Birds and Bay Windows

Too little bluejays sitting...

I keep trying to get pictures of more than one bluejay.  Here are two and here are three…

Two and one

There are for sure 5 regular bluejays so far a few “mesonges”(I have to find the English word) , one woodpecker and a chipmunk.  More wildlife to come as winter starts.  Nature and creativity goes together…the simplicities of life.

As for the bay window, it is almost here.  I will post it in the next posting because right now there is just a huge hole in the wall letting all the cold air in :(.  All the other windows and doors have been changed and I feel like I’m living in a brand new house, light and airy! Just amazing!

Hole in the wall

Yes, it is October 22nd and it looks like December 22nd.  There is quite a bit of snow on the ground.  We waited for over an hour with the this window open; do you like the cedar?  We may cut it down…or its twin over on the other side…Sheila, does the Scot travel with chainsaw ;)? But it was well worth it:

The man is coming back tomorrow to do the finishing.  The finishing will be similar to this:

Just so modern!  And here is the new door and side window:

And one of the windows in my sewing room:

The house has even more light than ever!

As I was getting ready for the windows I had to declutter so I moved my material which was under a window and put in a shelf in my closet….my sewing room was this way:

I got rid of five garbage bags of stuff….four went to the second-hand shop, and one for garbage.  I have a lot more to go but I made decisions and just stormed ahead.  My sewing room is looking less cluttered though and I’m finding a place for everything.  I don’t know about any of you who read my blog, but my problem is, that if I don’t see what I have I don’t use it.  How do we organize so that it doesn’t look cluttered!  I use baskets and then forget what is in the baskets :(.

In the midst of sorting I found a bag of these:

Envelopes with secret codes

Some have colours and some have numbers and here is what was in the envelopes:

There are two kinds, Patons Beehive Tapestry Wool and Orchidee brand.  What a nice little find.  I vaguely remember where they come from, dumpster diving days :)…long story.

And here they are now:
