Just a bit of waffling today

We cant keep up with the amount of food that the birds are eating at the moment. The 3 bird feeders are emptied within two days whereas normally we dont refill them for at least 10 days. Why you may ask, well there are so many babies in our garden its a wonderful sight watching them all being fed by their mothers. Not just sparrows but we have young doves, blackbirds and a baby robin. Here is the robin sqarking to his mother to feed him again
Today I will try to capture his mum actually feeding him.

Lots and lots of birthday's this month. Unfortunately I cant seem to concentrate on sitting down to make a card so here are a couple out of my box with the names added.

Hopefully I will get my concentration back soon.

I started this little project two months ago and only just finished it yesterday. I am not totally happy about the way it turned out and I think I need more practice with a glue gun but I am sure I will get there eventually.

Its a pin cushion on the top with emergency supplies inside. This is for a personal shopper that I went to visit back in March and I have used some material that I got at the NEC and the papers and ribbon are Stampin' Up!

Good news on the diet front, I have now lost a total of 9" in just 4 weeks, I am really pleased. The bad news is that the dress I purchased to wear at my wedding is too big...ooppps. I am not going to worry about it today though.

Just another couple of days and I will be a year older, I am like a big kid and love having birthdays.

Thanks for having a read today and if you get chance, please leave a comment as I really like reading what you think and then I can visit your blog too.
