September 2011 Blog Header Revisited
Time got away from me, so I am bringing back a blog header from 2011 figuring that many of you were not Followers then. Here's your Math Challenge!
I'm listing the stitches by vertical rows (not horizontal!) except rows 4 & 5 which I'm combining any-which direction!
Row #1 - Prairie Schooler, "Farmer's Market - Corn", Better Homes & Gardens, "Prize Winning Mini Samplers - Fruit Sampler", Fanci That, "Cabbage Patch", and Farmers' Market Photograph.
Row #2 - Ewe & Eye & Friends, "Wild White Onion", Farmers' Market Photograph, Ewe & Ewe & Friends, "Tangy Tomato", and Need'l Love Company, "Crow and Berries".
Row #3 - Farmers' Market Photograph, Prairie Schooler, "Thanksgiving Comes Again - Indian Corn", Prairie Schooler, "A Prairie Garden - Sunflower", and SamSarah, "Alphabet Baubles - P is for Pear".
Row #4 & Row #5 - Heart in Hand, "Wee Vegetables" - then to the right to Twisted Threads, "Harvest Trio - Bitty Birds", then down to Ewe & Ewe & Friends, "Curious Carrot", down again to "Ewe & Eye & Friends, "Corn", and lastly a Flower Basket Photograph.
If you have further questions, write a comment or email me and I'll be happy to answer as best I can.
With the start of September, the number of birds and kinds of birds have changed.
I am getting more hawks, more often.
One even took after a Flicker!
I will say they are lovely fliers!
Here's a group of young White-crowned Sparrows with smaller American Goldfinch.
I must have 30-35 American Goldfinches.
They are mad about the shelled sunflower seeds.
And they are rather motley in appearance!
I am starting to see more Cedar Waxwings - that's exciting!
But I rarely see a Black-headed Grosbeak. Most have left for their winter homes.
Fortunately, I still have jays - Scrub Jays...
...and Steller's Jays.
Here's a one time only photo of the two kinds of jays sharing a drink together.
They do chatter and squawk and are a great Hawk Early Warning System.
