Well if you change it around a bit and use it for a mother and son.
I do believe in signs like finding the poem........my Dad died 31 years ago when I was 17 but I miss
him like it was yesterday. This isn,t the first time something like this has happened, it hasn't,t happened often but when it does it lifts my spirit and somehow I step back and see the bigger picture or find a answer that up to that point may have eluded me. Friends have told me they find a white feather or see a robin or something similar , that to them that means something and always when they too feel they need a little "lift".......;
Well the project in hand is going well. I think I've spent at least 20 hours , probably more over the last 4 days in there. What started out as one enormous chore is now becoming a labour of love !!!!
I haven,t been disturbed , just left on my own. My husband is retired so it seems that I rarely have time just to be on my own and just think. I have pottered around, cleaned when I can, been ruthless even! I have my throw it, donate it and recycle it bags and feel good ! It's been a real trip down memory lane finding things I had forgotten and things I can,t even remember buying or being given to me. But most of all I have had time to think. Time to be me and not just Maria or mum, and I am liking that feeling and must in the future carve some time out for "me". I realise when family life took over and all the packages that comes with it , it was so easy to forget about making time for me and I think this little haven of mine is going to be the place to make that time.
I hung the cross stitches out to air as advised and it worked , they smell so much better no smell at all
in fact. I have a confession. The pixies was not as dirty as I thought. I really am a dum dum!!! (Lol)
I went through the bag and found it was stitched on cream not white! Yes I know , makes quite a difference. Yet again I have had words with myself! The alphabet bears looked better than I thought in daylight too...here they both are
In glorious sunshine too, even better
I think both are worth finishing
Especially as little man
has asked me too
He likes the pixies too now !
Some before and after pictures
Everywhere was like this!
Haven,t found the table yet"
Do you remember Bill and Ben the flowerpot men?
Here they are on the top shelf
Keeping a eye on me
(Welcome back boys I had forgotten all about you!!)
Just to the top right of the picture is
My dear man is from
And when you press bears tummy
"Come on gorgeous , give us a kiss!"
In a northern accent
Had him years too
And he always makes me giggle, now he looks
Quite happy too.
Not too much planned for today. I am giving my poor old back and neck a rest.
Rain forecast and has already started!
Might, just might , have a look at the pixies
See you soon
