...and here is my cute little robin framed. The picture looks much better in person as the flash from the camera interfers with the detail. Mauve is not my favorite color, although mauve is spring-like, I was very pleased how the green mat accents the green stitches.
2008 was a great year for me for 'completing' projects. If only to be as productive this year. Therefore to keep my stress level lower, I will try to concentrate on 'slowing down'. As my friend says I must simplify my life.
My 93 year old father passed away last year while I was stitching this picture. He did love the robin so much, that I will think of him every time I see a robin or hear one sing. I miss my father very much.
As Emily Dickinson quotes in her poems:
"Not In Vain
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain."
(American Poet who has been called the New England mystic, 1830-1886)

Love the little robin framed.
Wait a FRAMED a robin? Doesn't that go against what Emily Dickinson was saying in her poem??? ;) Just kidding.

Emily Dickinson is one of my favorite poets.

Thank you for the lovely compliment you left for me on my blog! And your framed robin looks wonderful.

I will be doing another mystery very soon. I first have to get the design together and then I'll post the info on it.
