Sweet gift from over the seas, birds and dreams

When Doug, Hannah and Angela were here last month they brought over some great gifts for many of us and I was presented with three very lovely gifts.
The tile of the bird was from Doug- marvelous and goes perfect in the kitchen.

Then from Ang- this sweet tile goes perfect in the front room of the house- how did she know?
And just look at this sweet creamer (jug) from Hannah- it is keeping company on the mantle
On mother's day we went and meet up with our son and his wife.
Later I noticed there was more then the usual poop from the birds who are nesting on the carport.
I snapped a picture to get a closer look and when I looked at it on the computer I noticed not the usual 3 babies we have had the last two years but 5!
Now that is a load of babies to feed.
One has been pushed out of the nest and I think we will see some flight soon.
But goodness the mess.
I have some clean up to do.
Food in- food out.
After my dream about Lee I decided to do an embroidery piece using the colors from the dream.
I have about 5 of these small pieces done and now I have to do something with them.
But- today pots!
Work is calling.

Your needlework is beautiful! Makes me want to embroider my denim jacket. I used to do so much of that back in the day.
I have that same bird mess coming but it's in my studio, the mom is there sitting on 6 eggs, lots of poop in store I'm afraid.

Oh i knew it was you!
Wesley Tracey!
The birds are gone today and the mess cleaned up.
Phew- I hope they all made it but what they leave behind.
I am enjoying the change of pace the embroidery is giving me.


Your needlework, like everything you do, is just lovely. I like switching mediums (even to the ones I'm not especially good at) once in a while just for a change of pace.

I love your baby birds. I hope they all made it!

You're bringing back long ago memories with your embroidery, I remember some of my jean bottoms having crewel work or something, what sweet baby birds.

Love that embroidery! It inspires me to get back to mine.

Lovely gifts! The whole experience seemed so fun! I am very envious! I wish I could have been there!
