. Our back yard is a bird haven. lots of feeders,bird baths. We have the wrens, finches, warbler, goldfinches, robins, blue jays, flickers, quail, mourning doves, plus this year we aquired the ring neck dove to our collection. Our morning coffee is spent watching the birds as they clean out the feeders.
I am 84 years old have several old folks ailments but that doesn't stop me from my wood work. I keep very active.
Maggie still works and does the staining and finishing needed to complete the projects. She also has added her crochet projects to our shop to have a little feminine touch. Also the computor work involved in getting these to our Etsy shop, which we love
Also in my spare time I have picked up my crochet hook again and making my dish cloth/washcloths . I will be adding some of my crocheting projects along with the wood projects in our shop, picking pretty colors and matching them into sets. Check them out.
