The Robins are back in Connecticut!!

Two weeks ago my niece, Michele, said she saw robins in with a cluster of other types of birds in Darien, where she works. The robins are back! Yea! I really love crows best but when the robins arrive it seems that Spring is here. What I don't understand is that they leave during September and October when the weather is fairly mild and then come back for the 2 hardest months of winter, January and February. I remember a few years ago the robins arrived on January 3rd! I don't know how many worms they are catching in this weather, although today was in the 50's, very mild, but rainy and windy. I got my Mom out to the grocery store (like anybody cares). duh. Searching for things to say here. Oh, and went out to lunch with some friends from a chorus I used to belong to.

Thought I would post some fabric that I want to make a few purses out of. I really like it. Then I added a seastar on top of it. I'd like to add some seastars to some pocketbooks and see what they look like....maybe behind some clear plastic or something sheer. Just a thought.

Best wishes, everyone.


  1. What beau-ti-ful fabric you have here. I just luv that pic of your Mother at sure doesn't look 100! Thanks for coming by...hope you will come again:)


  2. No-o-o-o-o Way!! Robins???? I am so-o-o-o jealous!! No Robins here in NE Pa. yet!!
    Love the fabric!!

  3. YES! As I sat on the sofa with my laptop on Sunday.....I too heard that familiar chattering outside. I tried to snap some photos of the Robin's as they were taking a bath in my fish pond. Since my pond is only about 10 feet from my sliding glass door, everytime I moved I scared them away. A true harbinger (sp??) of spring! Yeah! I hope to post the photos soon.

  4. Robins are not being seen by me yet here in Indiana. Winter is making sure we know it's still here too, it got colder yesterday and it's to get colder still this week. Brrrrrr

  5. With the Robins returning, does that mean that winter is almost over?? The fabric is beautiful. How is your Mom doing?

  6. Linda - we are so happy that you will be joining us for the Feb 19th Friday Night Sew-in! Can't wait to see what you work on.


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
