Nine Little Snow Guys

Design - "Baubles - January"
Designer - SamSarah
Fabric - 28 count Newport Natural / Cream Zweigart linen 
Fibers - WDW & GAST - 2 strands over 2 threads - I changed the color Straw to Oatmeal
Started - 16 January 2012
Completed - 22 January 2012

The first pictures shows the stitch before I attached the JABC buttons.  This photo is the 'after' with the buttons.

Sunday was a blustery mild day - no rain, but the wind indicated that a storm was on the move.  Not much new on the Nature front.    

Sparrows greeted me as I set out the bird food.

Though much smaller than the Quail, they appear to co-exist peaceably. 

One bunny appeared for Sunday brunch.  I didn't hang around, but I wouldn't be surprised if more showed up for the buffet.

Such cute snowmen! Looks like you've got plenty of critters to feed. We had ice over the weekend and I had plenty of business at my feeders too!

Love the snowmen - cute!
I guess the little Sparrow never heard - birds of a feather flock together - unless he thinks he is a Quail. :) Glad they are co-existing.

The snowmen are adorable! Congrats on a wonderful finish. It seems as though sparrows get along with most other birds as they are always sharing seed in my yard with scrub jays and morning doves.

What cute snowmen - I almost (only almost, lol) hate to see January end, your stitches have been so cute. What a sweet bunny, but you know my feelings about them, anyway, sweet things!

The Snow Guys are adorable--the buttons just make them pop! As always, love the nature pics... Read about the rain in your other posts---wow! All the creeks are quite full! Maybe that will be good for spring...? Hugs!
