Can You Believe it's June?

Two months have gone by since my last blog post - life has taken over!  I'm working a new job within the same office, while still doing the old job until someone is hired.  Makes for an exhausted brain.  And now it's June (can you believe it?) - graduations, weddings and so much gardening work to fill my "spare" time.

I've been tackling my T.A.T. projects, though bit by bit and slowly as time (and well, desire) allows.  Currently I'm working on varying picots - so many ways to add dimension and intrigue to a tatted piece with a picot alone.  If I were a designer, I'd be up all night trying to figure out some clever pattern using interesting picots!  I'm a much better pattern-follower than designer ;)  I will be sharing some more of my thoughts on unique picots.

Minnesota has finally decided to have some Spring/Summer weather.  After all the wintry depression I posted about, it's time to share some of my beautiful views of late!

My birds are back, and so much fun to watch - bluebirds, pheasants, orioles and finches:

We have deck weather again!

And even when it's rainy, it's a beautiful shade of green out there. So, so much better than all that snow we had.


  1. Hi Cindy,
    Great to "hear" from you and see such pretty pics of your feathered friends. You certainly get colourful plumage in your neck of the woods.
    Fox : )

  2. Beautiful birds and gorgeous green growing things! I enjoyed seeing the pictures!!!

  3. Glad to hear from you again! Your pictures of the birds are wonderful. The view from your porch does look inviting, especially with that glass of wine. Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
