The Angry Bird Isn't So Angry These Days


 Thought that I had better post a photo of my Angry Bird who isn't so much of an Angry Bird now but a beautiful handsome fellow.

It has been a while since I posted a photo of Rebecca, but I have had a lot of things going on in my life that have been quite worrying.  My DH has serious health problems.  But they have found out what is causing him to have a "Dickie Ticker" and hopefully he will be ok.


This is Rebecca in full.  I just have to finish off the bottom section, hopefully by the weekend, do the other tree that is on the right hand side and then do some more interesting sewing with the beautiful big carnations and the flowers.

Since I last posted I was the lucky winner of the 50 pound voucher to purchase one of the beautiful Millennium Frames.  I order the 30 inch frame and it is winging it's way Downunder.  When it arrives I shall take a photo of it to show you.  Hopefully it will be next week.  I would like to thank Nicola and also Needle Needs to donating this wonderful prize.  I must say that the night that I found out that I had won this wonderful prize I was so over joyed.  My life was slightly pear shaped at the time.

Wow, you are my inspiration!! I can't believe how much you have gotten done in such a short time. Your Rebecca looks fabulous. I hope my angry bird can be half as pretty as yours. I tell myself the rest of the embroidery is practice for the bird :)

Your samplers are all so beautiful. I've just been going through your earlier posts as well, and you have quite a collection of gorgeous pieces you've stitched. I think your bird on Rebecca Cullin looks fantastic, just as I think all the work you've done is outstanding. Congratulations to your son.
