The towels are beautiful; I love lighthouses and have been fortunate enough to see some on the East Coast and on the Gulf of Mexico in MS and TX.
Oh and the bird pictures are awsome; what a great hobby to have.

Love the Lighthouses. Another job well done by Beverly. Love the bird pictures too. The first time I saw a Stella Jay I thought it was a mutant of the Eastern Blue Jay. My DSIL straightened me out very quickly. Juno

Thanks, I am so happy I got an embroidery machine! I have a new task, DGS needs all his towels for college monogrammed, as they keep disappearing. I'm going to use the monogram I digitized to put on his hooded fleece jacket a couple of years ago.

The year before he was killed, DH and I took a car trip along the WA, OR and CA coast and he took photographs of almost every lighthouse. I have several of them printed and framed in my hall "gallery".
Thanks! I just finished adding yet another one, a (young) male Downy Woodpecker. FINALLY! Woo Hoo! :-)

Thanks, I thought it would be the perfect TY for this particular person, as she obviously loves them too.
Steller's Jays are soooo shy! I have seen them several times, but by the time I creep over, turn on the camera, and gently slide open the patio doors, they fly off. This one must have been really hungry!

So pretty!!! What a great thank you gift. I'm sure your cousin will be delighted.
The birds are so much fun. I could not get a picture before it took off, but the hawk lit on the deck railing right outside my bedroom window yesterday. It has perched on the pergola above the deck before, but this is the first time I've seen it on the deck railing. I was standing by the window talking on my cell phone. I told Mom, "I have to hang up now and see if I can get a picture of the hawk." lol She said "OK!! Love you! Bye!!!" Mom understands these things. But before I could snap the picture, it turned its head, looked me right in the eye and then took off.
It was extremely cool.

Really nice! I'll bet they were thrilled. (Beautiful house they have.)
Lovely Jay. I sometimes get one, probably blown down here from the Sierras, and it's always a thrill. My son, the one who hikes, says he's had them take bread from his hand when he's hiking in the mountains. He takes a bit of sandwich and hold it up over his head, and the Steller's Jays swoop down and take it from him.
You've got a wonderful variety of birds, lots of color. I have some of the same ones, but you have many more species. The past year or two, we've been having Oregon Juncoes come. There's a downy-headed woodpecker who works over my old trees, and sometimes a flicker -- I think I told you already that the first time I saw one, I thought I was hallucinating. Seeing an obvious cartoon bird in my back yard! My fanciest of late are a flock of blue pigeons, all with iridescent collars. Big! They're very satisfying for color, but they must belong to someone around here.

She was! It's a pleasure to make things for people who appreciate the effort. :-)
I have captured picture of only a small percentage of the birds who regularly visit here. Most of them are quite skittish about humans, even the ones who feed them. :-}

Thanks, and yes they were.
The beach house is fabulous. It sits right on the oceanfront, although far enough ifrom the actaul waves that it feels safe. I am deeply envious. :-}
So far the Steller's have been exceedingly human-shy. I have seen them several times, but they have always taken off the minute I approach. I was lucky this time.
My life-list contains several hundred bird species, most of them seen locally and most of those in my own yard. I just wish I had had a digital camera all along.
Flickers are indeed strange looking. The band-tailed pigeons I get are almost surely wild. Along with the Mourning Doves, they are usually the largest birds at my feeders.
