New Header, Ramblings & Pretty Birdies...

This morning the plan of creating a new header came to me: chalkboard art! 
I've seen it all over the blogosphere for months now and thought I'd have a go as well. What do you think???

It looks so simple but it has taken me hours to compile it, all in Photoshop of course...

Yesterday, after I finished sewing my pajamas, I cleaned up my whole sewing area (I'm rather messy when I'm in the middle of things) and sorted out all the piping, binding, ribbons etc. Now the table is completely empty and ready for new crafty endeavors!

My crochet/ yarn bag  has been found again and it is with high hopes that I am planning to finally make a Granny Square! I haven't made it that far yet... Maybe now that I've put it down in writing it will actually happen?  <wink>

My cold seems to have subsided (thank goodness) after my two afternoons spent horizontally on the couch. Because of 'Martin Luther King- Day' on Monday we have a long weekend now, so I'll just take it easy a few days longer and I should be all chipper again come Tuesday!

Talking about being chipper: I found some more birdies on the feeder this afternoon...
