Mr. Mockingbird, who is never friendly and always cranky, hangs out in this little tree at the corner of our porch. He's always tweeting at something or someone, if we walk by, he flys away or jumps in the higher branches. I've been trying to capture his picture for months.
Finally, I was watching the kids further out in the yard while standing on the porch when I noticed him. He made some unwelcoming sound to me and I ran inside to get my camera. Closer and closer I approached until I was about five feet away and this time he did not fly away. I snapped several pictures of him as he carefully watched me while trying to look disinterested. I still dont think he likes me.
I painted an old brass frame a dark brown color. I've been trying to get to this project for awhile.
while, Grumpy splatter painted, which of course had to be framed.

I was not happy. Picture me squatting in the woods with a big frownie face.

These top 2 were taken about 8 pm, and it's about 2 inches of snow so far.

start making some applique quilts
Plush owls to sit atop a bed
a kindergarten mat for naptime with a pillow
try my hand at some felted acorns
Pillows. I dont ever make near enough
find something to do with all these scrapsI'm thinking clutches with pretty raggy flowers adorning it.
find something to do with all these too small minky dot pieces
I'm thinking the only thing I can do with them is either cut them up and put them in quilt (which I dont like), making pillows with them, or putting them on the backs of baby bibs or burp cloths.
That's all I got for now.

After much, too much time, I managed to get this quilt made. I bought bulks and bulks of these fabrics to have this quilt always available.
