The Cardinal

Have you begun to notice Muriel and all her birdie groupies heading back south? Seems a little premature to me. I don't remember voting on whether it was time for them to return from whence they came.


We oughta trick them. Carry this bag around; and they'll get good and confused and hang around for a good long while yet. Maybe even bring some extra long days of sunshine and heat with them.

"The Cardinal" is made up of a tea towel from Steinbach thrift; a repurposed, unfinished plaid quilting project; some gorgeous red cord from my pal Patti; shoulder strap by: Loretta's blue skirt; tip of shoulder strap by Patti. The inside is Mr Sample Guy; and I think the lady down the street. (Ruth's mom).
Amazing how my brain can remember where nearly every scrap of fabric came from; yet annually forget the birthdays of everyone I love. There's a bunch of other stuff that I always forget; but I can't think of them right now....

Bids here until 8 pm, cst. Come one, come all, from far and wide.
Happy Tuesday.

this morning I briefly wondered if we would have bird lovers in the bag blog world. Silly me. For one; I forgot about Lory being the greatest bird watcher, and her lastborn named Katie Bird for her perch in the tree overlooking my yard.

I'll be "away from my desk" for a while this evening. So don't go into full blown panic if you don't see my official stamp of Birdie-dom by 8 pm.

My cut-off is 8:00 blogger tme.

...... not to suggest that you should all stay away as well! But lucky for Ariel Gordon; you did.
