FAbric - 30 count WDW Gunmetal linen
Fibers - GAST - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 9 November 2016

A year later I finished up this WIP. I am thankful and grateful as most of us should be.

We've had lots of rainy days.

This Cooper's Hawk was perched between showers, attempting to dry off a bit.

He can turn his head almost as far as an owl - a raptor's trait.

I had over 70 Pine Siskins on Friday. I counted 23 in this photo.

Congratulations on your chalk finish! This is one of my favorites. There were times while I was teaching when I wished my neck could do that.

You are on a roll with your stitching! Love it!
That is the most beautiful tail on the hawk! You must find some of his feathers to save! He is a stunning fellow!

Beth another super stitch. I have not tried a chalkboard stitch yet but was looking at alot of them last night and I'm very tempted. The hawk is a stunning bird and what an awesome shot you got. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever
