It's a good thing I take my camera with me when I head outdoors here ~
I never know what I'll find!
I heard a ruckus on the side of the house ~
the chickens were whoop-ing it up and the peacock was sounding-off…
...a sure sign of interlopers somewhere near the barnyard.
and so I rounded the corner and here they were:
a 'murder' of crows ~
yes, a group of crows is called a 'murder'…
...but it eerily suits-them.
I love them.
they are always welcome here.
I love their sleekness and depth of colors in their otherwise black feather-suits.
I love their eyes, their beaks and their legs!
…if I was blessed to keep company with one and tame it ~ I think my life would be complete.
(oh, and an owl too ~ don't forget the owl…hush-up Joan)
|4 juvenile corvine paying in the yard ~ almost oblivious to me…except that on on the far left.|
...he has his eye on me!
I've watched crows since I was young…
I love to hear them crackle & growl from the tree-tops ~
I enjoy their antics and their acute intellect.
|now the one in the middle sees me….|
I wish I could wrap my arms around one of their necks & fly off…
how fun would that be?
|uh-oh…the jig is up.|
now they ALL see me!
Good-bye my friends ~
...come back again soon!!
Thank you for the visit :)
I've been stitching on my 40ct Old Farmhouse Linen…
~ working on a really cool little project that will be available soon.
(me thinks you'll be pleased)
I'm using 1 strand of floss over 2 threads of 40ct. linen.
|small work makes me happy|
|you can see a penciled-line on my linen ~|
that's to keep me from stitching outside the design
... because the finish will be attached to a small box-lid
it will be one design in a series of designs
that I'm working on…
based on the stitching of a fictional woman's sewing necessities ~
|quiet and peaceful|
do you like my little needle-keep?
it's magnetic ~
I took an early mother of pearl sparrow button and glued a magnet on the back
then put another small magnet under my linen…
|a useful thing….|
I'll leave you with this link to visit a blog with poems about Crows ~
Hoping you enjoy many little stitches today
and perhaps a visit or two from your neighborhood crows!
* Blessed be *
