Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Three Christmas ornaments for three young ladies

I finally made it to the bead shop and got the beads I needed to decorate the little Christmas ornament designs (adapted from a chart in  BH&G 2012 Christmas issue) I stitched for three sisters earlier in the month.  Tonight I stitched them up.

So, that makes five Christmas ornaments finished in February.  Not my best effort!  In March I plan to stitch the Christmas ornaments for my actual and honorary great-nieces and great-nephews (seven in all).

I just had to pop back in to show you what I found in my garden tonight. It's the tawny frogmouth that lives in the area.  I've taken pics of him in the garden before, but his visits are few and far between. When I took Miss Maddie out to answer a call of nature late tonight I saw him sitting on the old fence post.  He waited for me to get Maddie in and find my camera. I had to take the pictures 'blind' as I could see nothing at all in the view finder.
 then he moved to the fence
Here's a close-up
I feel very honoured that he has graced us with his presence yet again.
