May Visitors and Stitch from Stash update

Hello everyone,
Thanks so much for all your kind words.

Spring has finally arrived. In early May, our hummingbirds and rose breasted grosbeaks returned along with this lovely visitor who stayed for a few days at our feeders.

Our apple trees and crab apples have just started to show blossoms, and our pesky black flies have shown up.

Now, for my monthly update for my stitch from stash hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching. This month I spent most of my time working on the model stitching piece. I still have a bit more to go until it is done. I stayed off our computer so I can happily say that I stayed within my budget and still did not spend one cent.

I did finish the stitching on 3 smaller pieces that I had in my travel bag.

Stitch Count for each sled 17 x 31, 2 over 1
I still have to trim the perforated paper and attach them to the sleds, but they are mostly done.

Bucky and Samantha update: they don't like thunderstorms, they had their first encounter with a few  frogs that were out at night (I think they were more scared than the little peeper), they haven't figured out where the owl is - not for lack of trying, and they met our neighbor's Maine coon cat.

Until next time, have a wonderful day!
