My birthday week.
My ILs gave me this beautiful orchid for my birthday.
And I’m so in love with the morning light in my kitchen window. Too bad I have to look at my neighbor’s cars because they can’t be bothered to park in their flippin’ garage. Where was I? Oh yeah, pretty orchid in the morning light.
I made this little birthday stocking for myself. Too bad it looks so crappy in this photo. Now to actually make it into a stocking.
I took a couple of days off work to enjoy my birthday, so I decided to work on some of my craft projects. First order of business was to give this wicked sharp curved needles a try.
And what did I do with those needles? I worked on putting this pincushion together. My frankenstein sewing will be totally covered by trim (don’t worry). But, while I was working on this, all I could think of was that this looked like a huge cookie/ice cream sandwich. That amused me to no end.
I definitely enjoyed my time off from work. And I got a lot done in my craft room.
