Happy 100th Post with Birds, Flowers, and a Finish....

Clapping and shouting, please!  

This is my 100th post.  I started a little slow, but have done better this year with a couple of posts a week.  I've used this blog to share the good and the bad, but mostly used it to clear my mind.  It's been good....

I've got a finish to share!  I started this Pineberry Lane pattern a year ago.  Ironically, I started it at the stitching retreat I went to last April in Modesto and am leaving tomorrow for this year's retreat.  I will be dragging it along so I can get it finished, finished.  If you look carefully, once again it doesn't exactly match the pattern.  I miscounted (SURPRISE!) and had to fudge a little.  I thought about frogging, but the part that would have to go was the big, red M.  We all know that when you pull out over-dyeds, they usually leave a stain, so I decided to just go with the flow.  

I am just glad that I finished.  LOL

Now, some flower pictures to share.

I put this rose bush in about 4 or 5 years ago.  It is my husband's favorite and one of the few bushes that has made it through the drought intact.  The flowers are big and fluffy...and have a beautiful scent!

Now for the birdies...I found this nest in a wreath on my back porch.  Love, love the blue eggs.

I almost missed the nest completely, except momma bird flew into me when I startled her.  I was busy watering and didn't even see her coming!  

Ok, peeps, off to take my walk.  Be back in four days with some finishing pictures.  Take care, be kind to one another.

    I love your finish!!! So pretty and fun! Can't wait to see what you do with it!
    I know the retreat will be fun! I've never been to one.
    The bird nest is sweet--the eggs are a beautiful color! You will have to dodge that mother bird for a while!
