With Christmas over, and gifts distributed, I can share a little of what I have been up to during this quiet time. I had been so focused on getting ready for the holiday that I'm afraid I was neglecting the blog.
One thing I did was to get out my knitting needles to make this for my granddaughter. It is something she will have to grow into, since the pattern size is apparently larger than the sizes available in the store. The pattern is a Bernat Chevron Jumper from their Hooray for Stripes book.
Another thing that I have been able to do recently is get some splendid photos of birds that I'd like to share with you. We've had several visits from this bird of prey, which we are speculating may be a Northern Harrier, though it looks more like a Prairie Falcon.
Since we added a suet feeder, we have also had several Downy Woodpeckers visit. Here are a couple of shots of one of them.
I apologize for the fuzziness on the pictures. One thing I haven't gotten to is washing my windows.
I hope you have enjoyed your Christmas holiday and that 2012 proves to be a wonderful year for everyone.
Until next time, I wish you peace and all good.
