So being stuck inside should have meant plenty of stitching time but, alas, not. I managed only a few stitches in the lighthouse design....but, progress is progress no matter how little!
I also managed to finish the free kit from this month's World of Cross Stitching magazine.
It's a sweet little design that was quick to stitch and I think might end up being made into a card. I love the free kits as they are perfect for stitching up quickly. You can pop them in your bag for stitching on-the-go knowing that everything you need is there (minus the old specs....can't forget them!) and then you have a supply of stitched pieces for last minute cards!
So with all the snow we've been having, the poor birds have been rather hungry and flocking to the bird feeders in the back garden. It's a bit of a struggle to get out and clear all the snow off the feeders, but the rewards are some wonderful birds that we don't normally see....
...a rather large red-bellied woodpecker (I think!)....
...and a slightly cold looking Carolina wren with his feathers all puffed out trying to keep warm! Isn't he cute?
Speaking of trying to keep warm, that's what I'm about to try to do as I shovel more snow off the drive! Roll on Spring!
Until next time....happy stitching!
