Birds Outside My Window

Untitled-1nFall in Las Vegas is really more like a second Spring. The temperatures dip to about 70 degrees and everything turns green again after going brown during the crazy heat of the summer. October and November are two of my favorite months with crisp fall air and fabulous weather. I love to sit in my office and watch the birds in the trees outside my windows.

My only complaint about my little friends is that they tear apart my window screens for fibers for their nests. My screens have been completely dismantled from the bottom up to about 3 inches. In the spring the little birds swarm the window sills to pull whatever loose fibers they can from the remaining screen material. It a bit like a mini “Birds” movie. I would replace them but I think I would just be providing new material for the birds to destroy. I love my birds anyway and watch them almost every day doing what they do. My little tiny bit of nature in the desert.

These are beautiful! This would be so much fun to adapt for applique sometime. You know, for someone unlike me who is actually skilled at applique... :-) Of course it would be gorgeous on fabric as well -- do you have any new fabric offerings in the works?

I love these. So simple yet realistic, plus beautiful color combinations.

I can't wait until your 2012 book is released!
