Well my first bird back wasn’t a complete success but I did get it done. In the process, I forgot to change my foot, needle placement and stitch length. Apparently I wasn’t doing so hot before I stopped making birds either. This one was already cut and somehow I ended up with extra pieces… And it’s actually prettier than this, my “real” camera wasn’t charged. Clearly I was not prepared for bird making this evening.
Tonight’s bird is for my co-worker Puja. She lives not far from me and after some car troubles last weekend, I helped out by giving her a lift to work one day this week. It was nice to have someone to chat with on that very long drive. The thing I like about Puja is that she truly cares for you. She doesn’t go all sappy on you and she often tells you like it is. But it is 100% from the heart. Even given the difficult week she is having, she took the time to give me some encouraging words and “momma” me a bit today. And to be honest, I needed it. I do listen, occasionally.
I am taking it easy this weekend… on Puja’s orders.
