Now for the birds. I found this family of bluebirds in our backyard. It started as one or two brave little souls coming over to see what that was I threw out for them (breadcrumbs) and before I was done I had counted five. I'm sure there are more. I'll keep waiting to snap their pics. I love birds.

Knitting, Quilting and Birds. Oh My!
I am trying to teach myself knitting in the hopes of someday making my own socks, among other things. So I bought a book, some needles, and yarn and started with a wash cloth. And look. . . stripes!!
I'm so impressed with myself. Now you knitters extraordinaire out there won't think a think about this I'm sure but I'm just so thrilled that I actually did it. I'm now lost in a knitting dream of striped socks and beautiful sweaters, caps, etc. Reality is beginning to set in though. I started a hat for my daughter. Hmmmm will it ever fit her head? That remains to be seen. But I did finish the dishcloth.
Meantime I have finished another t-shirt quilt. This is for a coworker. She is giving it to her son and his fiance who met at Auburn and are to be married in another couple of months.
