Swooping in to say hello

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to share a visitor to our backyard this afternoon.

This is the first barred owl that we've seen.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

It's been awhile

Hello everyone,
It's been a long month since I last posted. My parents caught bad colds last month so I spent a lot of my time running errands for them. So  I didn't get as much stitching done as I would have liked, as DH & I wound up getting colds late last month/ early this month.
I did get some progress on
HAED 2013 BB SAL QS Mystic Garden (Marchetti)
28ct Picture This Plus  Valor
1 over 1  full cross DMC and Kreinik #4
now at 2660 stitches completed.

and on HAED 2012 BB SAL SK Forbidden Doorway (Dillman)
28ct Picture This Plus Opal. Moonglow
1 over 1  full cross DMC and Kreinik #4
now at 11850 stitches completed.

I also started another project after browsing through some of my older Just Cross Stitch Magazines.
This is from the July/August 2009 issue.
Spirit of America Angel by Brooke's Books Publishing
stitch count angel: 107 x 67, star 12 x 11, star 5 x 5, wings 38 x 60
2 over 1
 DMC & Kreinik #4
14ct brown perf. paper

We had some bad winds before this last storm and went out to find a tree that split near our driveway. Luckily, it fell away from the road.. but we had to have it taken down as the wind was causing it to get tangled up in other trees -  at least it fell away from the power lines.

Hopefully, this month I'll get some smalls finished.
Have a wonderful day!
