I thought today I would share another love of mine besides beading and sewing and crochet, I also love paper crafts. I made a Quilled Bird using a traced pattern. It was fun. I am going to make six more, but first I am going to add some flowers and branches to this one for a piece of quilled artwork to be framed. But for now I wanted to show off the cute little quilled Robin bird. I just adore birds and love to watch birds. I am backyard bird watcher and feed them all the through the year. I mostly adore finches because they sing so beautifully.
Here above I posted a video of a Finch in my backyard that I taped last year, I think the Finches sing so pretty. Now to see the bird close up you need to click on the video in my blog and then click it again until it fills your full screen and you will see this beautiful bird close up and it's a beauty.
About Kirsten - Kirsten does not have the plecenta previa as first thought by the Doctor. Her regular Doctor was away and when he returned she seen him and he said no that is not what is wrong with her at all. That's good news. He said sometimes this happens to women during the first trimester and goes away. She is into her second trimester now so hopefully this won't happen again. My family all thinks the baby will be a boy, but I say girl, she will find out April 8th the day before my birthday. So that's coming up really quick. I finally doubted myself today if it was a girl or boy, but I still say girl.
Things are moving along quite slowly with my moms situation with her husband, which is not my dad, my dad passed away several years ago and he and my mom divorced when I was 15 years old. He ran off with another woman, that always hurt me because I never got to see him much after that and only spent one holiday with him that was a Easter, but at least my whole family was there that day including my brothers, it had been over 25 years we were all in the same place at the same time, the next time we would all be together again would be in 2003 at my brother Kirk's wedding to a Vietnamese woman. Back to my dad, everybody has pain in their past that hurts really really bad.... right? and this is one of those things for sure, but something good came out of it..... just as sometimes things do, and at the time I was going to an Assembly of God church because I always loved going to church and was singing in the youth choir. After my dad left, my mom and brothers came to church with me and they were all saved. So praise the Lord for Gods Mercy and Grace he has shown upon my family. Eventually my dad was saved to and he is now in heaven!
Just like the clouds in this photo I took the other day near our home, I have learned in life that clouds come and clouds go and one day this cloud that causes much pain in my life will certainly go.
Have a nice Sunday!
