Good Sunday morning to you. It feels like Summer here! Of course, I enjoy the being outside part of this weather, but truly, I wish we had some real winter! This is crazy! The trees are all blooming too early, and the grass is already growing as if it were Spring. And my feathered friends are beginning to look for places to nest and raise their young already. I always keep my feeders full, and I have noticed an odd fellow visiting my hummingbird feeder lately. So yesterday, I opened the screen and window, and perched at my kitchen sink to wait for him, to get some photos.
He didn't seem to have any problem extracting nectar from the feeder though. He is a bit of a bully, shooing all of the other birds away, so he can have the lion's share.
As the sun began to set, I watched as more and more hummers crowded around the feeder.
While I was taking photos of birds, the sun continued to set, and Noah called me over to check out his mad hand ball skills.
I made another cowl. I got the pattern from my friend Priscilla's blog. She posted the link, and I also posted the link on a previous post, if you want to find it, scroll down a bit. The first one I did, seemed different than Priscilla's. After chatting with her, we realized that I was simply crocheting much looser. I did my next one with more tension. It is the same pattern, same hook size, and same weight yarn, but you can see the size difference. I like them both, and they fit nice and softly against your neck.
Here are the two, side by side, so you can see the size difference.
On Super Bowl Sunday, Joann's was having a deal with their flannel 50% off, and 48 Cents for shipping. They didn't have the same selection that they do in their stores, but I found a few to order. My order FINALLY arrived on Saturday.
See you soon.
