Other stuff

Contrary to popular belief I have actually been making stuff
I can't say I've been over-productive but nevertheless
a couple of things are on the go
I'm still working on my stitchery and if you don't look too closely
and view it through the Picasa 1960's filter 
it  appears to be coming along nicely! 

  'The Artful Bird' by Abigail Patner Glassenberg
landed on my doorstep today,
 like I need another distraction but it had to be done/ordered!
 The lovely Linda led me astray a while ago by 
sending me a link to Ann Wood
check out the owls
totally fab! 
I want to make stuff like that...
and live in a room with whispy curtains...
really I do...
eventually...
 one day...

Well you've been stitching up a storm...a very lovely storm of pretty stitches!

I like the saying: "put a bird on it"...I've even seen a T-shirt with that one it ;)

I love all your hand stitching. I wish I could do that, but gripping a needle is impossible for me. However, I am so impressed with yours. I look forward to seeing one of those darling birds, too.

I envy your stitching. I don't have the patience for that.

Sweet stitching...have a lovely weekend

Jeanne said...

Margaret, I love your stitching project and you choice of colors too. What are you doing the stitching on? It looks like it has a patterned background. I've got to get back to working on my stitching piece that I never completed. You have inspired me!
