A Wintry Finish

Design - "Winter Alphabet" (kit)
Designer - Heart in Hand
Fabric - 32 count Dirty Belfast linen
Fibers - GAST, WDW, and Olde Willow
Started - 11 January 2012
Completed - 14 January 2012

Give our bit of recent snow, this is a timely little sampler.

I don't want to go overboard with Snow Photos (I need 'em for my Wednesday Walk!).  So here's what I have to share.

A Hawk surveying the snowy landscape.

A Sparrow - Feed Me!

A Junco - backside

A Junco - front-side

Anytime I lose a Follower, my sister says it is because I post TOO MANY JUNCO PHOTOS!  What can I say, they're our most common Winter bird.

You can never post too many pictures of the wildlife. Please keep them coming.

Congrats on your finish! The markings on that sparrow are beautiful!

I love Juncos! My grandmother used to call them snowbirds because they would come to her home in winter only. Great finish!

Darling finish! I don't think you can ever post too many Junco photos.

Love that finish Beth!

Well that theory can't be right. Juncos are such sweet little things. I think the ones you have are slightly different color that our Ohio ones...or maybe I haven't seen the undersides as clearly as in your photos.

Gabi said...

Lovely finish, congrats.
Gosh, that Junco looks fantastic from the front. Didn't know that bird. It's a beauty.
But then again, I do love all birds.

Such a cute finish, Beth--that sure was quick :)

I love your bird photos--we don't have juncos here (that I know of) so I always am happy to see them!
