All the rain that we have been having has been good for the garden (as well as for the mosquitoes). We are certainly enjoying all the lovely blooms and looking forward to good eating too. I find that gardening is a good balance to my quilting addiction.
The addition of this idler bar to the quilt frame will mean fewer adjustments will be needed when quilting long quilts.
Things haven't totally gone to the birds around here. Helen, the multi-tasker extraordinaire, is piecing a top, pricing new supplies, and quilting a quilt for a client. Just a typical day in the studio.
Okay, this will be the last post in the Robin series. We caught this short video of one of the fledglings preening his feathers shortly after leaving the nest. Best of luck to the young birdies. Now we can clean off the deck.
We could spend all day watching our little birdies grow, but then ...
To get a break from bird watching we set up a camera tp record a time lapse video of the activity. They sure have been busy! We've posted a link to it on our home page.
Watching the daily feeding frenzy of our 5 young robins reminds me of this poem by Shell Silverstein.
Oh, if you're a bird, be an early bird
And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.
If you're a bird, be an early early bird -
But if you're a worm, sleep late.
