Well the daffodils are not blooming but look what I saw today when I was wandering the yard! The earliest variety of daffodils that are sometimes peaking a yellow blossom out of snow are popping up out of the ground!! Spring is coming – well in another month or so maybe – we always have some early buds though so I won’t be surprised to see flowers by the middle of February.
That got me looking for more signs of spring and sure enough some of the trees are starting the earliest signs of growth – well be awhile – we don’t want them to try and get leaves too early
I worked on Bird Brain yesterday and plan to again today.
Managed to finish two birds to add to the wall The two birds on the right side are the newest additions. I hadn’t realized I was getting quite so many sun flares hitting the wall or I would have shut the blind – that time of the year for this side of the house in the late afternoon. I haven’t quite decided how I will be doing a layout for these, it might be nice to stagger the rows so that are not even and have the feet resting on brown sashing mimicking tree branches – not sure just a thought for now. Haven’t touched those mini hexes in quilt awhile and doubt this piece will grow much larger than it is now. These are half inch hexies I think it will be a table runner probably will stay this width and just make it longer. The mini hexie piece is called “Granny’s Gone Crazy”
The fabric and patterns for Bird Brain get stored in the “treasure chest” box.
