I hope you are having a wonderful day. The sun is shining here, a perfect day in the making.
On the weekend I was deadheading "The Duchesse" and I was surprised to find a nest which had only just been made recently. I know this because a rose was blooming through the nest. Well yesterday I went to check the nest and a little bird flew out and look what is inside it.
Two little eggs. I wonder how long before they hatch. We also have a pair of Willy Wagtails building a nest on the patio out the back. Spring is certainly in the air.
Now if a bird can make such a perfect nest why is it that I have trouble with patchwork sometimes. I received a pattern for a tablecloth and table runner and some fabric from
Vickie last year. I had trouble matching some of the sections together. When I first sewed the bias triangles two corners did not meet up at all. So I unpicked and unpicked and tried again. This time I must have sewn things a bit tight or something, as things were not lying flat. I even left the table runner under a pile of magazines and books to see if that would help. Of course as soon as the books were removed up popped the triangle sections again. The only thing to do was unpick again.
The triangle sections were left out in the end, though I did end up using most of the fabric Vickie gave me so that is a bonus. I actually like the blocks and think they would make a great quilt pattern. You can't see much of the design in the photo but you can see the "You Go Girl" Table runner and Tablecloth here.
Of course all this unpicking has made me tired so I had better go and have a cuppa.
