We had some visitors today

We have cardinals all year round, but

look who she had over for tea.

This one little guy is looking at his reflection.

I've never had the fortune to see one of these lovely birds.  One of the neighbors said they are Cedar Waxwings.

So lovely.

Just saying...............

Getting old sucks!
and I'm sure I'm not alone with this feeling.


I've worked a long time finishing these blocks...yep I know I'm slow, but sewing is just for my own pleasure.  I added some of the sashing and laid them out on the bed.

I quickly saw that I was three blocks short.  No big deal.  I finally figured out that I was suppose to make four of the same block and put them in the corners.

Today, I went to take a couple of photos for my blog which I have definitely been ignoring since the holidays.


I can plainly see I've used two different background fabrics.  Why am I just seeing this today, I don't know.  Mick says I never notice anything.  Houses have been built in our neighborhood that I've never noticed going up.

Looks like I might have to get that cataract surgery sooner than I planned....:(
So much for working under Ott Lights.

I won the potholder on the right at Bunco when I was about 30....39 years ago.

It's seen better days.  Since it was always my favorite, I decided that I'd just make another.  I won't share how much fabric I used to make the one on the left....giggle.  I kept cutting it backwards.  Due to some cutting problems it came out a little smaller, and yes I forgot the inside lining and to quilt it.  Seems like more is going wrong with me than just my eyes.

Just saying...........

Yea!!!  My pity party is over.  Off to read.

Farm Girl Vintage Week 23

Winter Star


Woolly Sheep


These are the last two blocks.  I may need to redo the Winter Star.  Those points came out a little short.  You can see that I couldn't even crop it out for the photo.  May be too much to fudge.

I've really enjoyed these fun blocks and the book has many different settings using various blocks.


The only bad part of making scrappy blocks.....grin.


This was already partial cleaned up.

This little fellow was sitting on my mailbox watching the new house going in across the street.  I think he's hoping for a field mouse or something to come running out of the rubble.


We actually have sunshine this week and no rain or humidity....makes me smile!

Enjoy your weekend!
