To put..this and that~
But not this and that..
I finished my stitching project.. and left the house blank as she did..I started stitching it in pale yellow like our home..but thought..less is best in this case..It would be nice to make one's own little stitchery kit too with one's own handwriting etc..more personal..
But this one was fun...already all done up for me..It can be found here at Stitching Cow..
I had bought a fabric covered sketch/art book at Michael's ..but the paper is really not great for watercolors..and.. I couldn't bring myself to paint the cover....I will have to look at it a long time..
So I started filling in the pages with Paris Breakfasts tutorials..and my own little watercolors..on watercolor paper..then glued on the pages..
It's a hefty book:)
Anyways I finished the stitching and added it to the cover of this latest art book..in a very basic way~
But at least twice..(it's on a small table in our sunroom) . ..
my husband has said.."this is so you"..
And although I would like to act surprised..he knows me well...as he is right.
So now I know that's where the stitchery belongs.
With downloadable patterns you can do them over and over again.
The birds are plentiful ..We have bird songs all day when it is just Jacques and I..they are shy..er when others are around..
I took a little video..
However.. warning..you may yawn:-) No..you will:) Or fall asleep..
I just love them..Real gourmands at the feeder:-)Niger seeds are their menu of choice..Hang them..and they will come..our feeders need to be on long wires so the squirrels don't steal their banquet~
Tried the above cookies.. Deep Dish Smores.. for our little family across the street..since I have the muffin top molds..
Little ones liked..They are pretty I would have liked them even deeper..Recipe is here~
Made a few Cornish hens..2 recipes.. both very good.1 has a lemon stuffing.. w/ maple syrup..and baked to juicy perfection the oven...from Isa's book~the other is broiled.. split in 2..and delicious also.. where I took the lovely cooking class..Maria Loggia ,and ..whose 2 books I am happy to have here~
We really enjoy them and 1 is enough for the two of us..(1 cornish hen:) )
In the garden.. a little video of one of my bird restos.in our garden...My birds are singing in French:)
They also go next door and sing in English:) .. from Britain:) bilingual finches~
What sweet voices~ And good appetites~
If every moment could carry this calm.
I am enthralled with these tiny birds..The big ones are gorgeous..Cardinals, Blue Jays ,Orioles ,etc..
but these are sooo many ..and darling.
"Pan,who and what art though?"he cried huskily.
"I'm youth,I'm joy" Peter answered at a venture "I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg"~
