Berry Picking Time

No, no.....not me!  The birds!!! 
I knew it was getting close to time.  I had seen all the robins in the yard, which means that the berry robbing would start any day.  The big holly tree next door is loaded with red berries, so I knew they would soon be on the menu for our hungry visitors.  (Last year I watched the robins strip this tree in just a few hours!!!!)  They were across the street yesterday, but they started here this afternoon.  You should hear all the tweeting and chirping....even POTUS doesn't hold a candle to these guys.
  You can just barely see two of the robins on the right side of the picture....but, take my word for it, there were loads of robins on this tree.

The daffodils are starting to bloom in my yard.  Was it this early last year????  
  I need to start writing this stuff on my calendar!

Now...for my question of the week:  Have you ever taken one of the Craftsy classes offered online? 
  I got a notice today of a serger class, and I'm curious.  I haven't been doing a lot of sewing or serging the last couple of years (hemming placemats, mug rugs and towels doesn't really count, huh?)  I got my first serger in the late '80's, and wore that first one out!  This is actually my third serger. I need to get reacquainted with my equipment, I think.
  Just wondering if anyone out there has taken one of the Craftsy classes.
  Before you know it, it will be time to get the garden that will cut into my sewing and weaving time!

Happy Weaving!

I saw my first bluebird today, and the goats are already shedding their fabulous fiber, a goos 2 weeks ahead of last year!

I have not taken a serger craftsy class but friend Mary (Biblioblog) has and she liked it
quite a bit and I know it helped her with her first serger.
