A gift for you

Having fun -- time well wasted (with apologies to the Comedy Channel for using their line).

I'm having a blog draw for my birthday on Friday. Friday's child has a birthday that actually falls on my day of birth, which was a Friday! Please leave a comment and on Sunday I will draw a name to send this birdie to.

I made it. It only took 4 hours... well, I'm not very patient with fiddly things and I wanted to make this and it was ultra-fiddly. She's a little unsteady on her feet and a teeny bit lopsided because (a) I had to figure out how to make it; (b) sketched the parts into some haphazard pattern (c) gritted my teeth; (d) pricked my finger countless times. [She is very kind and lovable, though.]

But being stubborn I pushed myself until it was done.

    What a sweet little bird. I'm not a Friday's child, but a Saturday's child. But I do still love birds and I love your blog. It's one of my favorite places to visit.

    I wish you a very happy, very sweet birthday.
