That was some frost we had overnight.
The book we are using in our quest to improve our knowledge. We did have a little snow on Saturday that really was short lived, it lasted for minutes and disappeared just as quickly. The snow is as illusive as capturing the birds on camera.
The patchwork throw continues to be the craft I seem to gravitate to at the moment, so is growing quite rapidly.
I still love the bright colours and the simplicity of it, but it is not the portable project I thought it was going to be. I have started to think about gifts for the coming months with so many birthdays and Easter. I do like to craft some part, if not all of the gift, made with love. So, once again I have been sorting through the endless craft materials to establish what I have available before deciding what to make. I now have a list of projects and feel as if I have achieved so much, there is nothing like a list to make me happy, I really do love a list. Maybe I should put on the top of the list, tidy up the craft room I have made such a mess sorting out the materials. Anyone else love lists?
Finally another pot holder, this time in preparation for Easter.
See you soon.
Yep, I love lists! I just wish the lists would translate more quickly into actual finished projects - sometimes I think I like the lists better than the doing! Love the Easter potholder.ReplyDelete
What beautiful patchworking! I'm longing to do some quilting again but haven't found the time recently...ReplyDelete
I love watching the birds outside, but we have two cats, so they rarely land in our garden these days, and I don't want to encourage them for fear of just providing a fast food joint for the cats... ;)
I've nominated you for a Liebster award - no pressure of course, but if you feel like participating then you can find the questions on my blog.
Such a lovely pot holder! I hope that you can get to photograph the birds sometime, they are very elusive aren't they!! xxReplyDelete
It is easy to work on something that is turning out as pretty as your patchwork throw. Oh, I do love making lists. I go through my lists most every morning.ReplyDelete
The quilt is looking wonderful. Such beautiful colours.ReplyDelete
Where would we be without lists? The joy of ticking off, when something has been completed.
I'm also trying to photograph birds and coming away frustrated!ReplyDelete
But your quilt is coming along beautifully!
I need to stick to my list! Too easily distracted!
Love the potholder! And your quilt is coming along nicely. I am a list maker from way back. Keeps me organized, and such a great feeling to cross an item off!ReplyDelete
When I first started putting up bird feeders I got a bird book. I was amazed at all the variety that came to the feeders. And I haven't had much luck taking pictures either.
Love the quilt and the pot holder. You have been so busy.ReplyDelete
Τhey are nice!!!! Have a nice week!!!ReplyDelete
I can't get by without lists! Funnily enough I have been sitting in my office this afternoon watching the birds and wondering if I could get any decent photos of them from in here. I might try on the next bright day - but I suspect they will fly away as soon as I lift the camera. Have fun crafting. xReplyDelete
Your back fields sound wonderful, I'm so envious of you, with Nature so near.
Your throw is growing nicely, love, love your pot holder.
Hoping the birds stay long enough for a few photos.
I make a lot of lists too. I don't think I could live without them. Your quilt is really coming along and the potholders are very cute.ReplyDelete
I have a similar book for spotting the birds-I think it is the RSPB one hour garden bird survey this weekend if you fancy putting the book to the test.ReplyDelete
Your patchwork is looking fabulous x
A great idea I have actually sent off for the RSPB free pack.Delete
Your quilt/blanket is really coming along! I'm a slow crafter so no birthday/easter presents for me but I am giving a lot of thought to my sisters Christmas present later on this year. I like a list, in fact I have lots of them xReplyDelete
I absolutely adore robins they are my favourite bird followed by blue tits, they do not stay still for long your right.your quilt is so pretty and i love how you made the pot holders they look easier take than those with bias binding, which is fidely for me xReplyDelete
I struggle with bias binding too.Delete
I would love to know the comparisons to our bird and wildllife from each perspective's side of the pond..............I know your robins are so much cuter, for starters!ReplyDelete
Do you have red Cardinals? That's our state bird and they're so beautiful.
Your quilt is going to be amazing, Lorraine! Hugs!
We do not have red cardinals, apparently they are a North American bird. I have seen them in Florida and thought they were beautiful.Delete
I haven't even thought of Easter yet....lovely quilt and the bird bath is so pretty with the frost and snow!ReplyDelete
You're impressive ! Thinking of Easter !! I love your patchwork ... and it's nice to hear that you got some space for birds too !!! Have a lovely day and thanks a lot for your supporting !ReplyDelete
Observing the birds in our backyard is one of the joys of winter. Now that you've got the book to help you identify who's showing up in your garden, you could start making a list of all the species you see. I used to do this, and need to start again. Your quilt is making great progress - I love the bright colours!ReplyDelete
I love the quilt! Inspiring! It's making me itchy to get my new sewing machine up and running.ReplyDelete
