Many Shades of Gray

My Mom and I took a day trip up to Corvallis on Friday and visited Friendship Crossing.

 As you can see I came home with lots of treasures.  

Smaller pieces of fabric in 28, 30 and 32 count including Lambswool, Lilac, Light Chino, Star Sapphire, and Black.  Some JABC buttons, GAST's newest colors, and 3 small frames. 

I've become a fan of the Hands on Design, so was pleased to find several new charts.  Maybe I can work in one small Plum Street patriotic stitch before this month ends.

I tend to belittle all the Basic Brown Birds that I see, but I've notice that I have far more birds in shades of gray.

Back-capped Chickadee

California Quail

Band-tailed Pigeons

The birds are beautiful--never noticed all the gray!

I've never seen the Carriage House Red Wing Black bird piece. I look forward to seeing it stitched!

Lovely new stash! That should give you many happy stitchy hours :-) I love all the gray birds, but the gray squirrel is the cutest!

Oooh, STASH!! All those pieces of fabric look wonderful!! And so do the buttons! You bought a great bunch of charts--I have some of the Hands on Designs ones too... they are sitting right across from me--languishing, but not for long! You do have a plethora of grey birdies! Hugs!
