Well today started with having to feed my bird friends ..... I was being watched by Albert the racing pigeon who was looking at the feeding table going" where's me grub eh ???? "
so I had to duly go out armed with the bird seed and fill the Chinese containers that I have been using in the bad weather ..... the water one, once it was frozen came out like an ice cube ...so it was easier to re fill every day ... did look strange though having huge ice cubes on the borders hehehe.
I came back in, to find said Albert had tipped up the container and spilled the seed all over the table and was furiously eating as if he was starving which if any body ever gets meet him would see that he is no racing pigeon at all hahaha ... I am amazed he can even fly ..lol
Well I just watched him for a few mins and could see all the other little tweets lining up to get in there when they could ...lol then I settled down to start day thirteen of the challenge and guess what ............. its another LHN chart
It is "The Rain Fell" .....I am stitching it on a 28 count jobelan from Polstitches called icy waters quite apt really considering the charts about rain ..lol ;0
It really is a beautiful fabric to stitch on and the colours are really scrummy bluey greens :) I'm stitching the piece with the recommended crescent colours but with the anchor alternatives to the dmc threads :)
so here is today's photo :)
|The Rain Fell LHN day 13|
I didn't want to stop stitching on this one .... I was always, as a child out in the rain with my wellies on, pushing my pram and my teddy's n dollies up and down our street holding my brolly up too .....I can remember my wellies were red though and small, so when I puddled jumped the water came over them ..lol
I just hope my hands hold out till the end of the challenge though as they are rather swollen n sore to boot too atm ....... I wouldn't mind but I've only been stitching a couple of hours per day.... but only two more days to go then I can have a wee rest hopefully ..lol .
Ok I'd better finish this and say t.t.f.n and see you tomorrow .... happy stitching where ever you are :)
love mouse xxxxx
