As you can see, I still do not have a new finish to share. I do well remember stitching this turkey as the silver Kreinik braid was a real challenge.
Oh well, Padma says I'll get my stitching mojo back sooner or later.
In the meantime I'll enjoy the outdoors...
...and the raindrops sparkle in the sunlight.
Here's a California Scrub Jay...
and a Steller's Jay.
Last winter a neighbor had two Gray Jays at her feeders. Maybe a couple of these Canadian birds will head my direction this year.
I did see two Turkey Vulture on an extremely windy morning.
Honestly it looked like they were playing - using the gusts and updrafts to show off their aerobatic skills.
Saturday my sister and I heard a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
A tiny, flittering bird- so hard to photograph.
It was working away gleaning small insects from this pine tree. If we have a hard, cold winter these birds will come and eat suet.
