While taking a lunch break in the family room last week a flash of red flew by the window. I looked out to see a red cardinal sitting in one our trees. Then I noticed the female sitting down on the fence.
Today as I walked past the dining room I commented 'come look at the big bird in our tree'. I caught a few photos through the window. Is he/she a young hawk?
In between bird sitings I found only a couple hours for the sewing room. One quick project was to be a trading card but I used a new little template ruler for the first time. I measured out and cut what I thought was 4 by 6 but when I was finished my card appeared quite large. Yes, it is indeed large. It is 4.5 by 6.5 inches as my ruler has a built out 1/4" which I had not noticed. How could I not notice?! There is a bright blue 1/4" all around the ruler. I am so used to my favorite ruler that measures from zero at the edge. Lesson learned: 'pay attention' when measuring and cutting!
