Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

View From My Studio 5/2/13



This is my view today as I sew.  Really, it’s behind me as I sew, throwing natural light over my shoulder into the fabric.  I see this dogwood when I swivel around to press or check Twitter.  Can you see my nesting friend, Mrs. Dove?


Here she is.  She is like a Japanese taupe quilt, isn’t she?  She’s much less conspicuous than Robin, and she likes to sit with her head drawn back into her chest, behind the branch.  She’s been there for three days, continuously as far as I can tell.  She gets up and shifts around, but I haven’t seen her leave or eat.  Mr. Dove has not been around since he helped her helped her fix the place up.  Figures.  So we’ll keep each other company.  It’s a beautiful day here to nest or to sew.  I hope you’re having a good day, too.

Of course, all of us are sending positive thoughts to Libby Lehman for her complete recovery.

(Really, SpellCheck, you don’t know “taupe”??  Really?)

I’m linking up with Really Random Thursday at Live a Colorful Life.

  4. Oh how I love dogwoods! I tried to grow a set in my yard. The dog ate one and the other just wasn’t in a good shady dogwood spot. Lucky lucky you – it’s lovely!

  5. Your view is beautiful! We have a spring snow crab apple tree in our yard that should be blooming, but we keep getting snow and freezing temperatures. I’ll just have to enjoy spring virtually this year!
