Pickfords found and delivered my sewing table last week!!
Huge improvement in my playroom, actually having a table out there. Tony also bought a heater as the heat pump just doesn't get that far!
I'm still not settled though, there is too much still in boxes! It took me an age to find my roller blade the other day and I gave up looking for elastic, I went out and bought some!
I need another set of drawers or a dresser in there.
I keep on reminding myself that it will all happen, eventually.
So, while I still can't settle with my sewing machines, I have been working on my cross stitch.
I didn't get to spend as much time as I had hoped with her, but at least I did manage to catch up on all the back stitches.
All the leaves and flowers are now looking more defined as are her crown and hair pins.
I spent a lovely afternoon with David Attenborough yesterday getting that done. I think he may be good company this afternoon too, I want to see if I can get the fan completed today.
I always have company when I sit and stitch. I have placed feeders outside both the playroom and sitting room windows. They are very busy with dozens of birds visiting.
Of course, whenever I try to sneak up with the camera, most of them fly away.
Here you see a native bird called the white/wax eye.They arrive in flocks of over a dozen. What a quarrelsome bunch! There are constant spits and spats over whose turn it is on the feeder and how long is polite to stay! then the whole lot take off in a hurry when the starlings arrive.
There are also sparrows and goldfinches who visit regularly too.
I love to see them all, but the goings on amid the white eyes is the most entertaining.
