Whilst I was taking tea - black tea …….

Bit of a funny post title I admit,
I got my colour months confused for RSC2015 - black or neutral last month
and orange was scheduled for September - I goofed and
did the opposite!!!

Anyway I did catch up with six black Scrappy Mountains and
this week I have done a catch-up with a black teapot, naturally with other colours added!


Now comes the bit about what happened "whilst taking tea" - 
I am crazy about birds, I feed them daily and have
blackbirds nesting just outside our glass slider doors
out onto the deck, they even "talk" to me through the other
house windows whether I'm in the lounge, bedroom or sewing studio,
at least the female does, she and her other half take
raisins off a little old table on the deck as I am busy putting them down!

Needless to say we have umpteen sparrows around the garden, today we had
a few heavy showers of rain and at one point my husband told me to come see 
three sparrows sheltering under the table! By the time I got there
and quietly opened the door only one was brave enough to have
his photograph taken


can you just see him perched on the wheel of the sewing
machine base?

Well I'm off to catch up with a TV programme and tomorrow I'm
all ready to play a little for
Ad Hoc Improv Quilters.

Hope all in the USA are enjoying a long weekend to
celebrate Labor Day, I'm linking up with
Angela and RSC 2015
more from me in a few days.

Wonderful black teapot! We have a flock of red-wing blackbirds visiting us this weekend. They usually come in large numbers in the Spring & Fall, taking over the feeders for a few hours each morning & evening.

I love your teapot and how you made the lid. And I really, really, really love those pots on your deck!

Black tea from a black teapot, how appropriate. It is so sweet. How lucky you are to have so many birds visit you.

The urns on either side of your trestle table on the porch are so colorful they distract from the sparrow! I've put out a clay saucer on one of our porch railings for the birds to use during out drier-than-normal summer. It's been a delight to watch them congregate and bathe. (Excellent tea pot by the way!)

Such a cute photo of the sparrow.

You know I love your teapots! And right after I read your post I looked out the window and a hawk swooped into the tree.

Lovely teapot. I like the orange in the background. Great photo. I was lucky enough to catch a hummingbird in my garden last week.

Love the colors in your teapot. What a sweet little bird. It took me a minute to spot him. So glad you shared the photo.

Your little teapot is soooo cute!
I'm playing a bit of RSC catch up myself. Missed making some blocks during the year.

Cathy said...

Love the teapot! And that bird is so cute under your sewing machine table. :)

Another lovely teapot. Every time I see one of these blocks I think I must go and buy some of those dots. I have resisted so far but it's only a matter of time!
