If they handed out school reports for blogging, guess what mine would say this year!
Could do better!
I seem to be stuck in a once a week trap at the moment.
For someone who doesn't do a lot in the way of paid work, I seem to be far too busy to blog!
That said, here I am now.
First up today a work stand I recently acquired. Yay!
Except it seems to be missing one vital part. I have been in contact with the vendor and hopefully that will be resolved very soon.
Should that not work out, Mitre 10 is within walking distance. LOL
I have found time to do some stitching, though not as much as I would have liked.
Spring has progressed, I have almost completed the top half of the chart now. The area I worked on yesterday is on the left, under the fan. Her hands, sleeves and fan handle made for lots of stopping and starting. I'll be glad to get back to some larger areas of colour. But before I do that I need to get some back stitch done.
We have had some very warm days down here in beautiful NZ. But the early mornings and the nights are cold, with some great frosts, so I've made sure to keep on supplying food for the birdies.
This little chap is a Goldfinch. He is a European import. I don't believe I ever saw one of these on the Isle of Man, but there are plenty of them down here!
Another European import is the sparrow, the fellow sat on top in this image, awaiting his turn on the feeder.
Of course the prize for most entertaining still goes to the local white eyes. Such a lively bunch.
I was sat sewing yesterday and just happened to look up at the feeder to see what was going on, to find a cat sat up there!
He scooted off before I could get the camera.
I might need to put some citrus peels around the bottom of the frame.
