Monday's Flash Back

Remember that I referenced Bright Birds a couple of day's ago?  That got me thinking about this sampler is called "Brite Birds", a freebie issued in 1998 from Barrick Samplers. I stitched the piece of 32 count raw Belfast linen. I began on the 12th and finished it up this morning. I used the DMC colors as listed. I changed the date to 2009 and high-lighted my name: b,e,h,t (Beth) in Topaz rather than the black as charted.

I want to highlight the woodpeckers that I've had around the house this past week.

I got up extra-early one morning and my reward was this female Downy.

I haven't seen a Downy for several weeks, so it was a pleasant surprise.

My Hairy Woodpeckers continue to be reliable.

 I see females...

...and males.

The Acorn Woodpeckers are having to fight of Starlings at the peanut and suet feeders.  I had as many as 20 Starlings milling about.

The Flickers will battle anyone - including Flickers!

Such a fun finish, Beth! Lovely color choices and so nice to highlight your name :)

Love seeing your woodpeckers--I was beyond excited to see a huge pileated woodpecker at our suet feeder yesterday :)
