Tuesday’s Ramblings ~ Quilts, Birds, Quilting, and Kitties

I switched my furlough day from today to last Friday…found out that the Nevada Museum of Art was not open on Monday & Tuesdays. So on Friday I went to see the Gee’s Bend Quilts with my mom. I wish we were allowed to take pictures…they were lovely. The best thing I liked about them…they were not perfect. They were useable works of art…no perfect points and no tiny stitches. I absolutely loved them.

Oh yeah…Raphael’s The Lady in the Veil was very pretty too! LOL!

Great Backyard Bird Count:

In my backyard I had the following birds:

Red-Breasted Sapsucker
California Quails
Mourning Doves
Ring-necked Turtle Doves (2)
Downy Woodpecker
Scrub Jays
American Robin
European Starlings
White-Crowned Sparrow
Black-Throated Sparrow
Rufus-Crowned Sparrow (?)
Rufus-side Towhee
Oregon Darkeyed Juncos
House Finches
House Sparrows
Northern Mockingbird
Lark Sparrow
Chipping Sparrow
Vesper Sparrow

And while taking a drive to Pyramid Lake we saw:

Prairie Falcons
White Pelicans
Horned Larks
and a bunch of Sparrows…they were flying too fast for me to see what types.

I finished the Hushabye Whirlygig/pinwheel quilt…and I just love how it turned out. Will make a great baby girl quilt…I’m thinking of putting it up for sale on etsy.

Just a few pictures of Lucy for “awwww…what a sweet kitty” effect. 🙂
