KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Diary Quilt Tuesday
It's no secret that the weather has felt like late spring around here. We filled up the bird bath and were rewarded with blue birds, cardinals, chickadees and finches frolicking in the water. There are days where there are 5 or 6 birds hanging out and it is fun to watch them.
I decided to use thread sketching to add the details to the bath. Yesterday I really didn't like it but this morning I did! I also used birds cut from fabric rather than make something very small. I like the scale and that is something I am not very good at. I don't think we have any green birds around here......
The green things along the bottom are the weeds growing in my garden. I am a fair weather gardener, no cold weather for me, today the high is going to be 55. They can wait!
My granddaughter Maddy has been asking to do a tie dye shirt. We did not have any plain white ones around so we used one she got from Boston. She decided on purple and had great fun un-doing all the rubber bands. I think we may be making some more.
