Cutting, class, cute bird..........

I finally made the first cuts on the batik kits.  I have 35 fabrics cut and 5 more ready to press and cut.  It was getting warm in the basement with the iron on so I gave up after the 9 p.m. news last night.
Today I am teaching my color class.  I had 7 kits leftover from NC and I had 7 students signed up.  2 called last night with husband health situations and cancelled so I hope I have 5 students when I get there this morning.
I saw a goldfinch outside my kitchen window on a coneflower but by the time I got my camera he had flown to one of the volunteer sunflowers.

I was wondering what bird that was when I visited my uncles last week. They are so pretty.

Good luck with your class.

Wonderful camouflage Mr. Goldfinch, state bird for a few states. Lovely, you have a sharp eye. I'm sure that your class WILL be a success.

Well, isn't it nice that you have a great free buffet for the birds out there! Hope your class went well. That's a lot of cutting. I was doing some of that last night, too.

Looks like that finch was really hungry. We have them at our feeder here also, and they love black oil sunflower seeds. More than the special seeds for finch.

Those green batiks look so special... Did you go to bed with visions of little squares dancing in your head ?
