Some progress

I managed to spend a good portion of yesterday evening working on Easter Fairy. I didn't feel like stitching alone so I called up Pam who is one of my few stitching friends and asked if she'd like to join me. She gladly accepted. I don't get to stitch with Pam often since most of her free time is spent on decorative or tole painting. She's working on a landscape pattern, the name of which escapes me right now. We had a great evening, stitching and catching up with all the local news! Here's a picture of my progress so far.
I'll soon be ready for the sparkle in the wings but at the moment I've misplaced my Kreinik thread. I know it's here somewhere, I saw it not all that long ago! Until I find it I'll just work around the area.
Work was quiet today so I managed to spend a little time working on my Britty Kitty. I'm hoping we have the same kind of a day tomorrow and then I'll be able to update you on my progress.

There won't be much time for stitching tonight. I've already got a pan of peanut butter brownies in the oven for tomorrow's potluck.After supper I still have a bit of cleaning to finish and I'll be heading to bed early. Five o'clock comes much too quickly!
I'll leave you with a picture of the downy woodpecker I snapped this week. Bob and I were seated in the dining room when we spotted it. I'm playing around with my new digital camera so I grabbed it and used the zoom lens to see how well it would perform. I was pleased with the results!!
