Listen to the road

We have sheep (not for food) who graze out back on about 3 acres. We see Bluebirds every
year about this time around the nesting boxes we put out on fence posts. Bluebirds
only eat grubs, which we have aplenty out in the back. Every year at the tail end of winter we
have the Bluebirds checking out these nesting boxes. Sitting of the wires, two sets of birds
checking out one house, like potential buyers.

The necklace above is listed in my Etsy shop.  On the back I've added "Bluebird" in old
typeface. This is a good time of the year out here.With all the dark things going on in this
world the earth continues in her cycles where we leave her alone. I do wish we would leave
her alone.


  1. This is such a sweet necklace and of course bluebirds are my favorite. Have a wonderful week in your studio...your sheep sound like a great another you felt your wool? Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  2. I haven't felted it so far. The roving is so dirty and full of sticks and stuff that it
    never tempted me. But this year I may take another look at it...take care.

  3. Hi Patty. I'm in the OBX of North Carolina - Cape Hatteras National Seashore area and also part time in Raleigh. We are neighbors! I see you have signed up for What If - me too!
    It's going to be such a ride.
    Anyway - so nice to meet you. I look forward to getting to know you better.
    P.S. Have you ever attended the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival in New Port News? I go every year.

  4. Hi, Patty. Came over from the What If Diaries to enjoy your blog. I've never really seen a bluebird. What color they have. Lovely necklace.
    best from Tunisia,

  5. Hey Cathie...I noticed how near you are. I love the Quilt show every year but this
    year stayed home-not working on purpose and staying away from temptation!
    I love Jude's classes. We should exchange info. My sister in law lives in OBX and
    I plan to visit her this summer. Would be great to meet!

    1. Hi Nadia, I love to meet new friends in Jude's classes. Looking forward to
      sharing ideas with you. Bluebirds always startle me with that clear blue
      color. I collect houses at charity shops to nail to our fences so they nest
      here. So good to meet never know if we may meet in person!


I appreciate your comments.
