I spent yesterday afternoon watching the news, just when the tornado hit Springfield.
I feel for the people of Springfield and the neighboring towns that got hit, it is such a beautiful area, rich with history.
I took a shot of the clouds and didn't realize that I had gotten more than clouds in this shot, till I saw it enlarged.
These birds were in a hurry and having a hard time flying in the wind gusts.
I cleaned out my chest and washed all the old scrap fabrics, lots of fabric to play with, great for art quilts too.
I didn't realize I had so much pink shades that matched so nicely, I could make a couple of charity quilts with that.
This is yardage I bought years ago, some heavy, so not sure what I had in mind for it. It was on the dollar table, so I used to buy a few yards, just because it looked like something I could use, lol. I was planning on using the animal print for a table cloth, there is enough to make two.
This is an around the world quilt, I was making about twenty years ago. When we moved, my white kitty christened some boxes and one contained the rest of the quilt pieces. I couldn't get the smell out, so I had to throw them away. Now I have a half a top, so I was thinking, what if I took out some seams and reworked the design into a new design, that might work. Then I can practice my quilting on the solid blocks. Or maybe I could make two smaller ones for charity.
Since I don't have extra money to fix up my yard, I make do. I wanted a bird bath, so I made one with what I had. My kids call it the ghetto bath, but the birds don't care, they love it.
My first attempt was this bucket, but it is too deep. Since I added a few feeders and the bird bath, I am getting a lot of new friends in the yard. The kitties love it, since the can watch out the window.
