In The Garden




Somewhere in the garden
there is a pretty nest,
a little bird is sleeping in,
enjoying this bit of rest.

And then a papa bird flies in
looking rather stern,
we've been singing since sunrise
get up and do your turn!


Featured: a little cushion in the making

  13. Lovely work, Amalia. Are you going to show the finished piece? ♥

  14. I really like it. I'm guessing it's an original art piece. I like all the varieties of stitches you used. Do you always use the whole (6 strands) of floss when you embroider?

    ReplyDelete

    1. No, I never use 6 stands. I usually work with 2 stands for a delicate stitch and occasionally 3 for cross-stitch.

  38. Oh, this is so funny, Amalia, and what would I do without the birds singing to me every day. They are so special to me and I often take pictures of them while I'm at the park. Such a delightful post.

    I added you to the list on my post today, as you are dear to me as well. Have a peaceful Sunday.

  61. Hello Amalia :)

    That poem reminds me of my grandfather that used to wake my mom up each morning at 6:30 and tell her she was sleeping the day away :)

    I don't blame anyone for keeping lovely treasures passed down from beloved relatives and the collars are lovely.

    Your trip to Scotland... oh so lovely... it make me want to go there even more now! I love the pictures you took and the Highland cattle are so cute! We had peacocks where I grew up in California :)

  64. The handwork is so sweet and the poem just right for it. It would be a nice nursery rhyme to teach a small child!
