I have been a little busy with Mom's move trying to unpack her belongings and hang pictures, wow I hope I never ever move myself for a long time so much packing and unpacking, I think I will stay where I am at and hope this will last until I live to be 100 years old.
You know I have enough stash to last three lifetimes.
I am so perplexed at my self for the huge mistake I mad on my Scattered Seed Samplers A Token Of Spring, I was going along so well and boom just like someone hit me with a bat, I realized I had made a big and I mean big mistake on counting, the lower half of the Sampler has a row of diamonds, do you think I would sit and look before stitching nope just went ahead and stitched without a care, I had to rip out so much, it is almost enough to make a girl have five margaritas, what would the stitching look like with all that booze in my system? just asking, please forgive me for my comment, I am just so mad at myself, count ten times stitch once, nope not me, just forge ahead and this is what I get.
This is kind of what it looked like before I put in the Basket and Bird and the Diamonds on the bottom and the side stitching, lo and behold I had to rip it all out, as you can see by my little sticky notes, argh and argh again. I do not have a picture of the before ripping.
So I decided to start with the Flowers and Branch's around the Birds, maybe that is where I should have started.
I wanted to get this done before the next installment comes at the end of June, oh well I am doomed until then.
I will be doing the ISHW weekend this Friday, Saturday and Sunday minus a graduation party many miles away.
I am counting the days until retirement, I am getting so excited, just think me with no work load, I have been working since the age of thirteen, I worked on weekends for two years until they found out I was only fifteen, then I found another job and worked there until eighteen, then I went to work for a printing company, worked there for seven and one half years, the company closed down, off to another job as manager for a restaurant, so as you can see I need to retire, I have been working for fifty two years minus two months.
The newest additions to our neighborhood, three baby robins and a cardinal, they are all so sweet, one of the robins was with me in the garden picking strawberries, he/she could fly but stayed with me, I just wish I had my camera with me at the time.
there was a hawk flying around and landed in the tree, when I came out of the patio door in the bedroom to see what all the ruckus was bout he took off, I am sure he wanted one of the babies.
look hard the cardinal in on the rope of the neighbors waterfall fence, by the tassel.
Well that's it for today, I hope all are having a wonderful season of spring and getting loads of stitching done.
