For the Birds finished

Just a quick post, as I’m still not really in blogging or chatting mode right now.  I woke up feeling the best I had all week, and headache-free which is a minor miracle this week … then a phone call from Fraze’s Dad killed all that, my thoughts are back in turmoil, and my headache has returned … roll on GP visit, is all I can say, ‘cos it didn’t take much at all to knock me back down again!  Today at work is not going to be a fun shift for my first day back!

Anyway, here’s my finished For the Birds – the chart will be winging its way to a blogging pal soon, as I know she loves DT designs, and doesn’t have this one.  The colours are a bit more ‘drab’ in real life than I would have liked, but it’s still a nice project – not sure how I’ll finish it, probably just add it to the ‘framing pile’ for later, I guess.

For the Birds – the Drawn Thread
Fabric:  32ct natural Belfast linen
Threads:  As recommended (Needle Necessities & DMC)

Tomorrow Mum arrives, and we’re having a Mother’s Day lunch as soon as we get home from the airport, before I head off to work.  Then next week it’s ‘all go’ I guess … although I’m on overnight shifts, so it might be a week of going slowly.  And now I need to go visit Fraze’s Mum next week some time as well, as she’s in hospital at the moment, so I’m not sure how I’m going to fit that in as well, as it’s on the outskirts of the city at the other end of town, and I’d have to come home again to drop Mum off before going back into work – oh well, something will work itself out.  I also need to go there when I’m feeling really good, as sometimes it can be hard work smiling through the moaning and carry-on even when I feel 100% perky (I won’t go into further details here).

  1. Lovely finish Anne! Sorry about Fraze’s Mum – I hope you can work something out with the visits. Enjoy your time with your own mum, glad she’s coming over to help you out {{{{Hugs}}}

  2. Great finish! You ripped through that one pretty quickly. 🙂 Re: Fraze’s mom, just remember that you need to take care of yourself first. Make yourself a top priority. You can always send a card or give her a quick phone call instead of visiting in person. Or take your mum with you to help.
