Crop For Lindor

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend the Crop For Lindor and this is the one I completed. I did finish another one for the church album but I am not allowed to display it on the Internet do to the privacy issue. I had a good time and Diane you did a great job. ( Lindor is a dog for autistic children)

Out Smarted by a Bird

Every year I like to have hanging baskets of firns on my front porch, and every year I try to out smart the birds as they like to make nests in my planters. Every other year they put them smack dab in the middle of my planter but this year they out smarted me. They hid them under neath the folage at the side of the plant. I only saw it when I went out to water the plant and the mommy bird flew out of the planter.

The first time I looked and saw the nest there were 5 eggs. The nest morning one of the eggs had fallen out and smashed.

This is Momma Bird watching me taking pictures and having a bird(LOL).

As I was coming back into the house John noticed the refection off the glass in my front door, so I took a picture facing the door but it looks like I was taking it facing the street. How cool is that.

Rag Quilts

It's been awhile since I have posted on my blog. I have found a new hobby which is more time consuming then card making and scrapbooking. It is making rag quilts. The one showing below is my first attempt and I am quite pleased how it turned out.

This is a close up of it.

I then had to make one for my daughter to take to her trailer for those cool nights.

This is the back of her quilt. The first quilt has the same colours on the back as on the front.

Thanks for looking.
