Take a break from sewing and play in the sprinklers!

I was setting some sprinklers yesterday & had a "helper"!!! This HAS to be the same goofy robin that is so in love with all of our car's windows and mirrors!
I swear... I'd just turned the hose on and walked around the corner of the house & he was already in the middle of bath time & happy as a clam!!!

I think with a couple of these shots, if you didn't know he was a bird, you'd be hard pressed to figure out WHAT it was! LOL!!! He was thoroughly enjoying himself so I just waited until he was finished before I hooked the sprinkler to the hose....well.... there it is! Proof positive that spring is here!
Thought I'd share a couple more pictures of the new house. This is some of my green stuff in the kitchen. They all thought I was out of my mind, just wanting shelves instead of cupboards!!...I think I was right!!! I love the way they look... clean, old fashioned, open and airy!

And this is a pic of the kitchen......I put the dirty dishes down in the bottom of the sink so they wouldn't show! HA!!!!

I've sewed all week on the blocks for "Snow Day".... all the girls & I have been stitching away on the blocks too and tomorrow Cyndy and Jan are driving down from Leavenworth to drop off the ones that they, Judy and Gracie have been working on. I'll take a picture after they're all together & try to remember to post it tomorrow. I LOVE this fabric and I LOVE the way the piecing is turning out!! Can't wait to see all the blocks together!

Love the robing photos! So cute! You should perhaps submit them to I'm sure other animal lovers would love them!

Just shared your crazy bird photos with my 5 year old daughter (who is an embroiderer as well!!!) and she just cracked up! Thanks for the Friday morning giggle!

I got my QH magazine and saw a nice article about you! So nice to see you. Your home is lovely. I really like the open cupboards.

Birds are so fun to watch. I was watching a chickadee take a bath in the bird bath the other day.
Your kitchen is just lovely and so is your depression glass.

What a clever robin - I suppose there still aren't many places where they can take a bath this time of year! Your kitchen is incredible, Meg! I love the green things and the perfect way to display them!! Can you share where the bar stool came from? We've searched all over for something like them!

Lovdely kitchen. What a surprise to see your smiling face in QH. When will the Postcard embroidery pattern be available?

Love the robin in the hose pictures. How funny! Guess it's time for his spring bath.
I love your kitchen. How fresh, vintage and country feeling it is. Just love the open shelves. I would do that where I live but the dust would just be awful. It's horribly dusty where I live.
Thanks for the sharing the great photos. Glad you're enjoying your new house.
