It's pretty easy to form a friendship in high school with someone when both your last names are phallic references. It takes a little more work to keep the friendship alive when one of you uproots and resettles states away.
I made these little twirly bird tea towels for a friend to complement her (what I imagine to be) darling 1920s studio apartment. I stitched the birds facing opposite directions so they can look at each other and chat while hanging. I also had to free hand much of the purple bird. That led to slight wonkiness, but overall, not bad. Pattern here.
Happy Birthday, Dickey!
