If you enjoy listening to podcasts or videos while you are sewing (or just in general), The American Quilt Study has "Quiltside Chats" on youtube. Here is a list of episodes. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for the video to start (just warning you). Enjoy!
A few months ago, I wrote about The Snowy Day and Ezra Jack Keats (here). As part of the New York Public Library's 125th anniversary, the library announced which book was checked out most in their through the years: The Snowy Day. Read about it here.

When I was driving home from my mother's last week, I saw a flock of robins near my house. A FLOCK! There were over 20 robins flying around together. It amazed me. Although many robins migrate, we have always seen a robin or two here in our yard in the winter...but never a flock of them together.
Of course I looked it up and yes robins can stay north and flock together through the hard winter months. They stay together to guard against predators and to scavenge for food. Once spring arrives, they find their territory and guard it against other birds--including robins. It was such a startling sight to see and I had to share that with you!
Have a safe and happy day!
