All Is Revealed!

Okay, I guess I left you hanging long enough ;o) LOL! I was surprised that a few of you actually guessed what it was. I'm impressed! So without further ado (Patty!), here is Piping Plover by Crossed Wing Collection -


At least she looks like one now :o) These little birds are so cute and the only thing that's even more adorable is seeing the babies. I've only seen them once in my life but I will never forget it. I wish I was able to photograph them that day. So any ideas about what's going in that blank space to the left?

Unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to stitch. I actually made sure I sat myself down this morning to get some in before I took the picture. The weather has been so beautiful that I find myself out every day and then at night I'm too tired to pick up the needle. I would really like to get this project out of the way and get back to Sabrina.

Yesterday I went to the little city and found some new fabric to add to my stash -


I thought the frogs were really cute although I wish they didn't have 'recycle' on the print. The other two are for breast cancer and have such pretty colors. I can't wait to finish something with one of those fabrics.

I was pleasantly surprised on Monday when I got the mail! Rachael had sent me a birthday package full of goodies -


Thank you! Look at the bunnies on the card! The Dragon Floss is yummy and I can always use a bookmark and beads :o)

I also want to thank Karen for my GC to 123 Stitch! That will definitely help me buy more NPI Silks for Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow :o)

Before I go I want to welcome all the new Pumpkin Stalkers! I hope you enjoy my Blog and thank you for taking the time to read it. I always love hearing from people so if you can, leave a comment :o)

I'm not a new pumpkin stalker but I'll comment anyway. ;-)

Love the pretty sandpiper. The fabric is really colorful. I can actually think of someone to make something for out of that fabric. Must check the stores for that one.

The new fabrics are so pretty. The frogs are cute. I have an emotional attachment to frogs since my youngest daughter loved them growing up.

Your new stitching piece is cute. I have to find my way back to my stitching. It's been far too long. Kinda hard for me to stitch when I barely find time to sit down.

Lots of Love

Your Piping Plover is so cute, there are some Crossed Wing Collection designs that I like, but I didn't know this particular one.

I love the piper. My guess is a nest with babies.

And your fabric is cute! DH loves the frogs!
