What a week!

Hello everyone,
I spent the first half of this past week sidelined with a migraine, but. I did manage to get my exchange package mailed. Storms moved in and we lost power. Surprisingly, our power was restored on the same day. Later that evening, our clothesline pulley snapped. We use it to hang our bird feeders to keep them away from the bears. So we had to improvise -we hung our feeders on our deck post each morning and had to bring them in at dusk each evening.
My miyuki delica beads arrived, so I was able to finish my patriotic scissor fob
Eagle © 2009 The Prairie Schooler, Inc.
32 ct Lambswool Linen
DMC Threads , 2 over 2
Stitch Count 27 W x 32 H

I liked it so much that I dug out an older Prairie Schooler pattern that I got from the bay of evil awhile ago (Prairie Birds Book #24) to make another scissor fob. I thought that it would be done by today, but storms moved in again yesterday, and we had no power for several hours. I'm stitching the goldfinches 2 over 1 on 25 count khaki. We did manage to fix our clothesline just before yesterday's storms moved in, so our birds were happy with their feeders back in their normal place.
I'll leave you with a lovely flower that the birds planted for me.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Beautiful fob finish.
    I hope the migraines stay away!

  2. Sorry about the migraine! I don't get them as frequently anymore but know when one comes that I'm going to lose three or four days. Love the scissor fob and can't wait to see the goldfinches! Hope your storms aren't too severe.

  3. Beautiful fob finish Lisa!
    Hope those migraines have gone on vacation now I had an awful one for five days last week too. Hugs.
