Lots of r's in my "Grrr!" as i pulled out this Thanksgiving stitch to work on it, only to discover that it does not 'line up". Some of the little leaf motifs are off one thread. I haven't really figured out the what and why yet except that I think the top center motif might be culprit. The dark grey linen threads are hard to count properly. Grrr!
On Thursday we had freezing rain for most of the day.
There was lots of bird activity, though no one 'special' (unusual) came by.
Here's a small group of House Finches...
As the freezing rain fell, the icicles got longer and longer.
All of the trees and shrubs were covered in ice.
It did not stop my Acorn Woodpecker.
I read somewhere that birds can slow the circulation to their feet so they don't get cold in weather like this.
A Song Sparrow.
A male Flicker and a Towhee in the lower left. It looks like we are going to have more cold weather at the end of the week. Stay tuned!
