I believe my Evolution comments may have ruffled some feathers: the comments were not meant to upset, rather they were there to impress on you how badly I felt (and feel) the human race is dealing with being at the top of the food chain: in how we treat the world, the other species that occupy this world and especially how we treat each other.
I wasn't out to change your beliefs, or push mine on you....but I am still not going to watch the news!
It was a sunny day today on the whole and that makes a whole difference. Hubby took me out to Roscommon town and I had a shuffle around the shops and walked a fair bit actually but it left me feeling so much better for it.
I felt quite ill and so my head jumped to the conclusion 'bone metastasis'!
Hubby said 'pain killer reaction'.
He took me out for some lunch and I felt much better.
Pain killer reaction it was!
Apparently the stuff going on in my head is quite normal post C....so I guess I just have to get one with it and hopefully I will be come desensitised to it all sooner rather than later.
Now, on a brighter note.
Elaine my super-stitcher has sent back the latest Holmsey and Fergus chart which will be up for release at the end of the week.
She has done an amazing job though as usual the light wasn't perfect for taking the photo, it has still come out quite well.
I wanted a more delicate look than with the previous charts. A freshness and delicacy fitting of the time being celebrated and I'm thrilled with the almost watercolour-pastel effect. Lovely. I hope you agree. I am going to finish this one as a pin-keep I think.
This is stitched in DMC on Cashel linen Flax. Stitch count = 102 x 61
And it is sooo perty.
It will be sold on my etsy shop (or through my blog) with a story which may explain why Holmsey looks a little too plump and why Fergus seems surprised...and who on earth is the new arrival in the basket?
I have decided that because Fergus and Holmsey are very child like and come with stories, they would quite like to help children out in their own small way.
Ten percent from each chart sold featuring them will go to a child-based cancer charity. I am looking for suggestions for worthy causes and what I will do is chose one from Ireland, one from the USA and one from the UK and I will keep a record of where buyers are from and donate their ten percent to the charity which helps children living with a cancer diagnosis in their own country. So if you are from America, the ten percent will go to an American charity. Does that sound fair?
I hope so.
Right, that is me done for today. I have a pretty maid in my head who wishes to come out and play in the sun...and who am I to refuse her?
Have a great week and thank you all for your kind comments xxxxxx
