Romancing the Wren!!!


I finished my stitchery today using my newly purchased Hanky linen and it's so lovely to stitch with.


I have a little scollaped edged bird bath in my garden, just outside my sliding door... it's pretty much in clear view from inside our house and especially when I am at the computer. I had a pair of mating wrens that would stop frequently for their bath last year, and have also returned this year. So that's how this little design came about...Romancing the Wren!




The red in the pics seems a bit more intense than it really is!



You might have to click on this pic to be able to see that the little female wren is having her bath as the male sits on the edge to keep watch.

A little fabric and ribbon purchase...sometimes it sits on my desk for weeks before I can put it away! Lol! I am sure you can all understand!

I hope you have all had some time for stitching this weekend. It seemed like ages since I had done any hand stitching as most of my time has been spent painting and my sewing mojo seemed to be MIA, but so pleased it is now back!

Very cute little stitchery Lisa, you have a lovely style. Where did you get the hanky linen from?

I've never heard of hanky linen before, but now I'm going to have to search some out.

As usual your design is just lovely and perfect. I love bird baths and watching the comings and goings of the birdies.
