Almost But Not Quite


Almost finished, but not quite.  That means though that I need to begin thinking about what I might like to stitch next.  A bird perhaps?

Here are some great small birds.

I had two female Downy Woodpeckers eating suet.

No red on the head means a female.

The flocks of chickadees, now include some Chestnut-backed Chickadees.

They tend to stay put a bit longer.

So they're a bit easier to photograph.


And here's a Black-capped Chickadee.

Breakfast time!

An Autumn Day


Stitch pumpkins and working on the Fall Guy.

Foggy Fall
I heard them, took me a while to find them in the fog.

Off go the geese!

More Bushtits!

Gotta' love these little guys.

Male this way...

...and that'a way!

And the sun sets on another day.

Antler Clanking

No rest for the wicked!

It's Antler Clanking Time!

We had three bucks in the backyard.

The two-point and the spike decided to butt heads.

Barry the Buck (three-point) decided to stroll over...  

...and check it out.

He took over and while Spike watched, he butted heads.

When it was over, he declared himself to be CHAMPION!
