Indigo Buntings

 INDIGO by © Pamela Kellogg

It was but once my eyes beheld a passing glimpse of you;
But never did my mind forget your stunning shade of blue!

This is a cross stitch piece that I designed years and years ago.  I think for Zweigart.  No, it's no longer available but I was reminded of it yesterday when I was out on my front porch and 2 Indigo Buntings flew past me and landed in my neighbors bushes.

I love these beautiful little blue birds.  The blue is so intense, you would think it would come off on your hands if you could touch one!

The orioles are already eating oranges faster than I can put them out there and my little hummingbird feeder is hopping.

Spring is such a beautiful season!

I have a quick little update for you on my 2nd Watermelon Purse:

I have a few more little do-dads to add to this and then the black "watermelon seeds".  I'm going out to my deck for a little while and then I'll finish this up.  I may even get the crocheted edging done tonight too!

Your work is so exquisite, Pam. I've often wondered if you've ever shown it at quilt shows. I feel crazy quilting is not "given any respect." I just put 3 in my guild show and they lump them into a category with yo yo quilts, photo transfer quilts, and the like. It's very discouraging and almost makes me want to not enter them, but if everyone thought that way, we wouldn't have shows to go to. Just wondering if you've had any experience with this.

I LOVE the blue butterfly on the Watermelon purse, it really makes the pinks pop. Too bad the Blue Bunting chart you created for Zwigert isn't available any more, it's beautiful, too.

Never seen an indigo bunting - don't think they come this far north.
