Clean windows help

Yup, clean windows do make for much nicer photos.

You can even see a dab of grape jelly on the end of his beak below.

Here's his mate, patiently waiting for her turn. Note the striking difference in coloring. But still so bright and pretty!

The finches haven't been so thick this year. The most I've ever seen on the feeder at one time is three. Other years I've seen so many that they fight over it. Maybe more are coming yet?

Some of you may be wondering what's happened to the sewing. I actually haven't touched my sewing machine, except to clean and oil it (pats herself on the back for doing that), for about 3 weeks! I haven't had anything to sew! Or at least anything that I thought was worth making right now, though I have lots of tutorials. BUT, that is about to change. I have a pattern to test very soon (from one very busy lady who keeps getting delayed by other things), a fun project for Jess, plus my local librarian/friend, who knows I like to sew, called me to say they'd just gotten in a new pattern book and I could have it first if I wanted. Yay, I'll pick it up today... lots of potential in it, I'm sure! So hopefully I'll have sewing projects for you to see again very soon.

I'd better hurry up and get my garden and flowers planted ASAP!

On an interesting other note... as I was uploading the above photos, I noticed that I've now taken over 10,000 photos on this camera! WOW!

Just planted the seeds in our vegetable garden this afternoon. I'm always antsy pantsy excited after seeds until the seedlings pop through the soil. We're hoping for a good growing season around here!
