Happy new year! I hope that this year is the best one yet! :-)
Have I ever told you that I am a crazy bird lady? Well, I am! :-) As I am writing this, I can look out my dining room window and see several birds in queue, waiting for an open space at one of the feeders. Now, that all of the leaves are gone, I can catch glimpses of other birds down at the end of our yard in the wooded area. We are blessed to have lived in some of the best birding areas in the world. The American Birding association moved their headquarters about 5 blocks down the road from us. When we lived in the country of Panama, we saw Toucans quite frequently! I love birds! :-)
I have bird tea things, a table cloth, pictures, figurines, stationery. ...etc. :-) You get the picture, I am sure. :-)
So, I had been thinking that every crazy bird lady needs a bird Christmas tree! Right? ! We had a smallish Christmas tree that we were not using and I already had quite a few bird ornaments and our family tree was getting really full, so it was meant to be! So, my stitching goal this year is to make as many new bird ornaments as possible. :-)
I am keeping it up through January, since it is more wintery and It makes me smile every time I see it. :-)
Without any more rambling, here are some pictures of my bird tree. :-)
Good morning! Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. May your day be filled with lots of fun and happy memories!
I have so much to be thankful for in my life! I have been purposely choosing to look for all of the blessings in my life and focusing on them instead of the things that make me worried and it has really changed me for the better and I am thankful for that! :-) I am thankful for the friends that I have made through blogging!
I finished Give Thanks on Tuesday evening. Hubby ended up having to work late and daughter was in Baltimore volunteering at the Operation Christmas Child distribution center, so little man and I watched cheesy Christmas cartoons and I stitched. :-) I did a simple finish for it so I could enjoy it for a few days this year. I stitched it on 32 ct. PP Doubloon. I used the recommended threads except for I used 436 instead of 422. The pattern is by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. It was such a fun stitch. :-)
