For the Birds

I love hearing the sounds of birds in my backyard.  There are a lot of birds that make their home in the trees, blue jays, robins, sparrows and sometimes a hummingbird.  We also have a lot of squirrels who share those trees and many is the morning that I have awakened to the sound of them chattering away.  They are constantly dive-bombing Tubby’s dish (Kathy’s dog) and providing lots of entertainment for the cats who watch from the screen door inside. 

I have 2 quilts in the planning stage; one will be a landscape quilt, and the other just some simple blocks and a little appliqué and paper-piecing.  They will both be purely scrap quilts with no real fabric requirements. 

The first one I will be posting colors on Sunday, and is called “Just Too Tweet”.   The second one will be posted the following week and is called “My Backyard”. 

I hope that you will come and sit in my backyard with me and enjoy the chirping and singing of the birds.  See you soon!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
