HISTORY BUTTON REQUIRED


Yesterday was a blue day, I get them from time to time and so not much was done and I did a lot of thinking and being miserable..
Too much thinking is usually what causes the miseries.
I wish I had a history button that I could drop down in my head and then go through and delete all the things that are continually bothering me.
Usually the same things either now or from the past, things that I can't put right and I really do not want to keep bringing up in my head.
Yes, that would be lovely to be able to get rid of all the negative thoughts.  
Maybe I could just put them in the trash to be recovered if I ever needed to mull them over  but they wouldn't be right there to make me blue.
By the evening I had shaken myself back to normal and went upstairs to work on the new page.


I'm making the wings from organza material and marking the veins with a fine pen.


I'm mulling over the bodies and would really like some flat backed stones for the big part but would you believe it, even though I have several drawers of beads and jewellery I do not have any flat stones the right size, that's sods law isn't it?
I've been through all of the stash twice not quite believing that there couldn't be any but nothing.
So I think I may fill in with smaller beads, we'll see.

Little Bo is here today and asleep in the kitchen. 
We now have a baby gate again in the kitchen doorway so that the cats can have the whole house and Bo can stay in the kitchen until the cats get used to him, fingers crossed.


Here he is, first time on the beach wondering what all that water is.
Sorry picture is a bit fuzzy.

  2. Oh Briony a personal negative thoughts delete button sounds like just the right thing - if you find them anywhere do let me know. It would solve some of my problems also.
    I never cease to wonder at the skill you have in taking an idea and producing a work of art. Your 'fabric sampler book' will be a a beautiful keepsake when finished.

  3. bo is so tiny, he doesn't look as big as your cats. I rarely think about things from the past, but I drive myself crazy with my what if scenario player that is in my head. I want and off button for that. my head plays the what if this or that happens, and makes me crazy.... I turn it off by reading but the minute I stop it turns back on... a remove history button would be a good thing to have

  5. Your little dragon flies (we called them mosquito hawks growing up) are coming along beautifully. I'm in awe of detail work like you do. As for the negative thoughts, try virtually putting them in a box and locking it. There's a poem by Bertha Adams Backus that goes."Build for yourself a strongbox, Fashion each part with care, When it's strong as your hand can make it, Put all your troubles there. Hide there all thought of your failures, And each bitter cup that you quaff, Lock all your heartaches within it, Then sit on the lid and laugh." There's another verse, but you get the idea...

  7. The baby gate for the kitchen is a splendid idea! I think we all have these blue days. It is hard to put things behind us, but we must look only forward, and try to live in the present. I cannot wait to see the finished dragonflies! I know whatever you figure out, they will be awesome! I love the fine lines on the wings. They do look like veins!

  8. I think we all get blue days from time to time. They help you to appreciate the sunny ones even more.
    A baby gate for Bo is a great idea

  9. Personally, I think if a person never had "blue days" they were either lying or in dire need of a shrink.

  10. I occasionally have blue days - just like that Briony. I find that swigging half a bottle of vodka tends to drive those blues away.
    By the way - down on Brighton beach there must be millions of flat backed stones you could use in your latest project.

    1. Good idea YP. I should get myself down there. We used to be on the beach all Summer once when the kids were young but we hardly go down there now, it was only because they took Bo that we tagged along.

    2. When you said "good idea", I assumed you were referring to the vodka!

  12. I think I have too many blue days sometimes. To bad we just can't hit a delete button like the computer has never to ponder on those things that make us sad and blue.

  13. Blue days just happen, don't they? All we can do is endure and realize they are temporary. Bo is adorable and he matches the pebbly beach so well! And I love your dragonfly wings.

  14. Sorry you got down in the dumps. Hope everything is better.
    Bo is a doll. Hopefully, the cats will get use to him soon.

    Happy weekend,
    Take care,

  15. Bo is so cute! I love watching your needlework. Being blue may mean your tired or you need a break from routine. Glad you're feeling better.

  17. Those dragonfly wings are so delicate - lovely. I hope the blues have lifted by now. I've not had much trouble with blues through my life until lately. Our kids are off on their own lives, my husband and I are getting so that we are tired all the time with no energy to do much on the weekends except rest up for another week. It seems like we're heading down the slope to eternity (or nothingness) much faster than we want to!
