July Stitching July Birds

Design - "July"
Chart - "3 for 2 July"
Designer- Curtis Boehringer Cross Stitch
Fabric - 28 count Light Mocha Cashel
Fibers- DMC - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 2 July 2016
Completed - 3 July 2016

I think this is the first month this year when I've been able to start a themed stitch at the beginning of the month.  This is an older pattern (1998) and I quite like it all these years later.

And now on to the July Bird of the Month. 

A winner in sheer numbers - the California Quail. 

This first two photos are of one of my childless couples. 

Here's a group of babies in the backyard...

...with Papa Quail standing guard from up on high.

Watching, watching, watching.

A good Dad.

And another couple.

I like the simplicity of the July project. It is very pretty. As for those couples - they are beautiful.
