New Pages Added

The progress continues! I’ve added two new pages to suggest project ideas. One is “Quilted Instrument Cases & Wall Hangers;” the other is “Pillows and Wall Art.” I’m hoping the gallery of images will give folks ideas for things I can make for them. When I line up everything I’ve made in the past few […]

Billy Bob “How to” video is now on my website

I was successful in adding the 3 minute video on how I thread paint. It has it’s own page. I keep seeing the underwriting in the video that doesn’t show on the one I made in iMove, so that’s a puzzle I’ll look into later. Now to finish my product list and hopefully figure out […]

Rainbow Phoebe

I had one more instrument case to decorate, my autoharp. Since these bright little Say’s Phoebes have been such an inspiration for the past two months I thought I’d use an image of them. I found a great photo on line but didn’t think a brown bird on a black surface would be very eye […]

Cooper Hawk Scare

My baby Say’s Phoebe’s were so frightened by a fly-over from the local Cooper’s Hawk this morning, that they all retreated to the nest this morning. Only three roosted on our porch last night. Only three have been seen getting food. I’m hoping one has simply become independent since I haven’t found feathers anywhere nearby. […]
