Hands on Design - "Love" per designer's blog.
I still haven't stitched this year. I've decided that I feel overwhelmed by all my WIP's. So I'm going to ignore them for the moment, and move on a stitch a seasonal small. Cathy at Hands on Design has generously offered "Love" as a freebie and you can download it here. A wonderful small delight! Baby steps, right?
I think these birds qualify as small delights too.
Monday afternoon I had a mixed flock of chickadees (2 kinds) and a nuthatch at the feeders.
I was not able to get a photo of the nuthatch, but did manage a few of the Black-capped Chickadees.
I think there were at least four Black-capped.
They flit to the feeders one at a time, grab, and seed, and them flit back into the trees and brush for safety to consume their seed.
I was pleased to see a couple of Chestnut-backed Chickadees in the mix as I'd not seen these birds for a couple of weeks.
They tend to linger at the feeders for a longer period of time than the Black-caps which makes for more photo ops!
They certainly are adorable little birds.
