Well, the hawks have fledged. Yesterday there was only one in the nest and by some time in the afternoon that one was gone too. Bill said that when he came in he saw one of the adults on top of the building "talking" to the remaining youngster in the nest - probably trying to convince him/her to fly. I only got one lousy picture yesterday.
I miss the hawks! It was so fun to watch them. But, I'm glad it was a successful family and hopefully they will stay in the area.
Believe it or not, I am doing a Tiny Needle Tuesday post! I've been in the mood to stitch again and so last Friday I finished up Fox Forest! (And ironically or coincidentally, a fox ran in front of my car this morning as I was driving through Valley Forge Park!)
This piece is supposed to have the entire alphabet on it - all the letters floating all over the piece, but I decided I didn't like that. Instead I stitched my initials and then 2020. I like the 2020 which I did over 1 thread - wish I had done the same for my initials (which I did over 2), but I wasn't about to rip them out.
And, I started a new piece. A small by Blackbird Designs called May Basket. Here's where I am - close to half finished.
I've stitched a number of smalls. Usually I just sew some backing fabric to them and stuff them as pin cushions. I have an old dough bowl that is filled with them.
I'll save my knitting updates for another day.
Meanwhile, there was more rhubarb to harvest and Mailing sent me a link for a rhubarb cordial (Smitten Kitchen). I got that mixed up last night.
Rhubarb, a little sugar, gin and some orange peel. It has to sit for about a month and then I can strain it and serve with a splash of soda. YUM!!!
I have quite a few folks in today for budget meetings...a busy day. Hope you are all well!
