Humming Bird Update and More on Fair tatting

Our humming birds fight with each other, over our feeder, but this one got out of hand!
we were inside and herd a little thump on the window. 

We ran outside and under the rocking chair knocked out, with feet up in air twitching, was this little fellow.
My husband picked him up and blew cool air on little bird.
 Like picture below he did not look good, we felt horrible.


 He opened his mouth and eyes, I ran and got the camera, and after 10 minutes  he opened his wings and laid there for another five opening and closing his eyes and I put camera down. 


He finally stood up and chirped a tiny chirp.  I have to say these are clear pictures and he is a beautiful creature.

He then hoovered and flew away.  They have got to stop this fighting it is too stressful on me :)

Some phone pictures of fair and tatting
I have seen this pattern somewhere, and her name was covered very pretty though!

Some Items at the fair, one other tatting piece is midway down right side in red!

They told me that her baby bonnet would have taken first place but she entered it in wrong category!
Her first name is Mary and they said mine was not soft enough thread, but I was the only entry in bonnets, so I got the first place.

I thought of Margarets Designer Cards and Marianne's when I saw this which said " My husband said it was either him or scrap-booking.... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest pages!
The card were not like you-alls so I didn't post them :)

  4. Glad the hummingbird was ok! I enjoyed the pics of the fair. What a shame about Mary's bonnet; making sure you get the right category and follow all the rules is part of entering a competition.

  5. Yes it requires more reading and I even had to call down there to ask a couple of questions as well.

  6. Well I love your hummingbird, we don't have them in the UK, so pleased he got better. What a pity about the bonnet, it's a beautiful piece of tatting.
    Just had a laugh at the end, I am hoping that the craft room will take all my stuff when it finally gets done. It could be my husband going to live in the shed if it does not.

    1. I know,that is funny when we crafters dive into something we don't think about anything else!

  7. Nice the hummer wasn't badly injured, and so good you were there to help him over the shock of running into the window. Sometimes if you put up a second feeder a little further away, the fighting slows down. (hard enough protecting one feeder, but two is too exhausting!) Congrats with your tatting at the fair. Loved the scrapbooking bit!

  8. Poor little hummer! Glad he is Ok. He may have been attacking his mirror image in your window, thinking it was a rival, then he hit the window,..minor concussion as a result.
    There is a lot of tatting going on in the Tennesse valley, but you were the best !

  9. That poor little guy! I hope he makes it okay. He may not remember who he is! So glad he seems to have recovered. The Texas State Fair starts in a week or so. I cant' wait to see the arts barn and all the projects this year.
