On this rainy Monday, it seems like a good day to get out the mail bag! So, lets see what we have in there!
Can you please explain to me the thought process behind how you stock shelves after your stores have opened?
Do you really think that customers appreciate not being able to navigate the main aisles due to the cluster-fuck of employees with hand carts blocking the way?
Oh, and their utter rudeness at being inconvenienced by your customers is really awesome… NOT.
Your Used to be Customer
It all started with Mrs. Robin and her nest in the hedge.
Then, Mrs. Sparrow decided to move into the Cardinal House – building her nest in what seemed like a few hours one day last week.
And, the Stone House my kids built for me ages ago has an occupant for the second year in a row! New babies will soon be filling my yard and I could not be happier!
One Extremely Happy Bird Nana
It has now been four months of daily stitching. Four months that have been the most wonderful thing ever!
Last month, however, was really especially wonderful. You see, all the fabrics were sent from a dear blog friend and her inspiration combined with that of another dear blog friend helped to create May’s “Quilt of Stitches” which you see above.
I am so proud of where your unplanned creativity has taken you. You stepped out of the box and embraced the uncertainty of not having a pattern. You trusted that each day by doing a little, you would end with something wonderful.
Your Inner Creative Voice
So, this May Day, the month is a blank canvas before us – what will you do with your month?
Congratulations on the impending births of your baby grandbirds! Your yard is quite the aviary. And your stitching is stunning! Each month is beautiful in its own way, and it’s clear you are listening well to your inner creative voice.
I used to do a ton of counted cross-stitch, so I continue to find your daily stitching very inspiring (though I haven’t yet found any extra time to get out my stitching). All the clusters of French knots remind me of the pointillist paintings that are so much fun to look at far away and then close up.
Yay for birds!!!! They bring such joy. XO And . . . your stitching!!! Oh, Kat. It’s just beautiful. And it is so inspiring . . . to watch it unfold. Thank you for sharing your journey.
♥ grand baby birds!! also fabric scraps incorporated into your daily stitching – it’s beautiful! I think adding bits a day at a time is magical.
I’ve never had that problem with a Target store, thankfully. And hooray for birds, they make me happy, too.
Lovely. I am loving the COLOR in your stitching!
I love watching your stitching, too and I’m thinking I might try a stitching project (besides my AC t-shirt) soon! Yay for being such a great bird granny!
Your stitching journey is such a treat to watch! And the baby birds…always a good thing! Ahead for me…sorting two big totes of pictures and creating a desk space for me. Goals for May! we’ll see!
How lovely to have been a part of your April stitching!
I love your stitching! Is that Valdani thread I see there? It sure looks like it. Such gorgeous stuff. Anyway, your quilt is so homey and pleasing. I can see why your inner artist is happy!
our grocery store stocks during the day as well and makes shopping impossible! Love your stitching and your letters 🙂
