WIP Wednesday

I don't normally post a WIP or UFO or WISP on Wednesday because I
work every Wednesday. I either work a day shift or a night shift - today I am working nights, so I thought I would post a picture of a small wall hanging that I would like to finish this year. It was a class that I took about 5 years ago. Most of my WIP's are from workshops and classes.

This is a native design of a Blue Heron. There isn't much left to finish on the top. The addition of some yellow and red needs to be added in some of the white areas and a small rock or grass for the heron to appear to be standing behind. It is only about 16" by 24". What has stalled me with this is the fact that the yellow and red in the pattern to be added is embroidery instead of fabric - and I am not much with embroidery so I was planning to do little bits of fabric - which mean a bit more work but I think it would look better (at least better than what I could stitch). It needs an eye and some red or yellow dots down the neck and then some ovoids or something on the tail and maybe just embroidery stitching on the wing.

What I really should be doing right now is taking down the Christmas tree. I usually take the tree down on January 1st - but I had to go back to work on the 1st this year - and the 2nd, and today - so if I don't take the tree down today - it is Eric's birthday tomorrow and I think it could be Saturday before I can get to it. All the decorations on the tree have to be taken off and wrapped in tissue paper and put in special little boxes - so it is a bit of a job - and I am the only one that can do it correctly (so I believe). I really would like to get back my little quilting corner - so I better take the tree down today.

I am finding blogger very frustrating right now with the text and paragraphs - what I am typing up for paragraphs is not showing up and the line spaces are changing from the way I like it nicely spaced to the too close together spacing and I can't figure out how to fix this -- very annoying.
