Once upon a time there were two echidnas. They came from very far away. They like to sit and watch the birds through the window.
When they saw this chair - which I made for a friend - they wanted to know where that came from…
I told them it came from our Glowforge friend Victor, @designvh619, from his Mission Bedroom designs which I bought.
Well, they wanted two of the chairs, please.
Overnight they slept on it some and decided that they had always sat next to one another - for a very long time - and they didn’t want to be separated by being in two chairs. Could I make a bench, please (they are very polite).
So, hoping Victor wouldn’t mind, I adapted his design at the echidnas request. They were happy… except… what about Sheila, who always sits with them. She no longer fit sitting in front of them (tugged under to keep warm)… she was falling off the bench. So Sheila needed her very own perch. So I adapted one arm rest.
Everyone is happy now!
How sweet! I love that story. (Now they need a table for a tea party.)
Of course they could be viewed as hedgies, but they have always been echidnas to us.
They do look a bit like hedgies…are the two types of critters related?
Hedgehogs don’t lay eggs…
No, what @eflyguy says…
These ones hang out with a platypus (not in the photos), hence, they are echidnas - same continent at least.
I think they need a table, tea set and potentially a house to live in…
Better not give them any ideas…
(But I first read that as “two enchiladas”.)
So glad you were able to accommodate them and make everyone happy!
I’ve always found it fascinating that the platypus, and echidnas, lay eggs, yet are mammals… species diversity is a wonderful thing!
Adorable! Those are some cool upgrades. And I believe Victor is working on a living room set, so there could be a coffee table for the tea party in your future.
Adorable! So nice of you to accommodate them!
They are very pleased indeed!
