Weathering (or should that be feathering?) the Storm plus Stash Report


My stash report is short & sweet.  None new in, none new out.  I have continued to work on blocks for my One Block Wonder quilt.  That’s about all I’ve done quilty.  I haven’t even touched the longarm since I took my last customer quilt off.  Well, I have touched it, just haven’t turned it on…lol.  I have that king size quilt of my own all ready to go and just can’t get motivated.

Our blizzard brought much needed moisture to our area, and for that I am very grateful.  It did ruin the blooms on my magnolia bush, though. 😦   I’m not sure how the tulips will fare, but I suspect better than the magnolia.  So much of it is already melting away.

I thought I’d share a few pics I took of the birds that were seeking shelter on my patio, and congregating in my tree for food, during the blizzard.  There were finches, doves, red wing blackbirds, blue jays, sparrows, grackles, starlings, and something I didn’t recognize.

During a time when they had flown back out and away from the patio, I slipped some seed out there in an old cat food bowl that was still out there on a bottom shelf.  When they came back, they had a nice surprise.

These are eating seed that they had knocked out of the feeder.

I tried to keep seed out for the, and the trees in my yard were full of birds most of the day.

And you thought from the title that this was going to be about quilting, didn’t ya? 🙂

Snow is good for something else, besides moisture.  Snow ice cream!

It was fun while it lasted, but now bring back Spring! Have a great week everybody!

  1. I loved the birds!!! We took down the deck last spring, so my feeders have not been where I can see them, and I really miss the birds!! Thank-You!! Good report!! Oh, and the sewing part was fine too!! 😉

  2. thanks for feeding the birds – I scatter more seed out during storms – I like watching the characters and I know that others forget to restock.

    Great pictures… looked cold though…

  3. Lovely pics of the sweet little birdies – look at the snow in their feathers! My cat would love your yard. She’s not allowed outside but she’d be glued to the window, lol!

    Never tried snow ice cream, maybe next year!

  4. Fabulous pictures! Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful birds. I love them all fluffed up. Our quail look like softballs when they fluff.

  5. When I was a little girl and we still had an ice box rather than a fridge and the iceman came to deliver ice, oh how secure I am sure he felt his job was!
    When it hailed we put the hail in a tin bucket with salt and then made the icecream in another inner bucket.
    Oh dear I feel old.

  6. Love you bird pictures! Good stash report . . nothing in is great!

    Seeing the snow ice cream makes me want ice cream. You shouldn’t do that! 🙂

  7. Oh, I’m so jealous of all your birds. I drove through Texas once in an awful ice storm. We used to do maple syrup on snow as kids. I don’t think I’d do that in the city though! I like your blog.
