One more part of Quaker Ball is ready. It is a beautiful bird, which resembles totem birds of the Indians of North America, Alaska or Canada. The difference is that their birds most often have spread wings. This one of mine has lowered wings and round heads, so it looks like an Owl. Here is the link to the article “The History and Significance of Totem Poles”, and in one of the pictures, there is a bird with lowered wings. https://www.akwildlife.org/news/the-history-and-significance-of-totem-poles

A new cross stitch chart at our shop presents Bohemian Waxwings.
These birds are social birds that form large, compact, and noisy groups-sometimes in the thousands – as they scour the landscape looking for fruit during the nonbreeding season. They dangle on flimsy branches to reach fruit or perch side by side in fruiting trees. Bohemian Waxwings live in Northern forests of Eurasia, Canada and Alaska.
