Rain Rain Go Away - Enough Already

I know, I know, we need the rain! I am so spoiled by the sunshine. When it is not here I complain.

The rain brought some welcomed guests to our pond. They had not been here in a long time.
I took the picture through the bedroom window as I did not want to disturb them.

The Wood Storks

In the last week we have had some other feathered visitors. We have been hearing them call "Bob White" for weeks and have seen a pair about a block from our house. I do not think this is the same pair we had seen but who can tell. They were busy eating near the back door.

Bob White Quail

Now these visitors kind of worried us. We checked each others pulses and they were fine. It was a hot day and both had a drink from the pond and a rest under the maple tree and then flew away. Not before he checked to see if she was interested in him. She said "No"!

Turkey Vultures

Did you think with all this bird watching I was not beading? Well you are partially right. I do lots when I go to Arts and Crafts at the Club on Tuesday mornings, but not so much at home or it would be done by now.

I did do a darling white Russian Spiral bracelet for a friend.
That meant not working on the Flamethrower. (May rename it "Sunset" what do you think?)

The needle below shows a mistake that I found on Monday night. I am not sure if I will tear out and repair or forget it as it is almost impossible to find. One of fringes caught two others. I cannot tell if the thread caught around the two or if I actually ran the needle through beads.

What would you do????

Hope your day is a sunny one no matter what the weather!

Love your bracelet and the birds!

I did NOT see any mistake in that bracelet!! But I do think its Flame Thrower, maybe Flame Thrower at Sunset, or Flaming Sunset combining both. Anyway, its cool. Love the pics of the birds. I just saw Turkey Vultures for the first time a few weeks ago. I have a mean Cardinal that is chasing all other birds away. Never saw anything like it. I'll be glad when mating season is over for him. I don't think he has a mate and acting the way he is, he won't!

"Hope your day is a sunny one no matter what the weather!" What is up with that? Makes me think, "Don't tell me what kind of day to have." OK, so I'm a little cranky. We have had nothing but COLD and RAINY weather. So glad you are back on the blog and jewelry making. I LOVE the fringe. Probably my favorite project EVER! Miss you, Amy
