Another quilt I finally finished. This was my big winter project last year. It took much longer than my typical winter hibernation period to put it together. I worked on it at my sewing group for many Tuesday mornings as well as at the October Retreat. I finally finished the top a few weeks ago. The binding got done yesterday. Whew! Doubt I ever make one of these again. I shipped it off to the recipient today.
I am counting it as a UFO finished this year too.
Steve brought home a new feeder and scrounged up an old feeder too. Last spring a bear destroyed all of our bird feeders and we hadn’t hung any up yet this year.
I find it very hard to get much done when the feeders are up in the winter. All I want to do is watch the silly birds fighting and feeding and flitting around. They are a joy to watch. I am “bird identity challenged” though, and have trouble deciding what I think each kind is.
Today brought a new variety to the feeder. I have never gotten a photo of this kind before. Anyone know what it is?
Some kind of sparrow? (too big)
A juvenile bluebird? (not a big enough belly…wait a few days!)
Maybe it’s a female purple finch?
Sure wish I was more knowledgeable about birds.
