Ok, so I wussed out.
As much as I want do custom work in each bird block and all around the borders, it would sit for years before I would have time.
I decided to go with a panto on the birds. I chose SoHo from Urban Elementz so I could get it done. I kept thinking about having 31 birds, and how many I had to do each day. And it was getting overwhelming. My life is so hectic right now as it is, I don't want to add more to it. I would just go mad insane and run screaming into the woods or something.
So I chose the panto. It kinda looks birdlike even.
Even that didn't go down easily.
I got the panto all lined up and everything and did the first motif. Man, that sucker looked yellow. I forgot to take out that yellow bobbin! Rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip, rip. Bobbin change!
Then I had tension issues. But I got them resolved.
Then the dogs wanted out. Got that resolved.
Then the computer went out and Frank had a report to send out. And when he was on the phone with Cox ........ he couldn't figure out what was the modem and what wasn't.
Got that figured out. They are now appropriately labeled in large print with color coded labels.
Then the dogs wanted out again. How did they get in again?
Then I got confused on which way I was going on the panto and went backwards......geez, rip, rip, rip, et, al.
So I just stopped and let the dogs out again and made dinner.
Tomorrow is another day.
