Hummingbird Hoedown


Click on images for larger views

Summer is winding down and the hummingbirds are extremely busy preparing to migrate. They are always fun to watch but especially so at this time of year. They get in quite a frenzy at the feeders right now. They are my favorite part of summer which is not my favorite season. (I'm opposed to anything that makes me sweat!) I wanted to make something special for my new friend Heather, so I polished up this design I had been working on and stitched it with fabric and floss that would match her favorite scissors. I waited to post it until after she received it so it wouldn't spoil the surprise.

Just found your blog today. Thank you so much for the wonderful fob patterns! I really didn't like my Maria scissors much until I saw your fob - can't wait to stitch it! Stop over and visit me sometime at my blog - the more the merrier!
