I placed a small order a while ago and most of the charts arrived this week.
I am still waiting for the 4th in the series of Heartstring Samplings Bird Collection to show up. April may be a mix of Easter and bird stitching. We shall see.
And now to answer a couple of questions and say thank you. I do try to respond to everyone who is kind enough to comment and answer question via email. But so many people are set up 'No-Reply", so I cannot. Sue Hilf asked me about a chart on my blog header and I could not email her. The post with all the designers' names and chart names for March is here and should answer your question. Also several new followers like M in Vancouver have commented to say that they enjoy the blog. If I have not responded, it is because you are set up as No-Reply. Please know that I so appreciate your comments and hope you continue to enjoy my blog.
Now on to the birds.
I noticed the other morning that there was no bird activity at the feeders, and then I found this small Sharp-shinned Hawk in a young fir tree at the edge of the yard. As I walked over to 'encourage' the bird to move on it took off and headed straight to the house to 'get' a hummingbird at one of the two feeders I have at the kitchen windows!
This feeder! Fortunately the hummer took off in time.
Once the hawk left the birds slowly returned including a few Bushtits.
I also enjoy watching the chickadees.
They will snag a piece of peanut and then take it to a branch where they work at getting it the correct size to consume.
I'm hoping that a couple of pairs will nest in the houses we provide.
