Birds' Nests

Happy Spring

For the BirdsFor the BirdsToday was the first full day of Spring.  The weather was the nicest we've had all year. Our temperature reached 61°F, the sun was shining and there was a nice breeze.

It's time, once again, to give the birds a helping hand.  They are coming back to the area and building nests.  I saved a large jar of thread and fabric scraps for the birds and bought a new feeder with quarter inch holes.  I fill the feeder with the scraps and hang it from a tree branch outside.  The birds will sometimes use these scraps to help build their nests and I like being able to recycle the scraps and keep them out of the landfill.

This Is For The Birds

Nowdays we often have the advantage of being able to buy fabric to make our quilts with.  We are still frugal though.  We save all of our extra, or leftover, pieces and use them to make scrap quilts.
