Stitching updates

Cross stitch kit, based on cloisters

Hardanger updates - made the repairs when I snipped the wrong threads in the first part I cut. Based on some advice from a friend, I have added eyelets around the outside edge. I really don't like eyelets, but will do them anyway.

Bird feeders

Finally got the bird feeders up. After a year in the new house, it's nice to watch the birds again. We've got goldfinches, cowbirds, red-winged blackbirds, and grackles. There's a chipping sparrow I've seen once or twice, and another sparrow I've yet to identify. We've got lots of robins, tree swallows and bluebirds as well. We put up a nesting box (one of three) this month and have had some bluebirds check it out already.
