Here's a stitch I did a few years ago that fits perfectly with this month's theme - August!

Black-capped Chickadees have been one of my August birds.

As have the California Quail.

Here's a sweet young female.

Papa Bird watching over his covey.

Always alert.

Surrounded.

On the move.

I often see five or more Steller's Jays.
They too are August birds.

Today's featured design would work perfectly in several categories! I love all the bird photos, especially the first.

That single feather on top of the male's head is just so cute!

I don't know why I haven't stitched that PS August piece yet--it is adorable! And perfect for you with all the critters, Beth :)

I like that PS piece--the colors are so vivid, everything just pops! Such an attentive papa Quail. So many mouths to feed! Stellar Jays are so different from my Blue Jays... which I have not seen yet this summer! Hugs!

What a great piece and I love the photo of the chickadee on the thistle!
