Cedar Waxwing

Saw a Cedar Waxwing in the lilacs today. What a surprise since I really don't have any plants that would attract them.

Motif for sides of large hardanger doily. I have two and a three quarters completed. Then all I have to do is figure out what I'll use for fillers and where I'll cut. Posted by Picasa

First two filler stitches from the hardanger class. I think we'll do about six for this first lesson. Posted by Picasa

We heard a house wren at our place tonight. This is the first time I've identified a bird by it's song. My husband, son and I were in the yard when we heard a bird scolding us from the lilacs. Sure enough we got a glimpse and it looked like a wren, so I looked it up in my bird software and heard that same scolding sound :) Very cool.

Coming soon....

Completed huck weaving

Just need to finish this into the needle roll.

Huck weaving and bird watching

I didn't get to see the fireworks last night since the baby was in bed early, and we can't see the ones in the city from our house. I did see color in the yard this morning though - a blue jay, a robin and a male cardinal.

Now that I've taken that class on huck weaving, I dug out an old kit I had.

Also, I finished stitching my punchneedle project

Well, my little guy is waking up, so I should go get him going for the day.
