Flapping Parrot page 5 finish!

I stitched so hard last night my needle broke!

Before:

After:

Next page will be a part of the actual parrot's head, so I'm very excited to see that, after which it will be four straight pages of nothing but background. I'm thinking of just doing two at a time after the next page but we'll see how I'm feeling. H³ has chosen Mario to be the next page finish! So time to pull that out and do some work on it for the first time in almost 4 years!

Besides that birthday in Vegas was fine. Vegas isn't really my kind of town, but I had no idea since I'd never been. Also, I really missed H³ while we were there (it was a girl's weekend) so I don't think I want to spend another birthday without him.

Thus begins another decade. Here's to 30 and everything that comes with it. Minus aging. None of that, now.

Happy stitching, everyone.

You broke a needle? That's hardcore!
Glad the Birthday trip went well even if you did miss H3 while you were away.

Did you see any shows while you were in Vegas? It would be interesting to go just to experience the vibe of the place, but gambling isn't really my thing. I think the shows are the part that would appeal to me most.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Mr. Parrot's head. But wow, I hadn't realized it has been so long since Mario was in the mix!
