Mystery Solved, Tiny Stitching, Sawtooth Stars, Christmas Gift in May from Canadian Needle Nana

 Can you spy her?

She froze and I moved close enough to get this photo; I really didn't want to disturb her foraging.
That's a little snow on the ground on Monday early morning. I took this photo of the marsh frozen over.
The Canada Geese have moved in and several always settle in on the little pond for a short while. 
I got my Christmas gift from Hubby recently. This book, The Bedside Book of Birds by Graeme Gibson. that I wanted had been out of print and it took this long to get a reprint copy ...

69th Spring Still Holds Surprises from Canadian Needle Nana

 You'd think my 69th March would hold no surprises for me. But the suddenly melting snow, emerging sidewalks, sun feeling so hot on my back I had to unzip my coat and remove my woolen toque, all took me by surprise. This happened in just the last three days but so wonderful. Temperatures above zero and even into double digits one day like what spring is meant to be. Now if only the snow can stay away and a hex on freezing rain too. 

And the birds started chirping just like that. I've heard the male cardinals now ...

Quilting Mojo, Olive Kitteridge, SnowBound (The Fabric), Hexagon Hand Stitching from Canadian Needle Nana

I finally finished my last audio book, The Red Comet about Sylvia Plath  ...it was 45 hours and 37 minutes long! I really enjoyed it. It was especially nice to hear how well her daughter has gotten on in life. Now I'm listening to this one and enjoying it too.


One of my most read posts was one I wrote about the original, Olive Kitteridge, 

Olive Kitteridge is Wearing My Skirt. I have an identical skirt to the one Frances McDormand is wearing in the film version of the book.

                           

Truthfully my quilting mojo took a dive around Christmas ...

“Cartoonist’s Armcandy” for Mark from Nina Paley

This Hundred Dollar Drawing was commissioned after I posted B. Kliban’s classic over on fecebook:

Of course I and other cartoonists claimed that our lives are just like this, although I specified that my “arm candy” was different. Mark apparently wanted to know how, so now there’s this.

Visits- Abby, Animals, Chimney Sweep and Hexagon Quilt, Parachutes Quilt and Free Pattern from Canadian Needle Nana

The weather has been best described as indecisive lately...sun, cloud, cold and then warmth...this fluctuation ongoing all day long like Mother Nature can't make up her mind. All over the place and this week rain and cloudiness thrown in.  The season is trying to change that's for sure. 

So happy that Abby came along with SIL when he dropped by to do a few bigger outside chores (like straighten a chimney on the garage- Hubby is no longer allowed up on roofs). The two Labs get along well and Murphy tolerates the much younger Abby's ...

It Was a Mask and Garden Day from Quilts....etc.

Well not really that much of a garden day other than cutting some oregano first thing in the morning before it got to a very high 96 degrees again! and more tomatoes – I had to add more ties to the plants they are getting so tall and and were starting to bend over – […]

Free Online Word Games, Appliqued Hearts, Cheeky Squirrel, More June Blooms from Canadian Needle Nana

Mister sun has been blazing all week. 

 I've been outside stitching on the veranda every day. I've also been swimming and so glad for the exercise of it. All this time outside has made me think of how our winters really do make us hibernate to a certain extent. For the most part a happy hibernation luckily.
I'm noticing this uptick in outside activities is also making me feel better about this isolation.  Things are gradually opening but for folks in our age range, there are still warnings and precautions to be heeded. But just the thought ...
