Birdie

My Berry Bandit bird has been sitting across the room begging to be stitched for over a month.

 Poor naked birdie.  So I picked him up yesterday.  I had seen him on other blogs and was jealous that I hadn't had a chance to work on him.  I dug out the directions and started.  It was fun but my index finger is a bit sore today from that crewel needle.

I have to watch myself because I have a tendency to take shortcuts and say "Nah, I don't have to do it that way."  Birdie is coming along nicely.

Then closest to my stitching chair is Monica's skirt.  So I put a few stitches in it.  This is also an enjoyable stitch.

I didn't walk at all yesterday.  I had plenty of excuses.  But when I went to the Y today, it was hard getting my steps in.

Amy Mitten is sending out the Queen's Crown kit on Monday and the instructions will be posted on Thursday.  It may take a while to get it in the mail but it is nice to have something to look forward to.
I'm tempted to start reading another book,  We'll see. . . .

  2. Both of those projects are very pretty. I am amazed at the detail on that little bird.
