Birds, Weekends, and Sausages.
One of the real pluses of life in Wisconsin is that it's such a great bird place. This week we've been visited by a family of Indigo Buntings--dad, mom, and young ones. There must be a nest nearby. Hoping they are here to stay--much of the interior of my house is blue and it's nice to extend the decor outside too.
Once again I'm going to make the pitch for commenters to enable email addresses. So many interesting comments, and I'd like to be able to respond to all of them. Decaf,please: I can't email you but I owe you thanks, big time. Wow! Thanks for posting the link for Quilt This!, online retailer selling the gorgeous toile in this quilt shown in my last post.
Quilt This! stocks the fabric in not one but three colorways, and it's been on sale. I scored six yards of it, ordered and received, all since my last post.
This kind of great service deserves a shout out and I'm happy to give it. I'll order from them again for sure. And yes, I'm seeing a strippy quilt in my near future.

We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Daughter Caro flew in for the weekend and got comfy for a few days with the livestock.
We managed to pack a good deal of activity into her limited time with us--a shopping trip, a cookout with friends, a baseball game,
lots of family time, lots of talking time, AND a preliminary fitting for her wedding dress. It was great to have her here. Now she's gone and it's time to get serious about that wedding dress project. I've procrastinated just about as long as I can.
Above? Milwaukee Brewers Sausage races. Don't ask--it's a Milwaukee thing...
