Today is United Nations Day. It is also my birthday. Many people have expressed kind thoughts for today. Thank you! Special thanks to Torrie who knows what I like! By the way, I am letting the orange peel I made on Saturday dry out. It is a bit soggy at the moment but that won't stop me! Even without chocolate, it is very good.
Today is also a regular day. I cleaned the bathrooms. Stasi suggested someone else do it for me. But alas, there isn't anyone around here willing to do it. DH never thinks they need cleaning anyway.
I got the pin cushion and one side of a scissor fob stitched for the Pioneer Girl's Book Etui. I cut out some of the pieces of comic board. Putting this together will be a challenge. But it will be so cool when it is done.
I found out who the designer is of that wonderful bird. It is Jenny Adin-Christie. My favorite!
I also found out lots more about this bird. He is a Wren. His mouth is a thread cutter. Under his wings is a needle page. His body is made with a 3D printer. His beak and feet are bronze. Wow. He has a stitched hillock he can stand on. The hillock can be the top of a wooden box that can have a tape measure mechanism in it. Be still my heart. Not only all that, but I can order him! I promptly did just that. Then I had a stab of guilt. I already have an unfinished Jenny kit. It is the Owl and the Pussy Cat book cover. So I took out the parts. I was being held back by fear. I was afraid of the eyelets on organdy. That sounds so silly. How can you be afraid of eyelets? So I dove right in and started them. So far, so good. I have a new goal, to finish the Owl and the Pussy Cat before the Wren arrives. Just being able to order the Wren feels like a fantastic birthday present.
I am going to make an angel food cake and ice it with my favorite fudgey frosting.
I''m a very lucky girl!
