If I would give him a nest he would become a pincushion.
And he did! :o) It was another one of those light bulb moments while strolling through Hobby Lobby. I ran across these nests and the rest is history. I was at HL again today and found the card boxes featured in BBD A Stitcher's Journey. Two of those came home with me along with paint. I am really happy that Barb and Alma shop at Hobby Lobby - these boxes were only $1.99 and with a 40% off coupon I paid $1.29 each, the paint a mere .69 cents! Now to make them into something someone will treasure.
It was a glorious spring day here - 72 degrees with bright sunshine. DH and I planted turnips, mustard, cilantro, and lettuce. We also picked up the bazillion sticks in our yard and serviced the lawnmower. Rain is expected tomorrow so I expect lots of sewing to be done here.
