Out of the nest and 3rd 25 motif challenge

Today was the day. I checked the baby bird this morning, while out hanging laundry on the line and it looked very alert and had most of it's feathers so I figured it was about ready to leave the nest.
I had to go in to work this afternoon to catch up on some things, but took the time to check on the bird before leaving and was I ever glad that I did.
Take a look at who I found out of the nest. Sitting on a branch just a little ways from the nest.

Here is a closeup. you can see the white eyebrows, wish I knew what kind of bird this is.
on that tatting side, I have decided to do another 25 Motif Challenge. I started my first one in june 2008. I don't know if you are supposed to count every item that you tat, or only those from different patterns. After finishing that one this spring, (well, if you count everything I tatted I finished it before Thanksgiving).
Then I tatted the items needed for my daughters wedding as well as a few other items. That would have been my 2nd full Challenge.
So I am going to start my 3rd one. I will put the list gadget back on my blog for this Challenge.


  1. Oh, the little young birdie is getting ready to fly away! They grow up so fast!!! Sniff...sniff...

    Thanks for reminding me about the 25 Motif Challenge!!! I better count the heart I just posted today! Better go edit that post...again! LOL!

    Thank you for entering my giveaway! Good luck to you!

  2. Hi TattingChic, you are really quick on the comments. have a good evening blog hopping. I will have to pop over to your blog again and check the changes.

  3. Ha ha! I am not always quick on the comments, LOL! I've been dealing with some health issues for the past several weeks and thusly have been "chianed" to the couch! The computer has been life a lifeline. Soon, however, I will be back to my normal routine and won't be online quite so much! I have enjoyed seeing those birdies grow up though!

  4. I have been wondering how you were doing, your posts have been so upbeat that I figured you must be getting better. I have enjoyed the birdies too.


I appreciate comments, Thank you for leaving one.
