Alphabet Sampler Progress and a Nature Report

Back on June 10th, I said I was going to start "Alphabet Sampler" by Birds of a Feather.  Well that did not happen.  I just picked this up and began stitching on Friday.  The linen, "Sparrow" by BOAF did not photograph well - it is quite a lush chocolate brown.  I like the quiet tones - only three colors of WDW used - Caper, Onyx, and Putty.

We have had two days of +90F temperatures and today is supposed to reached 90F.  The mornings have been cool and glorious.  Lots of critters taking advantage of the cooler temperatures to drink and eat before laying low during the heat of the day.
One of our California Quail families out and about.

Three Barn Swallow babies remain in the nest.  The 4th started flying a couple of days ago, he does return to the nest in the gloaming to spend the night with his siblings and parents.

The birdfeeders are awash in finches.

And a couple of deer strolled by too!

I espied some other critters too...
This glass Dragonfly pendant ...

...and this Ladybug sun-catcher -both Etsy purchases!
