In my hoop~ Frost Forest #4
I'm excited about stitching the squirrel, acorns and the rabbit (already stitched). 
The trees in this one make me smile too.

Sewn~ Some drink coasters for a friend.
He owns a VW bus and camps with us and he has a little chihuahua too.
Ignore the chihuahua hair all over the chair in the background. This IS my chihuahua's chair and I was in a hurry when I took the photo.  I wanted to gets these cute little coasters mailed off to TN as soon as possible.
My friend is also a veterinarian so he won't mind the added dog hair. 

In my backyard~ Hahaha, not really. But this incredibly cool vulture was about 2 streets over.
I took my son to snowboard on a big hill down the road and while watching him, I spotted two vultures.
I love them.

I've been looking for a cross stitch pattern with vultures in it. If you know of one, I'd love to hear what it is.
I did purchase ' Away We Ride' by Blackbird Designs thinking I could change the three crow looking birds in it to look more like vultures.

Happy stitching!

Love all your stitching. Their used to be a program that changed photos to cross stitch. Not sure if it's still out there.

Have you seen Vulture's Welcome from Designs by Lisa? Or V is for Vulture by Amy Bruecken? Super progress on FF #4 and the coasters look great.

Your embroidery will be lovely.
I love your coasters, your friend will be happy to get them. It's a great fabric for VW bus campers.

The coasters are just perfect! I have thought about trying to get a sew along started for Away We Ride. What do you think of that idea? Sorry , I have never seen a vulture pattern.

Those coasters are so cool! I love them -- bet your friend will too. Chihuahua hair and all. :D Lovely stitching too!

Love the bunny in frost forest. Those vultures look huge in your photos, it would make me nervous to have them in my neighborhood.

Your Frosty Forest is looking DIVINE! :)
And I do so love those coasters :)
Vultures...ugh....I don't care for them but I will say, when they are flying and riding the air currents they are beautiful!
