Bird Brained


So ... I'm in the middle of not one, not two, but three projects ... which is pretty much pig heaven for me. And just so you know, pig heaven is good, like winning the lottery ... or pie.

But as I'm sitting there sewing my heart out, I look around and realize that I'm sitting in the middle of an aviary, surrounded by birds. So I picked up my camera and started clicking away, being careful not to duplicate birds that have already been showcased here ... and here.

I want it on the record that I liked birds before birds were cool. (I really can't say the same thing about country music.) I swear I'm ahead of my time. I have had my eye on these bird stamps, seen below, for almost a year, but resisted buying them because ... well ... I clearly have enough birds and I really am not that much into stamping. But, succumb I did and then came home and realized that I had had my eye on this exact box of stamps for the entire year, because the ink in them was all dried up.

Sigh.

All this rambling clearly brings us to the question of the day:

How many projects are you generally working on at the same time?

And while you are working ... what are you surrounded by?

I used to work on more than one project at a time, but I found I didn't finish things that way. Now I have to force myself to finish one project before starting something new. Although in the case of a quilt, that just means get the top finished :-)

I love your birds, especially that beautiful white porcelain one.

I have countless quilts, knitting, and crochet projects going on at the same time. I like it that way because I never, ever, ever get bored. Soon...the garden will need to be tended to and I will be outside most of the time, and that's when I will be surrounded birds, birds, and more birds!!!

I work on many projects at one time. Makes me nuts so why not join me? Your designs are wonderful! I LOVE birds too!!!

I have at least two going at once, may be three. If I didn't have to work full time I would have more going. It's not that I can't concentrate, it's that sometimes you get stuck on one, and can move forward on another; or you just don't feel like doing what you were doing yesterday!

You have a wonderful blog here.
