August Stitch September Birds

Design - "August" (Flip It)
Designer - Lizzie Kate
Fabric - 32 count Country French Cafe Mocha linen
Fibers - GAST - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 28 August 2016
Completed - 29 August 2016 

I quite like the melon colored ladybug and the starfish charm. 

My Big Quail family comes by everyday. There are always two adult males and then anywhere from 28-46 youngsters.

The bunnies are so used to the birds, that they basically ignore them.

Cute bird and bunny nose!

I do have a new family. A very small family.

Just Dad, Mom, and a single chick.

Chick with Dad.

Chick with Mom.

Though small, it looks to be plump and healthy.

I also have a widower looking after five small ones.

He is so good at watching out over his young ones. 

They still 'peep' like chicks.

Stay safe everyone!

Danger can appear in a moment's notice.

What a sweet stitch!
I was so enjoying your baby bird photos, that is until that last photo of the hawk! Hope he found something else for dinner.
