As you can see the ground is taking shape. It's rather boring to stitch and I have to confess that I made a mistake but couldn't find where the mistake was, so I just fudged it! I figured that if I can't find the mistake, no-one else will....you'll just have to promise not to tell anyone about it! Promise?
On to non stitchy news....
Ever had a time when wanting to help meant doing absolutely nothing? It's awful! Every instinct makes you want to help but doing something would make things worse. This is the dilemma I faced last week, I just had to sit and watch while the drama unfolded.
I looked out of the window as I heard such a commotion with the birds and found this...
The poor little fella had fallen out of his nest! He couldn't fly and his poor mama was beside herself! She was screeching and hollering and being very protective. It was amazing to see how she chased the other birds away. The poor little thing was flapping his stubby little wings and exhausting himself.
I didn't get too close to him as I didn't want to frighten him or to upset his poor mama!
It was so hard to watch. I kept my eye on him all day and he eventually managed to get himself into a lilac bush where he somehow managed to jump or fly to the bottom branch. We left out some water and bird food in the hope that he or mama could get to it. Next morning we could hear him calling, and Mama was still close by! Every morning we have gone to check on our little friend, but the last few days we haven't seen him, only heard him. But yesterday, we saw the little bird and he was able to fly! Now he just has to perfect the art of landing! I've got the camera at the ready hoping to get a picture of him.
So, thanks for visiting today, and I appreciate all your comments.
Until next time...happy stitching!
