Anybody want to see a funky chicken? I'm participating in a block of the month sew along using Sindy Rodenmeyer patterns.
He's not finished yet. I still have to put the borders on the block. I've decided that I will use all stash and scraps to make these blocks. I did have to buy the background because I couldn't find anything I was satisfied with in the stash.
Went on a birding trip to Baldwin County, Alabama on Saturday. Way too many people along which impeded the purpose of the trip -- to see birds! At any rate, the highlight of the day was seeing a Black Chinned Hummingbird that is wintering in Foley, Alabama. This a western hummer that normally winters in western Mexico. Others also saw a female rufous hummingbird, but although I saw it flying, I didn't get enough of a look at it to say that I saw it. You can see a picture of the black chinned HERE.
On a message board I frequent, there has been a discussion about regrowing celery and other vegetables from the tops or bottoms. In my case, I cut off the bottom portion of a celery stalk and put it in water for a few days. It started growing within about three days. After a few more days, I potted it up and it is sitting outside on the patio. Growing like crazy!!! Its going to be very interesting to see how this develops. I had already used most of the stalk before I did this, so I wonder what the difference would be had I cut the bottom off the whole stalk?
Off to a sit 'n sew with friends this afternoon.
Y'all take care.
