I have been gone for a week with work and work has had me so busy that my stitching time was very little. I was late sending my Halloween exchange but it is in the mail and hopefully will get to a new home soon.

When my exchange partner receives their exchange I will post a picture.

Becky and I are good friends and we live in the same city. I drew her name for the Stitcher's Choice Christmas ornament. I stitched it twice because I messed up the first one when I tried to change it and ruined it. So I stitched it again and we had medical issues in the family and that slowed me down. But I had so much fun making it for her. She has a cat and I chose a cat ornament that I had loved in the 2002 Christmas issue. I changed the colors to match Tobey's colors and I used purple eyes and purple threads for the ribbon on his tail. My photo is not the best. I can't blame the camera, I believe it is the owner. :)

Our mailman missed my little package the first time he stopped and he came back with it and I am so happy with its contents. It was my Stitchers Choice ornie from Carol S. It is just precious and stitched so nicely. She puts me to shame. It is "Merry and Bright" from Erynne Chard. It is stitched on silkweaver 36ct solo using DMC, WDW, and CC floss.

A few weeks ago I realized that there was a bird nest in my hanging pocket wreath. There were four beautiful blue robin eggs. Then last week I realized there were robins in the nest. I counted three and they are getting big. Last year we had a nest on our wreath but it wasn't a robin. We have had such cold weather for April and May that I was afraid something would happen to them. I get up at 4a.m. to have my morning coffee, read the paper, and get ready for school I have an hours commute so I leave by 6:30a.m. Each morning I open the door the mother robin flies away in a flutter and I jump a foot. You would think after a couple of times I wouldn't be startled but alas no.
Nature is always interesting and our feathered friends grow so fast and are on their own in no time.
