I wanted to post this up on Monday, after my stay-cation, but this cute bird took a little longer than I expected. I finished off the row of flowers and squirrel, and love this proud peacock!
And when I saw Shannon from Love to Stitch - One Stitch at a Time working on her Birds of a Feather Le Printemps, Springtime girl, I decided it looked like a fun stitch so I pulled out my L'Ete in the series, Summer and decided to stitch a long with her!
I ordered up some 36ct hand dyed Sandcastle linen and using some WDW and GAST threads I got started and finished up one of the birds. I love this pattern so much with the water and boats, reminds me of both being by the lake and being by the ocean.
This is a fun stitch with all the outlining, only a few hours shows quite a bit of progress! :) If anyone else would like the join in doing these Birds of a Feather series, the more the merrier!
So during my stay-cation a lot of my time was spent Spring cleaning! Fun stuff! not so much!
But I did finally get to my favorite place for lunch by the lake, which is now open for the season...
It was a perfect day with a nice breeze off the water. I could have sat there for hours looking at all the boats and ducks. This cute guy was very brave... I think he was hoping someone would share a snack with him!
I also snapped a pic of this pretty pink Iris, it was such an unusual color I don't think I have ever seen one this shade.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and happy stitches! xxxx
