Buttonhole Eyelets and Chickadees

 Week 49 of TAST were these fun Buttonhole Eyelets.  I actually knew how to do the buttonhole stitch and bullion stitches before beginning the Take A Stitch Tuesday 2012 challenge but I had never put the two together. 
 I added a few random french knots and cretan and chain stitches to join them all together. 
 - 22 degrees Celsius today and every time Grant put his hand out the door with a few sunflower seeds, the chickadees were on his hand in an instant.  I had to take a few shots so I bundled up and took some pictures.
 On the wing to a branch but as soon as it's eaten he'll be back.
I stuck my hand out the door a few times as well and with my camera in my other hand snapped this picture of a most delightful experience with one of the sweetest of birds.
