No doubt about it - can't get much cuter than a snuggled Sammie!


Given my name, I collect bird stuff - eggs, feathers, nests, figurines, etc. I used to raise angora rabbits and the coolest nest I ever found was lined with angora. Those must have been some WARM eggs!!!!


I love how Sammy's ears don't stand all the way up (like Toby's). He is *such* a cutie!

My fiber filled suet feeder does not appear to be a hit yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.


I've postponed learning to knit socks till next year but I'm still looking for a heel I can do for toe up socks that won't be as holey as my first pair ;-) The tutorial will be much appreciated!


Beautiful socks! I just love them.


Never seen anyone share their fiber with the birds and squirrels before. I have read the Harlot's tribulations with gray squirrels stealing her roving...too funny! I guess they use it to warm their nests. Nifty:)



That's funny. I just put out fiber for my birds this morning! I saw a robin carrying some fuzz around, so I decided to help it out. Usually I brush out the dog and stick his fur in the bushes, but he was sleeping, so I went for the wool. Haven't seen any takers yet, though.

Last year I put dog hair out and within five minutes I had a chickadee trying to fit great quantities in its beak. Too funny.

I consider it a compliment to find my wool in a bird nest. Hope you have luck with it!


Hmmm, I suppose I should put my dog's hair out for the birds -- goodness knows we collect enough of it just off the floors!

Love the sock, and I am looking forward to the heel tutorial.


Sounds like a good weekend. It seems like everyone had a good one. It's amazing what a difference some nice weather will make.


Happy Earth Day to you too!

I'm a big back yard bird enthusiast and I love your idea of putting out fiber for the birds to use for nesting. What an excellent idea!

Sammie is a cutie!
