HI everyone, and thanks again for all your good wishes. I have decided to take Annette’s advice and not “roll the dice” this week. With a week chocker-block with appointments and a caravan club weekend away (on Friday) to look forward to, time wise it didn’t really work this week. Sitting in my sewing room at the back of the house just didn’t appeal to me – so I didn’t!
But I have managed to a little quiet stitching, sitting outside on the patio with the birds keeping me company. The bird feeder has been very popular, but the birds kept their distance for a while. They were not too keen on me intruding in the space as I sat quietly at the table. They lined themselves up on the fence and on next door’s roof, waiting to see if I would go away.

They finally got enough courage up to come closer to the bird feeder, playing acrobats as the hung off this feeder and that feeder. There were plenty of Hedge Sparrows, and I was pleased to see native birds too, Wax-eyes and Greenfinches.
All the birds came calling
While the birds were feeding, I was sitting quietly at the patio table doing a little stitching. I’m working on “O is for Ornaments”, part of my Christmas ABC blocks.
And here’s one I finished earlier – “N is for Noel”. These stitcheries are based of Michelle Ridgeway’s Alphabet Noel design booklet.
N is for Noel
My stitching bag will definitely get packed away in the caravan for the weekend, and hopefully I will get a little time to do some more work on the letter O. If not, it doesn’t matter – there is no timetable in place for this project. Hope everyone has a nice weekend too.
