Flapping Parrot page 2 done!

I finally finished page 2 of Still Life with Parrot (aka Flapping Parrot). Here it is!

Before:

After:

Quite a difference. And you can see just a little peek of the parrot starting to appear in the lower right hand corner.

Over Christmas I stitched a chicken table topper for Handsome Helpful Fiancé but I haven't taken a picture of it so I'll do that another time.

In other news, I joined an AAN mystery Halloween SAL - my first one! It starts in February so I'll update as I finish each part.

Life has been a little tough right now. Things have been going on at work that are bad news and are making me question whether or not I should stay there. Also been having problems with the post office. They claim to attempt delivery on guaranteed packages when, in fact, they haven't, and I'm having a difficult time getting the money back. So that's fun. Basically, 2014 has been extremely frustrating so far and I'm trying to stay positive but with everything going on it's really, really difficult.

Maybe all the bad stuff will get out of the way now and the rest of 2014 will be fabulous. I am getting married in less than 9 months after all (holy crap).

Happy stitching, everyone!

Woo hoo on finishing page 2 and for the little appearance of the majestic parrot! I'm sorry to hear that you're having probs at work. I hope that gets sorted out for you soon. Keep smiling stunner, sending you positive vibes but not via post as you may not get them, bloody post office!

Excuse me if I am slightly underwhelmed by the parrot!! I promise to get more excited when it starts to resemble an actual bird.

TBH I am so much more excited about your wedding!!!
