Fair Daffodils, Fat Bunnies, and Pudgy Chipmunks

Each finish is then followed by a start.  I'm trying to not obsess with the fact that I am starting my April project in May...this whole stitching projects for 2011 thing is supposed to be fun, right?  Not a burden!  Anyway, up next "Fair Daffodil" by BBD.  Ironically it incorporates two of my banes - very dark fabric, and stitching over one.  Can I pick 'em or what?    

I was going to post some photos of my planting progress, but they've been superseded by some rather good (if I do say so myself) nature photos.

When the Goldfinches land in a fir tree, it is as though the tree is decorated for Christmas.

Two plump bunnies munching in the morning dew.

Mr. California Quail is on High Alert.

Chip says, "It's breakfast time!"

Bunnykins agrees!

And Buck Rogers notes, "I found the All You Can Eat Salad Bar!"

Bunnykins is just adorable! Such great pictures of all the cute animals. Can't wait to see the stitch over one thing. I don't think my eyes could even see the fabric that small. :)
