Woodpecker, Inlaws, and New Robe

We know they are woodpeckers but what kind is anybody's guess. This is Mister. Mrs. comes around, too, but she does not have the red spot on the back of the neck. They could be Downy, Nuttall's or Ladder-backed... They like the suet block we put at the end. (Beyond you can see my Japanese Maple we bought it at about 3" tall for $1.49 at a plant sale. It must be about 12' now... and it's the third year it's getting seeds... I haven't figured out when to harvest and plant, so no babies to give at Halloween.


 We had lunch with Hubby's Sister and her Hubby yesterday at In N Out. It just amazes me that we were there for almost 4 hours...seems like 30 minutes. Love you guys!
And this is the latest sewing project... You will see why.





That's a shirt below the hole, so please, don't be offended.  There are other holes, too. See the "new" tie I made from quilting fabric several years ago.

Here is where I already mended it with quilting fabric.... The fabric is just falling apart, and really a waste of time to mend anymore. I don't know how long he's had this thing, but it's a goner soon.
 
Sew I must get back to the pattern cutting.  The pattern is from the 70s, when I made him a striped corduroy robe kind of like the picture. Oh, I forgot to take a picture of the pattern....
 
Here it is...(that was quick, huh).
Isn't this the 70s, for sure?
 
He'll model it for you when I get it done... he's a big ham and loves that his image will be there for all posterity or is that posterior? LOL Anyway, sew and tell soon.
 
Hugs,
Terri

  1. Thanks for sweet words on my blog. When I see your maples I really wish I have one so that I can make some prints of the beautiful leaves. The pattern I saw reminds me I used to make clothing with the packs in 70s. Happy time flies, like you said 30min for 4 hours. That is 4 years for me for 40 years........

  3. LOL - he needs a new robe in the worst way. I like the fabric you are using. I try to do something for DH every once in a while so he doesn't complain about all the time I spend in the sewing room. Thanks for linking to Hexie Friday - as I said love to see all kinds of projects.

  4. I'm behind on my blog reading. Yes. I't time Mr. Quiltncards had a new robe. I like the fabric and pattern you chose. I don't know a lot about birds. I got a bird feeder. Was enjoying it, too. Watching the birds. Then my grandchildren's cat starting sitting on the ground directly under the feed with her little head tilted up watching them, too. So I took the feeder down : (

  5. I can see you're the kind of couple that uses things until they fall apart and then mend and make do ...I like that ! It seems to be a lost art these days. I frequently mend and make do myself !

  6. And a nice plaid it will be, too. I never learned how to sew clothes (despite my fathers and grandmother's best tries). I think your woodpecker visited my tree last year. DON'T send him back!
