I’ve almost finished making the ‘cat bag’ I posted about previously – just have to add the handle. I’m really pleased with it as it’s something I’ve never done before and I really enjoyed it. Love trying new things.
The lighting is weird in this because I didn’t sort the camera settings, but i like it 🙂
I just realised, after mentioning it in the last post, that I haven’t actually posted a photo of the cross-stitch piece I did for mum’s birthday. Here it is 🙂
Today I’m taking a day off work as I finished writing an essay for my transactional analysis course yesterday 🙂 I’ve started my cat tote bag which I’m going to use for my stitching supplies. I chose it because one of the cats looks like Hafu, and I’m making it look more like her with yellow eyes and a dotty nose.
I’m enjoying getting back to stitching (albeit a different sort) after a month off. Next I need to get Migrant Mother back on my frame after using it for mum’s butterfly.
In other news, the hoards of starlings have returned to the garden and are enjoying the birdbath which makes me happy 🙂
Yesterday just as I finished work I looked into the back garden and there sitting on the garden fence was a female sparrowhawk 🙂 (I didn’t immediately know what it was – Facebook helped!) It was very exciting as it sat there for ages, and even while I opened the door and went outside. Eventually it dropped down into next door’s garden and I lost sight of it. Hoping there’s a return visit – although maybe I shouldn’t hope that for the sake of the wood pigeons and other birds!
So I’m currently working on some cross-stitch gifts which are taking quite a while to complete, hence the lack of updates, but soon(ish) – just hoping I get the big one done in time!
A little treat for today though – we had snow at last today and it was lovely. Our resident squirrel came out for some peanuts. I think I’ll put some out loose tomorrow as they must be hungry to be searching for food in the snow.
