Happy Sunday everyone. I am stopping by quickly before everyone gets up and moving in my house. These darker mornings are still throwing us all off schedule. Mr. 21 arrived home late yesterday afternoon and I was so happy. There is just nothing like seeing your child's face is there?
Even with his messy hat hair, and a week of stubble on his chin he looked like the most beautiful thing in the world to me. He will only be here a few days, but I am going to treasure each and every second of them. Well that is until he leaves the toilet seat up all the time, stops putting away his dishes and leaves his clothes everywhere.
Yesterday before he got home I made a little something for the birds. I know you have seen these around, but it is so, so simple. A suet feeder filled with yarn ends.
Grab all those ends of yarn you have been saving because they are just to pretty to throw out. This glass was so filled with yarn, it was like going on an archaeological dig and figuring out which layer correlated with which project I had completed.
Buy a cheap suet feeder at your local hardware store.
Fill with yarn bits and you are done. Really isn't this the fastest project ever? Hmmm... there is the red from the cowl I made a year ago, and the Malabrigo from the Christmas cowls, and the gold from my Lady Kina.
Hang in a tree for all the birds to use to help cushion their nests. Wouldn't it be fun to see these bits of color poking out of nests? Even if the yarn does not get used I think this is pretty hanging in my tree, and I have an empty jar to starting filling up with new yarn ends.
Look what is left of the nesting ball I made last year with Max's hair and bits of yarn. It is almost empty. I just might have to start collecting his hair again and refill it.
My alpaca nesting ball still looks full. Maybe the birds here think alpaca is a bit to warm to fill their nests. This ball has been on the ground more than I can tell you. I swear some raccoon has had its fun with me. I finally stuck it on a limb that had been cut off, like a marshmallow on the end of a stick. It is stuck on there pretty tight and has been for a few weeks. Maybe I have outfoxed this raccoon now?
Flowers are blooming, the weather is perfect, high 70's and sunny. My son is home, my family is all under one roof, my heart is full.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
