Look what Ray made....

I think I posted that Ray has been working on a fountain for our courtyard? He finally finished it today, isn't it wonderful? He made the moulds, poured them in concrete, made all the parts & we found the birds at Wal-Mart. He drilled holes in them, put tubes in to make them "spit" water. I LOVE birds as everyone who reads my blog knows, so they're perfect! He says now that it's done that there is a thing or two he'd change, but I like it they way it is! :-) Here is a pic from further in the yard of the whole courtyard.

On the stitching front, I started something new today... will post a pic when it's done, likely in a few days. :-) I have been going through more stash & OMG, I didn't know I had so much fabric. I have 70+ pieces I'm going to list on my sale blog soon, and I haven't even gone though it all yet. It's unreal.... enough said!

Thanks for stopping by! Oh, and be sure to go down a couple of posts & see the Online Needlework Show RAK. You have until Sunday night to leave your comment! :-) Have a great rest of the weekend!!
