May you have a wonderful, happy day!

(I have it on good authority the littles have a little something planned.   ;) )

Thank you!

And it would have to be a little something, wouldn't it?   ;D

Thanks, everyone!  And it looks like my book is in the local area and has been transferred from UPS to USPS for delivery.  Now hopefully that means it will be delivered to my office before closing time this afternoon, and not just that it's been delivered to our university post office in preparation for a Monday office delivery.

Laurna, where in the world did you find that narrow trim on mini-Washburn's tunic, or is that just some of your sewing machine's fancy stitching giving the illusion of a woven trim?

Hi Evie, hope you had a good day. I guess the Transport Portal did not work, but it was worth a try. Wash's tunic is edged with a running sewing machine stitch from my embroider machine. I drew with outline of the tunic with a chalk pencil on the fabric. Embroidered the edges, and then cut it out and sewed it together afterword. Wash's was my first attempt, Muir's stitching was fancier and a bit straighter.  ;D

Happy Birthday, Evie! I tried to gift wrap Duncan, but he wouldn't stop wiggling.=o) Enjoy your life of (temporary) retired freedom! 
Here's hoping for a literary year to come!

Happy birthday, Evie!

A little flamingo told me that Bishop Duncan was seen arranging for a surprise birthday feast.  But you didn't hear that from me.   ;D

Eat the cake (even though the flamingo one is almost too pretty to eat) and enjoy your day!

Happy birthday, Evie!

(In amusing news, when I searched Google Images for a cake depicting a lion dormant, the first image was for the cake I posted in Jasta's birthday thread a while back.  :D )
Title: Re: Happy Birthday, Evie!
Post by: Evie on December 05, 2018, 08:45:04 am
Thank you!  And I suspect cakes with a handsome Deryni bishop on them are probably even more rare than cakes with lions dormant!   ;D
Title: Re: Happy Birthday, Evie!
Post by: DesertRose on December 05, 2018, 08:55:01 am
Afraid so, although there is apparently a specific type of cake called "bishop's cake."  :D

ETA:  It's similar to a pound cake, but I think a little smaller, because it calls for a mere half-pound of butter.  ;)

Happy Birthday Evie! 
I've actually made Bishop's cake. It is indeed a very good poundcake recipe. Was remarkably disappointed it didn't turn into Duncan after baking, though.

Hope the next trip around the sun is full of good health, interchangeable doll heads and family prosperity!

Happy Birthday Evie.

Ok no handsome bishope cakes to be found. So I tried for  a medieval barbie doll cake and got this.

Not quite medieval girl, not quite a handsome bishop, and not quite a lion dormant, but--- well, here goes.

LOL, didn't quite hit the mark. LOL
Nevertheless, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I had a lovely dinner party with family and friends, thank you! And here at the office I have a stuffed Porg wearing a party hat and two of my littles, so I guess that counts for a second celebration.  :)
Title: Re: Happy Birthday, Evie!
Post by: Laurna on December 06, 2018, 12:28:53 pm
What the heck is a stuffed Porg in a party hat. LOL

I have to see a picture of this.
Glad you had good celebrations all around.
Title: Re: Happy Birthday, Evie!
Post by: DesertRose on December 06, 2018, 01:08:16 pm
A Porg is a little bird-like creature who featured in The Last Jedi, because they filmed certain sequences on an island full of small birds (puffins, IIRC), and there were too many birds to edit them all out, so they just made in-universe creatures of them, LOL.  Evie has a stuffed-toy version, who was (at least yesterday) adorned with a party hat.

Balance one little on each shoulder, don't you know.  Kind of the opposite to a parrot on the shoulder.  Duncan and Helena getting a lift up on sweet Pudgekin. That must be why he looks so unhappy. :P  ;D

Post by: Evie on December 10, 2018, 01:14:02 pm
Thanks, Judy! He's actually a Porg, which is a creature from Star Wars.  (The island they were using in some of their scenes had migratory puffins that lived there several months out of each year, which they didn't know when they started shooting scenes there, so once the puffins returned, they had to figure out what to do about the thousands of birds in every scene. It turned out to be much less expensive to CGI-mutate them all into cute little alien Porgs than to try to erase them completely and replace the bird-shaped holes with proper backgrounds.)
