Okay, really, could I have any more mechanical problems? Come on cosmos, throw it all on me now.
I won't bore you with the details, but a fluke thing happened with some of my engraving equipment (not a grinder!) and that sets me back a bit while I wait for the new part to arrive on Friday.
I started a new piece today (as best I could, just did the transfer), and yes I'm still working on my own cat pendant. I'm not sure yet if I can show WIPs for the new one, I'll ask. Of course I could for mine if I ever got around to posting pics. Huh!
The good news is I have plenty of other stuff I can work on tomorrow, including washing chickens!
It was a pretty uneventful birthday, which is totally okay. It was a regular work day, and then I went out for a nice steak dinner with my mom and Jan, and sat around and talked afterwards. Got a couple phone calls and lots of emails. I don't care what the numbers say, it was a fine 29th birthday. ;-)
And the new graver sharpener thingy should arrive tomorrow. Woo hoo!!! I am so excited to try it out, and I have ten little blank gravers sitting here waiting to be sharpened! (Into ten different points for different uses).
