Mrs. Cardinal

With the snow we had Sunday, I could no longer resist putting out bird food.  I had not seen any cowbirds in a few days, though I did see starlings.
  I am not even sure I got back in the house before the birds were out there. 

Luckily, I have only seen a couple of cowbirds, and the feeder still had food in it this evening.  I think maybe now I can continue to put feed them.  I don't mind feeding a few starlings and cowbirds, but I don't want to put out the birdseed and them get it all. 

We always I spread a some seeds for the squirrels...there are only a couple that regularly. come unless it gets real bad.  And I don't even mind then.  The little songbirds do not seem to be bothered by them.

Hi, Sandra!

Every time I see a cow on someone's blog, I think of Sandra, the Madsnapper.  So, I thought I would post this for her.  Any time I see a good cow picture, I think of her, sometimes even tell her about it.

I have started a new project in the sewing department.  Another quilt of course.  It is going to be a slow process.  I don't even know how many 'blocks' I have to make.  The blocks in this quilt are actually triangle shaped when finished.  Maybe I should call them units. 

I actually took time to make a sample block from some of my regular fabrics.  It goes together easy.  So I have started to cut the batiks.  It is batik fabrics my daughter bought...plus some from my stash.  The best I can do, it is still somewhat slow cutting.   So it will be a while before I have anything to show you.

We are supposed to get freezing rain tonight....I am hoping that it does not get bad.  Have things to do tomorrow, and may not be on here much but will probably catch up with you tomorrow night if nothing else.
