My mojo is back.  This quilt is one that I am going to quilt for our quilt guild, Quilters by the Sea.  I didn’t piece it.  I just picked it from the table of the many that “Need to be Quilted” pile. 

It’s ready to start sometime tomorrow, or maybe the weekend.

Remember the bluebird. 
My cousin, who is a birder, sent me this information about my picture:

The great picture of the bird is a Steller's Jay. Aren't you lucky? They love being in the forest all the way to sea level and particularly love urban backyards. He's a distinct California form. He has a blackish head, little bit of rusted color on back or sides and of course, the crest. The female and male look alike - little distinction. If they have a nest nearby, they both take care of the eggs and they only have one set a year. Usually about 3-5 eggs that incubate for 14-16 days and they leave the nest within four days following incubation. They are seed and acorn lovers. That's about all I know about them. Enjoy them while you can. 

Quilt happy,

Glad your mojo is back. How brave of you to quilt someone elses quilt. I picked one up last time at our meeting, but I put it back before the end of the evening and took a kit home to piece and quilt. It still isn't done, so I probably should just have taken the flimsy. Great birding report. Nice to have someone in-the-know like that.

Glad to read the mojo is back.

We have a few of those jays in our yard and they love to scatter all the seed from the feeders.

How generous of you to quilt the quilt. Looking forward to seeing it progress.
