Here we are again bidding farewell to yet another month in 2009 and time to see if i achieved everything i was hoping to this month... in a word YES!!
Nice progress on Beatrix and a good start to the fruit and veg piece. Birthday gifts sent and received in plenty of time too :-)
Here's an update pic of 'Home is' i had hoped to get it finished this month but a good book and some days of ill health i didn't even pick up a needle so no surprise that its not complete. June will be the start of a hardanger SAL at Stitch & Stash, there were 2 designs to choose from by Lynda Bodkin at Loopylou Designs, i decided on Christmas Wishes and all being well it will be finished in time for this Christmas.
Four and twenty blackbirds ... well maybe not quite that many but it certainly seems like it with all the noise Mr is making at trying to get the babies to come out for their maiden flight. Here he is (left) complete with a beak full of worms desperately calling them, you can see the ivy on the left in the second pic and where he is hoping they will fly to him... maybe they think its just a bit too far. Two days of squarking (is that how you spell it?) and we're still waiting to see them.
An amazing thing happened this morning,DH and i were sitting at the bottom of the garden on the seat amongst the trees, all of a sudden we heard this purring sound, i thought it was Mr Moe on the fence behind us, but when i turned to look it was a baby squirrel. Did you know they purr like kittens?? I had to check it out, it says so here how cute is that, sure made my day.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend
