Work In Progress

I originally made this little tree scene cameo seperately. It was not long previous to my marriage break up and being, as I considered it, a picture of Pandora's Box and open... I felt that my husband would realise that I had made my decision to leave. Stupid I know! But the story goes that once Pandora's box was open and the contents had flown out, they could not be retrieved.
I thought that once I allowed my mind to see the truth... which was that our relationship had been over for a long time (a thought which I avoided seeing for many years)... I could not 'un-know' it.
So I'd blush or my heart would jump when he saw me working on it. As if he'd possibly be able to connect it. But there it is.
Long time ago now. Happy now. Nice kids. Nice life. All good so don't you worry.

This Is From My Second Ever Embroidery Although I Did Little Bits Once Or Twice

I must get a photo of the whole piece. It's nice. There are three of the Bluebirds on it. Have a look at all of the cards if you want to. Up to you. Don't if you don't want to. Of course. I put it here again so it will come up in the label 'Birds'. I try not to repeat myself. I try.
P.S. Here's my first embroidery.
