Happy Easter

Sometimes life gets in the way of things i've got planned.
Plans to spend time on quilting. Plans to read all the wonderful blogs and leave comments to all of you. I'm so sorry but i'm way behind...seems I just can't drag myself behind the computer. I had big plans to do some stitching, finishing of projects........etc, etc.

Happy Easter

We're going away for the Easter weekend to the seaside. Lots of fresh air and windy beachwalks so hopefully i can reload my battery.
Really looking forward to that!
Wishing you all a Happy Easter and see you next week!

A new nest
Sorry, the photo is a bit blurry but I couldn't get any closer.

building a nest

The happy couple finally made the decicion on which house they would move into. And as two real construction workers they fly in and out all day with pieces of straw and moss to build their nest.
And do you want to know what I do all day?
...Well I sit in the sun and watch those two busy birds from an appropriate distance. All that activity is a joy to see!
Untill next time!
