Things Are Ordinary

I went outside yesterday in the a.m. while it was still cool enough to week the garden. And upset the two sparrows who have a nest in the boxwood. Turns out one baby bird had left the nest was in perched on the side of a pot of petunias. I backed up and returned two hours and many degrees later to do the job. Baby bird was now huddled in the coleus and the sun had found him so he was trying to hide under a leaf. Those parent birds chittered and flittered all around me while I weeded. (Normally, I would have taken a pass, but the garbage truck hadn't come yet and I'm leaving on vacation soon!) I did the quickest weeding/trimming job ever and left the front yard after 20 minutes. This morning Ma and Pa Bird are still flitting around chirping. I don't know if the first bird made it back to the nest or away into the wide world. I'm pretty sure there's at least one more in the nest. Fly, baby birds, fly! 

I'm hoping someone out there in the cross stitch world can help me. 
I had an issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework that had a Mirabilia Halloween fairy in it. The year must be 2006 or 2007. I seem to have misplaced my issue. Can anyone tell me the exact issue so I know what to search for? Thanks!

Like I said, time for vacation to the land of the 603. Just taking works in progress with me. Nothing new. Nor am I looking for stash enhancement. May be able to post a photo or two while gone, but don't be surprised if you don't hear a lot from me. 

Today - time for more laundry and cleaning. And a much needed pedicure!

I have a copy in PDF if you'd like. However, none of the pages have the date/year on the magazine border.

Let me know your email address....

A quick search via Google came up with Sept 2008 for the Mirabilia Halloween fairy in CS&N mag. Good luck finding it in your magazine collection!

Thanks, Wendy. At least now I know what the cover of the issue looks like. If there's a hardanger project in that issue, I may know where the magazine is!
