Indigo Buntings

We have had a lot of action at our bird feeders  
We have had the usual blackbirds, starlings, mourning doves, blue jays, chickadees but, we have had some other guests.  
We have had three Indigo Buntings at the feeders.  
If you click on the picture you should be able to see the one on the feeder. 
They are very bashful and will fly off if I try to get closer. 
We have also had Gold Finches and a female Cardinal.
These birds just stop for a short time before going deeper into the woods. 
We'll get Gold Finches again late summer when they are migrating south.  
I've seen hummingbirds but, I haven't had luck with feeders.  
I usually get them in late summer when they feed at my petunias.   
Buster was helping me stitch this morning while we watched the talking heads.  
Update on Merrily....sorry about the winkles.  
The whole thing!
I'm about half way done with the motifs.  
Was cleaning up my sewing room today.  
We have company coming next weekend.
Not everyone is staying here but, never know what is going to happen.  
While I was doing that, took a look at my Stitch9challenge projects.  
I need to check to see what the due date is on that.  
Don't know if I will finish them all.  
I keep wanting to start other projects.  
It is just too much to handle monogamy.....LOL!
Horrible weather all over this weekend.  
We are on the cold side of the front, never got above 45 and it has been raining.  
I also have a head cold.  
Good weekend to get it, I should be recovered in time for company!

Hope you had a productive, safe weekend.  
Have a great week. 
Keep on Stitching


  1. Hope you feel better very soon, especially with guests coming. Your BBD is beautiful. It looks like it will be finished very soon.

  2. We've had different birds this week also.
    Grosbeaks, a LOT of Orioles, Bluebirds, Hummies, and even saw a Scarlet Tanager! So pretty!
    Buster is too cute.
    Great progress on Merrily!
    Have a great week!

  3. Super shot of the Indigo Bunting! You have made awesome progress on the BBD. Sorry to hear about the cold; hope you are feeling better so you can enjoy your guests' visit.
