My Mom is on a stitching roll! She loves all things red, white and blue so this was a perfect project for her to work on. The 18 count linen made a nice, upscale change from the Aida she usually stitches.
Charlene (no-reply on blogger) asked about stitching on a frame. I am really lazy and instead of whip-stitching the fabric to the frame, I use oodles of Scotch tape! As I usually have 3" margins around the design, I cannot see that the tape hurts in the linen any.
We've had a Great Blue Heron flying overhead.
There are still a few Black-headed Grosbeaks lingering.
Here's a male.
And this is my Mystery Bird.
It may just be a young Robin though it looks like it has white bars on the wings.
Nice groups of Cedar Waxwings come by morning and evening when the light is low.
Here's a young bird.
He's got the serious Cedar Waxwing frown down pat already.
Better light so the yellow-tipped tails glow.
Look at the tail feathers in flight!
