Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love
A quilt is something you make to keep someone you love...WARM.....
What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.
My BF loves to put out bird food and cat food. The sparrows and finches usually dump as much as they eat so the doves come around and clean up the mess. That's how a couple of doves became lunch. Kitties would sit quietly and then pounce!!! I had barn swallows in Washington state that nested above my car and would dive at me whenever I tried to get into my car. I love birds!!! When I lived in Alabama we had the best assortment of birds!! Loved them all, even the woodpecker who would peck on our aluminum siding!!

Ugh, I think I'd trade you for the mocking birds if you'd take some seagulls lol Just like on "Finding Nemo"... Rats with wings... lol At least a mocking bird is small enough for a cat to catch and keep the population under control, a seagull would carry off a cat if it thought it was fit to eat!

I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!
Here in Louisiana we have plenty of diffrent birds. I even have your woodpecker Pam every morning I get woken up by the sucker tapping on the side of my air vents on the top of my home. We also have a mockingbird that for the last three years comes back just to look for our cat. Little Miss just pays it no mind as it dive bombs her everytime she walks out the door. We always know where she is as the bird will be just a few feet way yelling at her. About four years ago we had one pair of Swallow-tailed kites around the house this year we have about 7 pairs love sitting outside and watching them in the early morning or late evening.
This is for all you Seagul haters: My daughter actually witnessed an Eagle swoop down and snatch a Seagul right up and fly away with it in Downtown Seattle one Summer day! Quite a sight that left everyone with her in disbelief.
My FAVORITE bird in my backyard is the Hummingbirds. We have so many that come to feed my DH thinks it's an infestation!
Quilters make great comforters.
