Reindeer Love Frosty Mornings

...at least I imagine Reindeer like cold, frosty mornings, wouldn't you?

I've worked a bit on "New England Reindeer Sampler".  It is stitching up pretty quickly, I'm just not working on it much.  I'm suffering from my usual "Project in Progress Fatigue Syndrome", whereby I'm much more interested in buying the chart, the fibers, the linen, and starting the project; than actually stitching it- because by then my attention has moved on to 1/2 a dozen other 'more interesting' stitches!

Sunday morning was a frosty one.  I'm not sure I've ever seen frozen dewdrops on the grasses before.

Frosty mornings appear to equal puffy quail.

Here are close-ups of my three bunnies.
Bunny #1

Bunny #2

Bunny #3.
All are big, healthy bunnies.
Tom-Cat and Parvati - let's make sure they stay that way!
No food with faces!

I guess I do something wrong because everytime I post a comment It never appears. I love your blog especially all the nature pictures and comments.

I can so identify with the idea that kitting up projects is a lot more fun than stitching.

As always I love your wildlife and nature photos. Poppy and Blue's mission in life is to catch a rabbit.
