Sunday was a nice day, the humidity still wasn’t bad like it will be this week. Melanie came over for brunch and I made Oatmeal Cinnamon Walnut Waffles. Yum they were good, glad I made a double batch, Mike goes into work late some days this week and I will make them again in a day or two. I guess I need to get the recipe up if anyone wants it and take a photo when I make them later this week – yummy!!
First I decided seeing as these are tiny blocks and fairly easy – really! for the Temecula Quilt Company challenge that I would make three of each one for the 12 weeks and have something big enough for a topper for the table. I think they are kind of cute and for the inside tiny squares I raided the 1.5 inch box, I’m actually getting more in that box already after it had been emptied from the Postage Stamp quilt and trimmed the squares down to 1.25 the whites are from my scrap box of whites of various small sizes and the outside edges come from my 5 inch charm box of scraps – I have a few fossil fern leftover blocks in there from when I did the circle quilt last year. I thought this was a link of but it isn’t – maybe at the end of the 12 weeks we share our work? Not sure how it works! But this we we make a miniature Jacobs Ladder.
One basket done.
This was a new to me bird in my area, I had not seen it before – at first I thought it was cardinal of course, but then saw no crest – luckily I was able to get some photos of it before Melanie came over and she is the expert and said it was a Summer Tanager – Male – I just had never seen one but they are in this area. So glad it stuck around for a little while so I could get photos.
We also have a pair of Red Shoulder Hawks that we have seen flying around and making a heck of a lot of noise at times – but no photos right now – hope to see one sitting long enough to get a photo – they have a wing span of 35-50 inches. This photo is from the bird site on line
