I kind of thought I would be done by now. Alas, I am not. I am making head way. I have to put the beak and legs on the left side bird, finish some greenery above it and then the top border....then I will be done.
Close up of the top of the piece. I do have a little more to do. It will all go into the finishing basket. I have a box I need to paint and Briwax. To use for the sewing box. I will probably then keep it by my sewing machine with supplies in it.

Today is the twins birthday. They are 20 years old. They aren't teenagers any more. Hard to believe. I remember when they did turn thirteen. Some monumental birthdays during those years. No body even submitted a birthday list. I think Ed was just glad he was home for Spring Break. Katy will be home on the 15th. I'm hoping she has a snow day tomorrow. When I talked to her tonight, we talked about how to get a snow day. I don't know where this came from but, here's what you do: you put a bucket of ice in the toilet and wear your pajamas backwards to bed. I wonder if she will get her dorm to do it. LaCrosse is expecting 7-11 inches of snow. Ed had a couple of days off two weeks ago when they had a blizzard in Marquette. We just have about 2 inches of ice on our driveway from the little bits we had.
