Snowmen and Robins

I've got all the supplies together to begin stitching Twisted Thread's "January Snow".  It's an over-one stitch, but I have enough gingham fabric that I'll be stitching it over-two instead.  It has a snowman and some snowflakes, and so it is in keeping with my January stitching theme. 

"January Snow" also shares the same color pallet as this Scrub Jay.

A rainy, blustery day did not deter this Red Tailed Hawk from keeping watch. 

The recent rains have made looking listening for worms easy-peasy.

Our 'front yard' has been filled with Robins.

No robins for us yet! I'm going to go look this pattern up - I have some gingham that needs used up!

Oh my, I love the colors in that piece you're starting...blues and purples, just my thing! We also have had a lot of rain and the robins are hopping around here as well.

No robins here yet. I really can't see the design, but I love the color pallet!

Your robins are so different to ours, I don't think I've seen a photo of one before.

Lovely colors for your new project! Haven't seen any robins here yet but have seen a couple of bluebirds in the last few days!

I love all of your bird photos! Your Reindeer sampler is adorable--congratulations on the finish! Your new project looks great, too--I'll enjoy watching your progress!

Beth--that picture of the scrub jay is beautiful! Last night I figured out that the bird I was about to stitch is a robin and not a cardinal. Made so much more sense in the color scheme! The weather was warm here--65--but going to drop a little tomorrow. NOT a bit like winter tho! Hugs!

Love the bird photos! We sat on our porch today(cool but we had hot chocolate) and saw a huge woodpecker. Birds are such a treat to watch. I love that fabric. I would always prefer to stitch over two!

English Robins dont look like that. I managed to photograph one today and will include in my next post for you.

Love all the other birds so different from the UK.

Please keep them coming.
