It's hard to believe a month has flown by since my last post!  The robins have been and gone. There were five babies this time.

The nest looks a little crowded doesn't it?

Poor Daisy, DD's Chocolate Lab, kept getting dive bombed by Momma and Poppa Robin whenever she got too close to the pear tree. They must have thought she was a large squirrel! lol

 In between all the dull daily chores I have managed to do little applique too!  Here are photos of the first two blocks of a new design I am working on.
I haven't decided on a setting yet, but for now I am happy with the results. What do you think?

Besides being Father's Day today, it is my son's birthday, so I'd better get busy and finish his birthday cake.

Bye for now.

Yes, I bet that nest got really crowded as they grew.

Lovely blocks. I particularly like the carnations in the lower block. It's beautiful.
