friend's wings for more time flys/flies puppets. But I couldn't do it. No, I'm afraid I'll have to source wings elsewhere or make 'em.
In any case, my plan is to make future flys closer to his smaller size and fit them into the watch part vials that Halfland's Official Naturalist graciously sent to me. I'm hoping to get really swift at making them so that I can make one for each and every person who took their precious time to make their marvelous puppet contribution to Halfland's underwater scene.**
It's a small gesture to hopefully convey my gratitude to everyone who gave so greatly of themselves. These will be limited edition numbered gifts given to all puppet contributors symbolizing the wish that the time they spent should be returned to them and forever multiplied so they'll have as much as they'd like to do the things they enjoy.
(**I'm toying with skipping my annual holiday mailing this year and spending the time making these instead. They aren't very Christmassy I realize, so I might mail them for a New Years' fresh start. Thoughts?)
