One of the things my sister gave me this year was this lovely glass rooster.
I'm not sure where she found it but he's spectacular.
Here's his other side. The card that came with him says the rooster "is an auspicious symbol of honesty, luck and protection, as well as physical and moral strength." I'll take it!
I have a little collection of chickens and roosters in my dining room. He'll fit right in. Or maybe I should keep this one closer to my bed?
I think she's absolutely right!
Actually, now that I think about it, my SIL gave me a couple of bluebird beads a few weeks ago too. In honor of my birthday she took apart two more of my quilt books and put the pages in sleeves for me. When I got the binders back the beads were tucked in with them. I nearly forgot! I may have to get them out and play with them soon. It's time to do an ornament for June for the BJP afterall. Which reminds me... I've done April but I don't think I've posted it yet. I have a foundation set up for May but haven't stitched it yet. Like I said, I lost a couple of days this past week. Maybe I can get my engines revved up and get back to work tomorrow. We still have Father's Day to celebrate around here today...
