Oh darn, vacation is over already and back to work today. That went entirely too fast.
Here is an updated pic of my "Ellen Birdseye". I was so hoping to have it done but I need one more thread, #611. LOL I must have a cazillion DMC threads but not a 611 among them. I am going to make a special trip to Joanns just to pick it up today. Doesn't that just drive you crazy when you are missing one thread. It drives my husband crazy that I have to drive 40 miles there to get it. LOL Of course all will not be lost, because I get to look at other goodies there, like fabric.
I tried taking pictures of my work in different light so I can really share the mottling of this fabric. It is so pretty.
For those who asked what fabric it is, it is DAYS GONE BY by Silkweavers. I just love how this one came out and wish I would have bought a few more pieces at the same time.
Thank you all so very much for all the lovely comments on my work and my grandchildren. I really appreciate them. You are all so kind. Grandchildren are the best. I have so much fun with them.
Something happened yesterday and I wish I had taken a picture I don't know why I didn't except that I just didn't think of it at the time. My husband and I were in our storage shed looking through things and we found a big nest. First thought was horror thinking some awful animal had made a nest in there so I was ready to run. But DH said there was nothing in it, whatever was had surely gone. The nest was made up of all sorts of stuff but what thrilled me the most was it was filled and weaved all over with colorful threads. They were all weaved in pretty patterns and I was fascinated. My husband got rid of it so no other animals would make a home in it. I was laying in bed last night and I thought DUH! why didn't I take a picture to share. I wish I had. Well, now I know where all those little threads go when I toss them. How smart those little animals & birds are. I can picture them sitting and weaving with all the little threads. I am going to save more and toss more in the woods for them. Imagine trees filled with colorful nests. What fun.
Have a good day everyone. xoxo
