I love to watch these sweet little birds!
I have Incorporated that into my CQ Yellow color study ; here is a little bit I have done this week:
It is a little hard to translate this into needle work of this kind. If I were doing Japaneses Silk embroidery using traditional silk on silk (Think Helen Stevens) I would have a stunning smooth image
Here is one of Helen's' beautiful creations:
But for my CQ block I am taking lots of artistic license with this humming bird: I've used a rubber stamp to stamps my image.
I used 2 strand Floche, 2 strand DMS variegated and 2 strand metallic
Looking at the bird after the fact, I probably should have chosen a block without flowers. Part of the fun of doing CQ It is very impromptu and FUN, nothing serious going on here!
I love the Mornings here in Texas, they are so peaceful. We've settled in to a very healthy rhythm of life and we are feeling very blessed. Morning for me is the time to get things done, it is just to hot after 3 to think about anything other than winding the day up - for me at least.
My mornings are up early, time in the Word and prayer, the little bit of house work required here and then I walk three miles with my sweet friend Pam. Generally I work from 10-3. Time for a swim and dinner. I feel very fortunate in that I am living a life I have actually dreamed of. Of course I miss my family and friends back east that goes without saying but I am grateful since we had to move for work and for calling, we moved to the south west and love it!
I read this morning in Proverbs 22:
'He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed, for he giveth of his bread to the poor'
I don't want my eyes to ever stop seeing need , I always want to have that drink and that food and that cloak and that visit for the person who needs.
I know I shall always be in need of the Love and Mercy of the Lord and I do not want to deny those which The lord brings into my life.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Ginny thank you for sharing those images of the humming bird - this is the first time I have had something I have known to compare their size with - I also have Penstimon flowers in my garden.
Love your fabulously textured hummer.
Ohh sis, this isssoooooooo gorgeous, those humming burds are amazing ( as is the silk on silk, wow!)
I love your stamped yellowy embroidered one though, thanks for sharing itl
I love the verse you closed with, the great thing as I read this one in my devotions yesterday.
Psalm 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
Isn't it wonderful the way Gods word ties together???
Thanks again for sharing sis, I pray for you and Steve everyday.

I love hummingbirds, but they aren't as nice as they look. They fight a lot. One was injured in a fight on my son's back deck and he got to hold it. Beautiful picture and the embroidery is spectacular. Have a great day in hot Texas. :)
