What's New?

My migration from Nova Scotia to TX
was successful and relatively uneventful,
but it has taken some time for my mojo to return.

While en route, I joined my little sister and brother-in-law
in the search for a rare bird spotted in Maine.
We had success!
#328 on my life list.

Meet the Townsend's Solitaire,
a member of the thrush family, and
the only solitaire native to America north of Mexico.


As you can see from this map,
he was a long, long way from home!!

I think this snowy, cold environment
was a little more than he bargained for!
I concur,
but it's not much warmer down here in TX at the moment!

What else is new?

There's a new blog hop coming to town,

and I'm very proud to be a part of it.
I hope you'll join us.
To view the full schedule,
visit Pat at
Life in the Scrapatch

Life in the Scrapatch

and you will see that
I'll be keeping company with some
pretty fantastic quilter/bloggers
to support women worldwide
who are battling breast cancer.

A big thank you to Madam Samm
at  Sew We Quilt,
and to Pat for being our wonderful cheerleader.
