Unfinished work in the Past Week
Well, tonight I couldn't let another minute go by with posting something on my blog! It's been a week since I last posted and I'm filled with guilt at not keeping up with my writing to you all. It's funny that I am always torn between thinking no one is reading my posts....and at the same time thinking important people are depending on me to write something. I tend to believe the latter, whoever is reading what I write is important...to me anyway!!!
The truth of the matter is I haven't written because I have been sick with the "upper respiratory infection" from hell. There's no other way to put it. Couple that with a bout of diverticulitis and meds that knocked me for a loop and I hope you will understand why Bird Nest on the Ground was so quiet. I'm better, but not great yet, just had to step out into the Nest to thank you for your patience. Enough about that!
Because I think you need to "see" something as well as have me write a few words.....I'm going to show you some work that has been neglected for the last week also. I will show you the finished items in later posts, but maybe these little bits of work will entice you to hang around for other posts to come.
There is a basket with blue flowers and red French Knots....I call all my embroidered flowers "Fantasy Flowers" as they really don't look like real ones. These I thought might resemble hydrangeas...in a simple kind of way. The pot is painted on and the background is painted also.
There is a small basket with blue roses done in silk ribbon, more of my beloved French Knots and a vine surrounding the basket. Love doing this type of work, as you know.
Then, there is a basket with pink roses. More silk ribbon. With feather stitching in a circle....don't have clue how this one will be finished up...but, you'll see it later. This one is on a painted background also.
These little "bits" will be pincushions. If you remember a few weeks ago, I wrote that I was in my "pincushion mood." It won't be subsiding anytime soon, I'm sure.
So, there you have it. The past week was lousy. I've lots of unfinished work to do. A visit to the doctor on Wednesday, and catching up to do...in the house and in the Nest. I hoping for a better week. Hope you have one too! Thanks for coming back for a short visit!!! Pat
