squares & birds & worms

[squares series | reflections series]

Good morning!

How are you? Did you have a pleasant weekend or perhaps it was rainy where you are? It stormed here last night and it's still grey out. And I will say the coffee smells really good to me. I was up late updating the shop to coincide with the launch of the new Poppytalk Handmade Market, "Mixed Tape". It really does look like a fun mix. It's exciting to be part of it, thanks Jan!

We saw a pair of yellow warblers yesterday out our kitchen window while eating brunch. [At least I think that's what they were. I got out my little birds of Kansas book to check.] I thought of Shari. We've also been seeing some American Goldfinches, perching atop our echinacea, eating the seeds. Seeing that yellow always makes me gasp!

I like these worms, don't you?

I hope you have a nice day. I'm going to pour another cup of coffee and head up to the studio.


ps. I should add,,, birds & worms & a big orange cat. Because right now as I've been typing this, Jack is sprawled across my lap, vying for my attention.

pps. You don't want to miss this giveaway at Linn's in celebration of her birthday. A handsewn picnic blanket, with ties! Yes, go...
