The rings arrived in the mail yesterday from one of my readers and I finished the pillow. I looked up ring bearer pillows on the internet to see how to put the ribbons on and only found 2 with ruffles. All of the rest were just square and a lot had wide ribbon or contrasting fabric wrapped around them. Maybe I should have looked them up before I started on this. I made this one from the bride's mother's dress so I wanted to use the ruffle from the skirt. I hope they are happy with it.
I haven't had as many birds this year as previous years and I think this might be why. I saw something big swoop across the back yard and then it landed in the tree. The hawk had his back to me for quite awhile.
I was in the other room for about 15 minutes and when I came back into the kitchen he had turned around and faced me. He was watching the Junkos cleaning up the seed that the squirrels spill. I don't know how long he was there altogether but he didn't seem to be in a hurry for a meal, or he was waiting for some bigger birds.
I spent most of the day yesterday cleaning out the guest room closet and moving summer clothes to a storage spot. When the guy came to put the pump on my heating system and I had to move everything in front of the little trapdoors, a lot of the stuff went in that closet. Today I need to vacuum the house since I'll have company staying with me for 3 days later this week.
