June Smalls SAL

As promised, here's a pic of my smalls finish for this month. It is a freebie from Lori Brechlin of NotForgotten Farm and is just perfect to ring in summer.

I'm not able to use my sewing machine yet since my surgery but I originally thought I would finish this as a pincushion. However I have since had a second thought that might work out and would not require any sewing. If I go ahead with this idea I'll post a picture of the finish.

Speaking of summer, my favourite winged visitors have returned to our neighbourhood. That's right, the Cedar Waxwings are back and are busy removing all of the berries from my neighbour's tree. We have a perfect vantage point for taking pictures from our yard and I love watching the little thieves (they do look like that, don't they?) as they clean off the branches.

What is your problem? Are you watching me?
It's promising to be a beautiful summer week's end here and I hope that you all get in a little time with the needle soon!


  1. Beautiful finish! I'm looking forward to see how you finish it without sewing. I haven't finish-finished any of my smalls yet!

  2. So sweet! I just noticed the Cedar Waxwings today. They eat the berries off the bushes at the library.

  3. Oh my - what a lovely finish. Love your pictures.

  4. Lovely finish! Curious to know about your "no sew" finish idea!

  5. Love the last pic of your feathered friend, he does look like he's got attitude!

    Super finish for this months smalls SAL.

  6. Sweet finish! Love the bird pics.

  7. A wonderful smalls finish. Beautiful bird photos.

  8. I just love the bird pictures, your Not forgotten Farm pattern is so sweet thank-you for sharing.


  9. The Cedar Waxwings are certainly very charming! Congrats on your latest finish Lynn, it's a lovely design.
    Best wishes.

  10. Oh Lynn, such a great little June finish. And so great that it is a freebie as I'm looking for monthly freebies at the moment. I'll have to go her site and download it.

    We don't have that lovely bird here in Europe. We have another kind of waxwings, the Bohemian waxwing, but unfortunately not in my region. I have seen them only once when they were flying through in the spring to their northern breeding places. They made a stop in the surrounding gardens and ate all the remaining berries from the autumn before. It was so great to watch them.
