It's been so foggy and snowy and cold here . . . and I understand the Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so six more weeks of winter! I really don't mind winter, that's why I live where I do, because I love the change of seasons - but I do miss the birds. We have big trees all around us, big tall Pine trees in my front yard and Poplar trees line my backyard. In the summer, I am treated to a beautiful concert every morning, I love it! But, now, there are very few birds. I have seen more and more, trickling in, but not song birds . . . I am anxious for Spring. I can hardly wait to hear the first Red Winged Black Bird's little shrill call, or hear the Meadow Lark in the pasture, I even miss the Magpie's little scolding when I chase him off. I guess Spring will come soon enough and then I will be wanting Summer . . .
At Spoolsewing.com, she has the cutest pattern for fabric birds and a free download for the pattern. I made one and it's adorable, I plan on making a whole tree full! Too bad they don't sing . . .
Have a wonderful Tuesday - I have my husband and my son home with some horrible bug, I hope they get better soon . . . and I hope I don't get it!
