I packed up some sewing (including the Sri Threads indigo owl above) this past weekend and headed into the Adirondacks – it was cold and quiet and wet and lovely. More and more lately I appreciate a vacation from the interwebs and it was my first walk in the big, wild woods since last year.
I needed the break – the air and the quiet badly – my pace has been frantic for weeks – not a very nice thing to do to myself. I should stop it. It was perfect- everything there is just waking up – little bits of new green beginning and birds are returning.
You may recall that last year I discovered that Eastern Phoebes collected my little scraps and threads and bits of stuffing for their nest. I did my little bird friends a solid and left out some extra this time – they liked the wool especially!
I brought my songbirds to finish and photograph too. The grey, misty day and evergreens made a perfect backdrop.
