Half way to the birds

Here is my progress on Celtic Birds - I find that I'm getting into a rhythm with the 40 count linen. I won't lie and say it's my favorite but once in a while I'll give it a go. And it does look really nice when finished. Many months ago I did a Blackbird Designs piece called Vintage Bloom - my mother fell in love with it. I think for Mother's Day this year, I'm going to redo this piece on 40 count linen and then buy one of those pretty ceramic oval boxes with the hinged lid to put it in. I know she will love it.

Last night I worked on block five of the Village. This will be a quick month because most of it is wording . I love those wordy months! :-)

One last photo of Clancypug. He always sits with me at night while I stitch. It's a dark photo but I didn't want to bug him by using the flash. He is such a sweetie. He sits on my right side on the couch and I've learned to use his body as an arm rest.

What a sweetie! I have a mutt you can have if you want, it's sunny and warm here today and she loves to roll in the yard when it's like that. I just cleaned a bunch of grass off of her, LOL. I need to get back to the VoHRH, love that piece.
