This one is next door and just missed our house by a few feet.

Look at the visitors we have been having the past 10 days or so.
These are Baltimore orioles. First we just had one, several days later we started seeing 2 of them. I put out jar lids with blackberry jelly in them. Yesterday a third one appeared. We had a feeder out for them but they prefer the jelly. Not sure how long they will stay.

I decided to join the “Stitch Me Up Embroidery” blog since I do enjoy hand embroidery. I always have a project ready to grab to take with me for doctor appointments or road trips.
I ordered a sample package of the Finca thread from Jane at Janes Fabrics and Quilts and I must say it is a very nice thread. I chose a design for my project were I could use a lot of different colors from my sample package.
I personally know Cyndi from Bee Tree Designs so I wanted to use one of her designs as my pattern for the door stop I made. Hopefully Spring is just around the corner so I can open the door and put my new doorstop to use.
Please visit all the other lovely stitching projects.

I hope you will be inspired by so many and as I am,
grateful for the leadership of Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts
and for Madame Samm for her brilliant ideas and
willingness to steer so many of us to be creative.
Thank you Ladies!!
Also, thanks to all that have visited and left comments.
Your comments are encouraging to all of us.

This is a Bird Brain design that I hand embroidered . I always have a project ready to grab when I need to sit and wait for appointments for myself or my mom. I have a problem sitting and not having something to do. I finished the piecing and quilting in time for Christmas and the winter season.
