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.

Here is the chart I used for the front of my Maria Scissors' fob plus a slightly different version that I did after I stitched mine up. The other chart is the same colors but a floral pattern instead.

The dog days of summer are here, vacation is past and school is getting ready to start. Maybe I will be more consistent with posting - I always mean well, but I seem to get sidetracked onto other things alot. It is definitely time to get charting and stitching again!
