Stash Report - Week 17

This week's report is easy - nothing or out!!!  I'm still working on the fabric I bought for the graduation quilt.  I've started cutting and strip piecing. Check tomorrow on my design wall of my progress.

In the meantime, here is the robin-cam update.   All 4 babies are hatched and growing.  It's a very dark picture because of not using the flash and shooting into the light, but all 4 babies are craning their necks in anticipation for mom coming to feed them. Clicking on picture will make it more clear and enlarge it.

Here's mom bringing them lunch.
There wasn't enough to go around, and she made several trips with worms this big to feed the hungery crew.

 Even dad decided to help with lunch time.  In fact, he brought and shared with the Mrs.  Here they are together on the nest resting a bit after making the "Worms Dujour" delivery. 
The babies can't get enough.  Even after the parents flew away, any sound near their nest makes them open up their little beaks and ask for more! 
Won't be long now and they will outgrow the size of the nest and have to move out.  I worry about that day because if mom pushes them out of the nest too soon or they fall out because of over crowding, they have a long way down and it's not a soft landing below.  Hopefully they will make it fine and not break their necks or wings when they hit the ground.

Fly on over to Judy's and see what others have done with the stash this week. 


  1. I so enjoy seeing your updates on the little family!

  2. Love the bird pictures. It's not often anybody gets such a bird's eye view, literally, of this. It's very special.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing the photos with us! Hopefully they will have a successful first flight.
