What you ask does this line up of feathers have to do with Cactus Monday??
What I did was take a part of a brick and drilled a hole in it. Then I just stuck the end of the rib into the hole. Voile, a stand was made and I like they way the feathers appear.
Happy Cactus Monday to all of you Cacuteers. For more Cactus fun go to Teri's Painted Daisies.
