Never before have I seen the wild turkeys in this area. They roam about considerably, but one day here they were close by. Two misters and about 5 ladies. Very dignified. A little later I saw one perching on a telephone wire, while another became enamored of my hubcap and chased the car down the street...
And there are lots of precursors of spring:
And I'm going to visit grandsons...here is a tiny section of Liam's ancestor quilt, which I've begun to piece together. I won't show more until it's further along:
That's all for now, dear readers. My very best to you on Valentine's Day...

Lovely visitors Suzanna - you live in a fascinating neighbourhood. I look forward to the finished quilt. Just working towards the final stitches on a small quilt myself.ReplyDelete
Hi Elizabeth...I'm about to go on a long train ride, with intermittent internet access, so I have a BIG project to keep me busy. Your quilt is lovely!Delete
Urban turkeys! Can you send a bit of spring up here pretty please. Liam will be thrilled.ReplyDelete
Hi Penny...I'm eager to see how he responds to it! Am about to head off to the cold East...wish I could take these little hints of spring with, and hoping I'll have enough warm clothes, if not there is always the quilt!Delete
Happy Galentines Day! (the day before is Valentines day for girls) I found it on another blog and I am spreading the love!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your wild turkeys and don't let them chase you down the street as they are wont to do!
I like that! Galentine's Day! Thanks, Roberta!Delete
we get those kind of visitors when there is a dead critter around. that flower is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
All over town in February the flowering plums and cherries have started blooming...it seemed unseasonal to me from the east coast, but it happens every year and now I love it!Delete
That's what I like so much about your blog, you show the wild life in your surroundings. I have never seen a wild turkey. How long will your train ride take? I think this will be a lovely quilt! Spring is early in your part of the world, we're still having ice and snow here. Lots of ice skating going on in the Netherlands.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandra...oh I envy you the ice-skating...right now I'm in Florida,staying at a friend's house waiting for the train home...it will take 5 days...lots of stitching time!Delete
Suzanna, the turkeys are so cool, you'll have to needle felt some now! I like the little peek at the quilt -- it matches your blog colors! xoReplyDelete
Hi Peggy...I've been hearing reports that the wild turkey population is increasing all over...they are so big...and all those feathers! Yes, I think a needle felted turkey is in order soon...Delete
What beautiful colours in Liam's quilt and love the stitching showing through...look forward to seeing more.ReplyDelete
Love the new neighbours!
Hi Jacky...thank you! The hand stitching is slow but I am really enjoying the feel of it...also, because of Jude's classes and this lovely community, I feel so much braver about trying new ideas...Delete
I enjoyed visiting you today. Seeing your groundhog cookies was such a great way to celebrate seeing your and the zoo animal's shadow. I doubt you were looking forward to 6 more weeks of winter.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your healing cloth and ancestor quilt you are working on.
Hi Becky...thank you! I'm still away from home and not too able yet to keep up with seeing what everyone's been up to, but I'm really glad you stopped by!Delete
You've got nice neighbours! Are they still there. I tried to post a comment a week ago, but was having some trouble with blogger, I hope this comment will reach you. I love the idea of a ancestor quilt, connecting your grandson to his ancestors.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandra, I think the comment came through...I've been visiting my son and his family and just enjoyed my 50th high school reunion here in Florida and will start home tomorrow...meanwhile I'm giving moral support to one of my high school chums while she organizes her sewing room!Delete
