Weathering (or should that be feathering?) the Storm plus Stash Report


My stash report is short & sweet.  None new in, none new out.  I have continued to work on blocks for my One Block Wonder quilt.  That’s about all I’ve done quilty.  I haven’t even touched the longarm since I took my last customer quilt off.  Well, I have touched it, just haven’t turned it on…lol.  I have that king size quilt of my own all ready to go and just can’t get motivated.

Our blizzard brought much needed moisture to our area, and for that I am very grateful.  It did ruin the blooms on my magnolia bush, though. 😦   I’m not sure how the tulips will fare, but I suspect better than the magnolia.  So much of it is already melting away.

I thought I’d share a few pics I took of the birds that were seeking shelter on my patio, and congregating in my tree for food, during the blizzard.  There were finches, doves, red wing blackbirds, blue jays, sparrows, grackles, starlings, and something I didn’t recognize.

During a time when they had flown back out and away from the patio, I slipped some seed out there in an old cat food bowl that was still out there on a bottom shelf.  When they came back, they had a nice surprise.

These are eating seed that they had knocked out of the feeder.

I tried to keep seed out for the, and the trees in my yard were full of birds most of the day.

And you thought from the title that this was going to be about quilting, didn’t ya? 🙂

Snow is good for something else, besides moisture.  Snow ice cream!

It was fun while it lasted, but now bring back Spring! Have a great week everybody!
