Maybe This One...

I've got everything I need to get going on this new stitch, except the color needed to stitch the reindeer!  Isn't that always the case?

I've had a pretty good Woodpecker Week!  Let's have a look.

I saw a small female Downy Woodpecker on the dead top of a Big Leaf Maple.  In fact, there was a Downy, an Acorn Woodpecker, and a Flicker.  Snags, though rather ugly, are woodpecker magnets!  

This is the bird that made my Woodpecker Week!  
A Red-breasted Sapsucker and I managed to get one good photo of the bird!  Yahoo!

This is the best photo I managed of the female Hairy Woodpecker.

Doesn't the male Hairy Woodpecker look like he has a red heart on the back of his head?

It seems like an extra-large patch.  I'll have to look carefully and see if I have a couple of male, maybe the red patch varies in size a bit.

Here is the Acorn Woodpecker couple.

The male even braved the freezing rain to eat some suet. 

Silhouettes - a Downy Woodpecker and a Flicker with tail feathers splayed.

I go back and forth...is this a female or a young male? I need to ask the owners of my local Wild Birds Unlimited store.  They'd know.

The bright red mustache - this bird is a male, no doubts!

What a great picture of that sapsucker - very pretty bird!

Maybe you have a similar color for the reindeer's body in a one of the other lines? And wouldn't it be great to have a cross reference between the various overdyed threads?
