Bird watching report – I bought some grape jelly and put it out again and I’ve had many, many Orioles – have they been here all summer just waiting for me to feed them? I feel bad – I thought they had moved on!
When I’m still sitting on the porch at 8 pm, the cardinals show up at the feeder – with the juveniles along, too. I can recognize their “chirp” and I know they’re coming. It’s such deep dusk, I can’t see them very good but they’re there.
The second batch of barn swallows just hatched in the garage – man, that was fast! They make a mess on the floor but now I have a newspaper under their nest. Much easier to clean up!
I’ve got another great bunch of Dirty Dozen quilts to post!
Plus, Tad, the dragon – with the granddaughters. I did not realize he was soooo big!
I actually need to stop playing with fabric and clean tomorrow. I finished this book again – I loved it so much a couple years ago that I reread it. “Finding Gobi” – a marathon runner was competing in the Gobi dessert when this little brown dog showed up and ran with him. Thus the name Gobi.
A small box came in the mail today from Pam in Nebraska. Inside was an antique pincushion, maybe a dog? Very well used and a beautiful antique gold thimble with the initials ME engraved. I love both the dog and the thimble – THANK YOU, PAM! I have the nicest readers! I am blown away by the gift!
I think this is the first grouping of fabrics I’m going to work with and of course the minute I cut into new fabric, I will create more scraps so another scrap quilt is in my future!
I’m looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning!
