The North Wind Doth Blow

Design - "Six Eggs in a Row"
Designer - SamSarah Design Studio
Fabric - 28 count R & R Dark Espresso
Fibers - Crescent Colours - 2 stands over 2 threads
Started - 27 March 2012
Completed - 29 March 2012

This was a great project to work on while watching TV ("NCIS" and a recorded episode of Louis Gate's "Finding Your Roots").  I love the soft spring colors.  Next year I'll stitch the other two sets of eggs in the series.  

We had a wind advisory until 11pm yesterday - and oh my, the wind did blow!  I was lucky as the rain did not arrive until mid-day.  I was able to stroll about outside in the morning - face into the wind, but not wet.  It was like being at the coast without the salt-spray.

I set out some stale bread for the Jays...

...but the deer got there first. 
I did not see any deer last week while we had snow on the ground.

Nor did I see any Chipmunks during our snowy weather.  I wonder where they sheltered during and after the storm.

Yesterday morning I counted three of them. 

Bottoms Up!

The deer have such gentle faces. I like the soft colours in your design.

those colors really feel like spring. such a wonderful design!and it think I like the fabric color a lot too, it is kind of neutral but a ice change for white and off white:-)

I love the eggs and the little flowers complete them! The animal photos are so cute! Thanks for reminding me of our NW weather ! Can you believe it is so warm here we have to go to the mall to walk without getting too hot!!

Oh, I love those eggs. It's fun to see them again. Great stitching.

We have Chipmunks in our yard too, but I haven't spotted them yet this year. Thanks for making me smile.
