My finishing isn't brilliant but I am very happy with the way it turned out for a first attempt. Thank you, Christine, for your brilliant instructions. It was funny as both Helen and I did this finish this time! This month's challenge piece is The Caron Keeper so I'm looking forward to stitching that one:)
Tuesday evening was Ink Circles Sea Stars night and I'm pleased with the progress I made. Finished the motif I was working on last week and stitched a few fish!
Thank you for all your hugs and kind words following the passing of our beautiful budgie Billy. The girls are heartbroken and I just keep thinking about him and wishing he was still here. The house is just not the same without him as he was such a character. We loved him and he gave us so much love in return and always brightened the worst day. My Dad used to breed budgies as did DH's uncle so we have both grown up with budgies in the family ( I had one of my own too) so we've always had a love for them. Now the girls have too. Billy was our second one. The first one was 7 when he passed so it was quite a shock to loose Billy at just 4 but they are prone to strokes and we knew that. We had no warning as he had been fine all day, being his cheeky, mischievous self. We have decided that, although we can never replace him and we'd never get another like him ( he was one in a million) we are going to get another one.
