Stitching and Bathing

I think this was the March design that 'won' in my informal query of "What Would You Stitch?" So I have it all kitted up and am ready to get stitching.

Have you ever seen the rear-end of a Spotted Towhee?
Now you have!

Friday morning this bird decided to take a bath.

It was a vigorous bath. 

After splashing, the bird then fluffed his feathers. 

Then back to splashing.

Perch on the rim as the last droplets rain down.

The fluff the feathers.

Repeat - splash up a storm

Fluff up

Your Spotted Towhee pictures are fantastic!! :D

That's going to be a very cute March project. I hadn't noticed how many colors are in the pattern until you showed the threads!

I have never seen the rear end of a Spotted Towhee! What a delightful shot. He looks like he was having such a good time in the water!

You're right - that little behind is a first for me!!

Your bird bath photos are wonderful! I just love watching bids taking a bath. They really get into it!

I took some photos of a robin bathing recently... But I am behind in posting the pictures cause I went to a Bird Park last week, and took hundreds that need to be ID'd and cropped, etc... It's a job! But it was great! I like your next piece to stitch for St. Patrick's Day--look forward to seeing your rendition on your fabric. Hugs!
