another needlepoint

I received this needlepoint from my friend Kay, few years ago. I started to work on it last year.The title of this design is" The Angelus". Years ago when one heard the church bells ringing at twelve, specially in the country ones stop doing their works and prayed. When my sister was in a convent ,and I visited her in the summer, we always prayed at twelve noon (Angelus time).

my cockatiel

here is another picture of my cockatiel. I manage to take one a bit closer this time. He knew I was trying to take a photo of him and he kept going back and forth. I fooled him a bit , I pretend to look somewhere else while talking to him and as he stood still ,I snap and voila a very good picture of him.

Halloween...To believe or not??????????

The night was very dark, not a cloud in the sky. Suddenly a candescent aura appear far away on the horizon above the distant hills, illumating the land.
Then it started to move very slowly , you could see the mouvement, coming nearer and nearer. The land was bare, nothing to see, no houses, no animals, just a big void.
As you watch this phenomina, you start to wonder what causes this candescent aura to appear so suddenly?
It was pitch dark one minute and the next, this big circle of light appear out of nowhere.
If you look closely you would swear that someone is pulling it across the sky, but how could this be? there is no one in sight, and surely it would have to be a giant to accomplish this feast.
No, there is no explanation to this extraordinary sight. you have to wait and see its development further. Surely something will come out of this or, it will dissapeared as quickly as it came.
There is a feeling that something else will happen. One has to wait with patience, with anticipation of what will be next.
All of sudden a funny sensation comes over you, there is an eerie feeling in the air, and something clicked in your mind as you recollect a tale that was told a long time ago... No surely not, it would be incroyable if this was to happens....
As you stare at the sky, suddenly, the candescent aura is beginning to change its shape, from a big circle, to a giant puff, like a big cotton ball. It is coming faster now, and, as you look, you expect it to explode in small pieces, but no. it is weaving all over the place as if someone is playing around, keeping you in suspense.....
Recalling the tale, you wait anxiously with your heart beating so fast, and hoping against hope that you will see what???
Yes,yes there they are the three witches, pointing with their fingers at the big puff of candescent, and laughing, laughing, dancing, dancing. They are moving it above in the sky like a giant toy. It is spinning so fast, it is breaking in small fragments, but strangely still remaining whole.
I am glad to know that these witches were the good ones. If they had been wicked, one wonders what would have happened............

Cockatiel photo

I took this picture of my cockatiel a week ago. I though I share his photo, he is such a beautiful bird, and a very good companion. He knows my voice and he does like it very much when I talk to him and play with him as well.

My first try at thread painting.

The very back petals were done like a satin stitches to my eyes but then I try very hard a the direction given with the design, and the small petal on the right and the larger petal right in the front were more like thread painting .whew!
