I filled the bird feeders up 3 days ago and see today they have completely emptied one of them. And if you enlarge the image you will see a bird on the green feeder. I enjoy hearing the birds sing. I haven't got my hummingbird feeder out yet, but will soon.
The buttercups are starting to bloom there are several patches of these throughout the yard.
I also noticed the crocus are about to open the beautiful blooms, I just love these, but they don't last long. They are so pretty when they are open the almost don't look real. Mkaes you want to touch them and see if the are fakes.
And the biggest sign is the fish are no longer lethargic, they are starting to move about, enjoying the sun. The bigger ones dove to the bottom when they seen me coming but I managed to capture some of the smaller ones. It's still too early to start feeding them, they do not digest food well until the water temp stay at least 50% or above.
The disappearing nine patch I made for QWL, I had planned on getting a small border on and sandwiched this past weekend but ended up in the bed sick. Stress does me like that. I had a few stressful moments last week that did me in. I'm feeling a little better today, so maybe I can manage to get these ready to be quilted. The pic is blurry but you get the idea, It needs to be pressed!! I also got the firecracker blocks put together, It needs a border, I just don't know what. The fabrics used in this top all look like they came from ties. For some reason my picture taking is not to clear today to see the details, I don't know if it me or the camera. I also made a few things for a very sick little girl. I made her a small activity tote just big enough to hold a crayon roll-up and a activity book, stickers and things of that sort she will be able to do if she does get to feeling like doing something. I learn how to do the 2 basic stitches in tatting. At first I knew I was doing something wrong because my stitches were sliding on the ring thread and not the shuttle thread, but once I figured the problem out I was off and running. What caused my problem was my knot was not transferring over, this is a must or it just won't work. Thought I share that in case someone has this problem. It took me longer to figure out the problem then it did to figure out the method. I'm not too happy with the shuttle I got, it was the only ones they had so I got it. I think my sister or a friend might be sending me one of the clover shuttles which has been recommended by both. I haven't got very far on my Pay it Forward gifts, I needed certain colors of floss so we made a trip to Micheals for that. I'm dangerous in that store every time I go in there my bill is ridiculous. I went for 4 skeins of floss and ended up buying about 40, not to mention all the other things. It doesn't help me when Cliff adds things to my cart either.
