All is well

Yesterday I was feeling the effects of a full day of gardening on Sunday but today I have recovered  .
I have been sitting in my conservatory watching four male Blackbirds sorting out their territory ,chasing around , to me they are a joy to watch . I love their antics , no females around ,they must be sitting on the nest .
I also think it's lovely when you find plants in the garden growing from seed the birds must have dropped .
The Sparrows always seem too busy at the bird table and swinging on the feeders just flitting back and forth .
I'm going to have a lazy day after I have done a little ironing , when I say lazy I mean indulging in sewing . I have my June postcard to sew . The theme for the month is embroidery .
I'm doing a big bed quilt with intensive quilting on that I sit at in between other things . I'm wanting to make a Kim Mclean quilt featured in a Kaffe Fassett book called Quilt Romance . Lot's of people show their Kim quilts , the patterns are expensive . I have left enquires on blogs asking do the patterns come through the post or are they PDF . Sadly I never get an answer to my question .

I love to watch our blackbirds here too. They do enjoy a bath and our birdbath is big enough for two at a time!
Have a peaceful day sewing.

I have looked at kits for some of these quilts and all say that the paper pattern is not included in the price.

Birds in my garden love to get a shower in the pond's waterfall. My Mum has had quie a few hummingbirds at her feeders, they are such fun to watch, and so beautiful too. In past years she has had baby "hummers", which are the size of bumble bees.
Enjoy you lazy day.

Your garden is already looking lovely. Your crabapple tree is glorious! We have some nice coral Impatiens in containers in front of our garage this year. The Portulaca and petunias are doing well, as are the herbs. I planted basil seeds and they are up and thriving. Hubby is in charge of the tomatoes, peppers and zucchini this year.

I look forward to seeing your latest postcard creation.

Warm Regards, Barb
