humans aren't the only ones...

 While pruning back my jasmine, I found the sweetest little bird's nest.  Do you spot the selvage?  Humans aren't the only ones who cozy our nests with pretty bits of fabric.  I think this one is Jennifer Paginelli Sis Boom fabric just in case you're wondering...

I have been a little absent here.  There are a few things going on.  One is spring fever (hence the pruning!).  I've been sewing some but unfortunately I can't show the fruits of my labor just know those secret projects people annoyingly talk about.   I will tell you that after my post yearning to make harder quilts I was promptly commissioned with a quilt with 1300 triangles. and my big fat mouth.  It was fun, though, and only a few hairs turned gray in the process.  Pics to come after Quilt Market *wink*.

The not so secret project is still this guy...
He is not as much work as I feared a puppy would be.  That's not to say he isn't a handful. He is 100% Scottish Terrier.  Short Dog Syndrome.  He is keeping us on our toes!   He already knows Sit, Down, Play Dead, Shake, Drop It, Come, & High Five.   He really thinks he is hot stuff.  I have no idea where he got that impression, do you??


  1. I put some fabric scraps out, after I trued-up a set of blocks. I'm not sure any birds have indulged, I hope they do. Your little guy is so cute. We have a Cairn terrier we rescued 10 years ago. He's great.

  2. I wouldn't worry about the dog, Scottish men have the same problem...

    As for the nest, fab idea! I wonder if I should save my scraps for my gran's garden.

  3. Still laughin at Katy's true... lol Love the birds nest selvedge :-)

  4. I can't wait to see your super-secret project! I have one of those, too.

  5. Lol. Hang in there. Sometimes life just happens and it is all we can do to keep up.

  6. What smart animals you have around you... dogs and their tricks and a bird with good fabric taste!

    Can't wait to see what you are working on!

    Jennifer :)

    PS LOL about the annoying secret project mention ;)

  7. What a cute puppy! Love him!

    Maybe I should throw some of my scraps out for the birds?

  8. I just love your posts! I bet those birds have been watching you and plotting their next decorating episode,,, I wonder what is over by the lemon tree? You will have to wait until after harvest!!!!

  9. I told my husband I was gonna leave some threads and scraps for the birds and he looked at me like I was crazy. LOL Your little pooch is sew cute.
