A finish, a progress picture & update

I finished Crows today! What a FUN stitch!!!!!! I am going to make this into a small pillow with the cracked walnut shells as the filler. I bought this bag a long time ago & it is about time to use it!!
I worked on my B. Potter a little more in the month of Oct. I don't work on it a lot, but I love it every time that I do!
I gathered my supplies for the Christmas stocking SAL today. I need to start it real soon. I think it is going to be so pretty! I will keep you in suspense as to what color scheme I chose!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! We did!!! We went to Hobby Lobby & got a mat board cut for my Bethlehem piece.
We took a walk yesterday afternoon, so I am attaching a couple of those pictures too! Mr. Cardinal is in my bird bath.
Have a great week!!!!!

Crows is sooo sweet. I can't wait to see it made into the pillow.

Cardinals are a favorite of mine. I love catching them in the snow. Bright red against the white landscape makes my heart sing.

You've been very busy, Shari! Your crow finish is darling--can't wait to see it finished as a pillow...

That cardinal certainly is enjoying himself, isn't he? Too cute :) I guess he's enjoying one of the last warm days of fall.

Hope your week is going well so far!
