When the weather forecast calls for "fresh winds coming from the north", that's code for dust.
The wind has been whipping around out there all day causing this little dove to hang on for dear life under very blustery conditions.
The little stitching was worked up this afternoon. Cross-stitching was my favorite hobby for years and years until I got hooked on crochet, but I really want to get back into it, so am starting small.Poor Jingles! She doesn't understand bad weather and has been driving everyone crazy begging to go outside. The balconies are covered in a layer of fine powdery red dust again so she'll have to wait.
