Blue Jays in the Feeder
I have been trying for more than a week to get a photo of the blue jays that have been taking advantage of our feeder. Every time I got close enough to get a good shot, they would take off. Today, I was a bit more successful. We are getting up to 5 at a time and, as you can see, they appear to be nice and healthy.
I overheard someone saying that jays are not as common the last few years but we have a lot in this area. Perhaps they are getting more restrictive in the feeders they visit.
I have been having a hard time getting motivated to do anything much the last couple of days. I have almost finished the applique touches I am adding to a quilt and have another one with the binding ready to be finished. But, these are all projects that are done by hand. I didn't want to start anything new until these are all finished so I think I will check out the drawer that has my unfinished quilts. I believe I have done all but one and it just needs binding but perhaps there is a top lurking somewhere.
Tomorrow I am going to Huntsville as our local quilt store is having an anniversary sale. I am getting short on red fabric so this will be a good time to get a meter or five.
