Love that bird too. Think my satin stitch skills are improving... it hasn't got a wonky beak!
So enjoyed stitching this basket. It's even got Thistles... for Scotland! Maybe I should have done them purple.....
I think her laugh could be hysteria!
Now you know I've never had children. No bothers or sisters, nephews or nieces. No friends with children either but.... I am hoping to pass muster as a surrogate Granny. Would you trust me with your child? Don't answer that!
Last time I did any baby sitting things got a bit tricky. The little girl (4) wanted to play nurse.... she had yards of bandage... cute. Her brother(6) wanted to be a wild west cowboy... I was up for all of it! Good job their mum was in the kitchen preparing dinner at the time because half an hour later I was underneath the piano... hog tied to the legs with bandage... a gun at my head and someone trying to take my temperature!
Think I can kiss goodbye to passing 'responsible adult' test!
OK... that's all folks! Things are pretty quiet here... for now. Stitching may have to take a back seat to some real gardening in the next few days. I still have that huge bale of bark to deal with not to mention weeds that are taking on jungle proportions.
So... have a great week and I'll see you soon....
