Hummer Tablecloth Progress

I am enjoying putting the flying characters on this tablecloth. At about half finished with the birds there are a few things becoming apparent with the design so far. The flying guys don’t seem to have as much to do with thoughts about the future design of the folaige and blossoms around them as the perched ones do. These are the kinds of thoughts going through my mind as I look at the last two finished. A female and male in close quarters. Their position seems to suggest a chase is in motion.

Healing…

Been doing a lot of patience building as I wait for my broken collar bone to heal, 6-10 weeks seems like forever. I am able to use my right arm in limited motions close to my body so I am starting a tablecloth embroidery. Gotta have something for my hands to do at night.
For those of you who know me you are probably saying, “Another one”? Yep this one is a favorite subject of mine. Can you guess?

I am looking forward to Spring’a arrival to be able to put out the humming bird feeders. I am also planting their favorite flowers this year too and just can’t wait to sit out on my deck drinking morning coffee and watching these little guys fly around.
