The Lit­tle Stitcher

Just Cross Stitch - - Recipes & Memories - Laura Ri­mola

Liv­ing in the coun­try al­lows me to be in con­tact with some wild an­i­mals, es­pe­cially with lit­tle birds, which, dur­ing the win­ter when the snow cov­ers the woods and food is scarce, fly to the near­est houses in search of nour­ish­ment. For sev­eral years, dur­ing Christ­mas­time and the whole win­ter, I have loved tak­ing care of them, pre­par­ing mix­tures of bis­cuits, seeds, fats, nuts and of­ten even in­sects. They thank me with their pres­ence, with their songs and their live­li­ness, which an­i­mates my gar­den and is a joy for my eyes. Lit­tle birds are truly a gift from na­ture, and their close­ness, es­pe­cially dur­ing the win­ter, re­minds us that beauty re­ally lives in lit­tle things.
