And I don't mean on Facebook either. Here in NC we had such a beautiful day. The sun was out and the temperature was a little below average for this time of year, but just perfect for Farming. I tilled up my little patch of garden that is in my backyard. I ran out two tanks of gas in the tiller, getting the ground so soft and weed free. I now have onions, potatoes and 3 different kinds of salad lettuce planted. I found several sunflowers coming up from last year in the garden. I did enjoy being outside today. I did take time to work on a card for a special birthday that I am late on. Last Saturday was Carolyn's birthday and I let it slip by. I feel so bad about it. Carolyn was one of the first phone calls I made, when I found out about my son's death. Her and her husband were right there taking care of things that had to be done from the very beginning. So here is her belated birthday card. She understands and still loves me, even if I am late.
Pat's challenge this week was to use one of her favorite techniques, which is piecing. I used papers by Sassafras, the Sunshine lollipops collection. I cut out the little bird from on pattern paper and used a foam dot to pop it on what looks like a tree on another sheet from the same collection. I also cut an extra flower out and popped it over the other one. I cut out around the shape of the top of the paper then attached it to another pattern, still using the 3d dots. So we have about 3 layers going on. I finished it off with a chocolate colored satin ribbon. Happy Birthday, Carolyn.
P.S. The birdhouse was a gift from one of my son's neighbors. I walk by his house everyday while walking their dog Bondo. Isn't it such a wonderful RAK.
