Bye Bye Spring...

Ah Spring! Why do you have to leave us so soon? Seems like we just met and now you are leaving!! We have enjoyed the beautiful flowers with their fragrant scents. The lovely splashes of color... But now here comes your sister Summer! Although she is always welcome...don't you think she is a bit early? She brings heat (89 today) and storms (forecast for the next few days)!
We wish you could stay longer...but we understand! You have done all that you were sent to do! We will miss you!

So until next are some of the flowers still in the yard! Plus a holdover from fall!! Check out the size!!

I hoping it will bloom! ...what color was it again?

Eagle Watching

Sweet Mama and I have been watching the Decorah Eagles in Decorah, Iowa! It is a nest with three babies being cared for by mama and daddy! We found out about it through LB who is a news anchor in Waterloo, Iowa. The station website had a link and we clicked and can't stop watching! The babies were born 4/3, 4/6 and 4/9. It is mesmerising to watch how the parents care for their young! The cameras (there are 2) are trained on the nest 24/7. The night view is infrared so it doesn't bother them. Here is the link so you can watch too!

Here are more pics!

The tallest in Junior, the one to the right is Rickie and the smallest is Baby! Sweet Mama named them...She said the parents names are Richard and Amy. Just so you know. ;)

This is Amy this morning! She is usually with the babies all night and Richard take the dayshift!

I wish I could make the pictures bigger and not so blurry but I took them off Facebook. Notice below her is a little stream. They eat alot of fish. This morning for breakfast we had fish and squirrel...

The Facebook page is here

I tell you, you can't stop watching! They will leave the nest in about 2 months or so...80 days from 1st hatching. I hope I can get some work done in between now and then. I don't know...the are just so cute!!

Fixin' Mistakes...

See anything wrong with this pic? What's that.....besides the button is pinned on...the ribbons are UPSIDE DOWN??!!!! Yep! That's right...I cut out 3 aprons upside down...and finished one before I knew it was wrong! See... cute huh...but...WRONG!

I thought that the fabric was an all-over design...Not a 3-way design. Who ever heard of a 3-way design? This was a special order. And of course the fabric could not be found...not in the stores or online! And it had to be in the client's hand by the 14th. (Thursday). So after having a fit and falling in it, I put on my thinking cap and went to work. Here is what I came up with.

I like it! It is a little shorter than the regular BBQ aprons, but I think that makes it look a bit younger! I may have to make this style again...What do you think? Just wish I could get the fabric again!

I did get all three made and mailed out today ~ Priority Mail. :)
