Is it still winter??

I think Mother Nature is getting confused here in NW PA....today it was raining and windy, and felt like spring! Not at all wintry. (Not that I'm complaining, though!)

I spent the weekend stitching on the chickadee wreath. After doing more of the endless confetti, I finally got to a point where I could add some of the backstitching (on the right-hand side...some brown curly twigs and the outlining on the berries). I actually enjoy backstitching like that, where it is more than just an outline.

Oh, and Missy Ann asked what fabric I was using for this...it is another Silkweaver solo. In fact, it is the other half of the piece that I used for the Old Books sampler! I thought it provided a nice background, and looked suitably "woodsy."

Your chickadee looks terrific on this fabric. It will be so pretty when you finish it.
