small sample of my crazy quilt embroidery

About Me

I am a consumate crafter. I knit, quilt both sane and crazy, scrapbook, bead, mosaics and any other thing I can think of along the way. Someday I also hope to do real glass jewelery and stained glass but those have to wait until I have room and more time.

Best Eatery in Town

Recently I made a trip to Wild Birds Unlimited. I bought a very nice quality birdfeeder for $15.00 which the little birds took too immediately. But it seems my best purchase was this seed block. It is intended to attract cardinals and nuthatches. And it has. But it has constantly been visited by so many other wonderful birds. And the nice thing is I can set it up so very close to my bedroom window. Taking pics is still not easy tho, as the light there is not the best and it is now so close the birds can see me and will take off if they see much movement. But I have enjoyed so many new birds with this seed block. The red headed woodpecker never came to the feeders before and he is a gorgeous sight. There is also a thrasher, although I do not know exactly which variety as it doesn't seem to be in my bird book. I sure need a new one of those.

Anyway, enjoy the pics. Thought they might bring some color to all of you still stuck in winter.






















This pic is of new dog, Holly, the smooth fox terrier mix eating what is left of a squirrel. But in the pic it looks like a fox tail lying there so I had to take it to show her daddy who was at work at the time. Of course, I then took it away from her and she was none to happy with me for that.




On the needlework front, I am almost done with a sweater that I have been dilegently working on for about 10 days. And I have a third crazy sock done. Not much sewing tho. I finally bought the 2 tables I intend to put my machines on and right now I am having to sand and stain them in the sewing room due to all the cold weather we have been having. So working around them is impossible. I will be done with table 1 today and then table 2 by this weekend. Then I can get back to the task of my quilt and also covering a dog bed to make it attractive enough to reside in the livingroom.

Nice bird pics. Woodpeckers love peanuts in the shell, if the Blue Jays don't eat all of them first.
