Day Ninety-Nine: Oh Dear

Oh, dear.  Tonight I decided to make a darling little nesting bird from Agibail Patner Glassenberg's marvelous book The Artful Bird, only I thought I'd make some 'slight' alterations to the pattern, and use patchwork scraps for the fabrics.
Well, obviously I don't understand this thing about the gussets, those odd pieces that give a two-dimensional shape its third dimension, and my poor little bird has somehow completely lost his head, and is lopsided on his bottom half and keeps tipping over.  And, my studio is now a huge mess.
Clearly, it is time to go to bed, and start over in the morning.
Next time, maybe I'll follow the directions.
Good night, all.
