Here is a peak at a bitty sparrow I am making out of antique elephant ivory. She is very sweet to work with but not quite finished. Still she needs some sanding but mostly it is a solution for how she might be worn that is my main concern. A simple string with a bow closure would be quaint but not the most reliable of clasps. I don't want to over power her meek beauty with too many extraneous details or materials.
Since its drearily pouring rain outside I will be spending my day partially at my work bench pondering while sanding through to the fine grits as well as at the oven baking a comforting, chewy loaf of sourdough before settling onto my mat later for Erin's vinyasa flow class at the Yoga Shack. Maybe I will even indulge in a bath and a movie before bed and truly spoil myself. All in the name of health as a head-cold seems to be testing my immunity... bet it can't beat all that self love!
