I like the more muted colors used in the Shaker Threads pallet.

We had a lovely muted sunrise Monday morning.

In the morning after setting out bird food, I sat on the back patio with the cats for a bit.  I notice a group of birds flying around and watched them as the landed in a big fir tree near our house.  

They took flight again almost immediately and came to my feeder.
Five!  Count 'em!  Five Grosbeak Guys!

Wow - I have never had that many this time of year.  
I think they are taunting me, and will all disappear before the Great Backyard Bird Count begins. 

You probably think this fawn is watching me.

Nope.  She's watching Padma-Cat who is watching her...


  1. That's another very cute snowman - well done. Very nice animal pics too.

  2. Lovely finish! Love the pics too -- Padma is so cute!

  3. I really like this one! It's just perfect for a cold winter's day like todya.

  4. I think I have that pattern somewhere... I like it muchly! FIVE!! Wow! That was quite a gathering! I sure do hope they stick around to be counted! Hugs!

  5. I love that snowman ! The pictures are great as usual. My Dad always said, " Red in the morning, sailors take warning." Did you get bad weather later in the day?

  6. Cute finish.
    Love the picture of Padma and the fawns. That's gorgeous.

  7. Cute snowman stitch! That's alot of Grosbeak guys. I'm surprised the deer come right onto you patio with Padma so close. There's no way my Dottie Dog would just sit and watch deer walk around in her yard!

  8. Love this snowman piece - I agree that the color choices are just perfect!

  9. That is amazing how close the deer get to your patio area. Love the snowman finish. I can't stitch winter this late in the year I am so looking forward to spring.

  10. What a cute snowman! Enjoyed your pictures too!

  11. Congratulations on the snow finish! It's really cute. LOL at the nature stare down. ;)

  12. I really love the Shaker colors too.
    The guys are definitely having a party.

  13. I love these little 'snowball' snowmen guys of Val's!! Soooo cute. I have the Ho Ho Ho one done up as an ornament and it's one of my favs.


Thank you all. I appreciate that you've read my blog and are taking the time to comment.
