second hummingbird binding

Did you ever have one of those days when you don't quite feel yourself, you're not sure why, and you push yourself to get a few things done? I always go over all my pills just in case I forgot one but I seem to have taken them all. Maybe it's just the rain and the thunderstorms we've been having all week.
Anyway, yesterday, I got the binding on the second hummingbird quilt and as you can see, I've almost finished sewing it down.

I promised myself that if I got two rows attached to each other on the quilt I'm trying to finish, that I could quilt for the day and curl up with my book. Not a good deal! I actually sewed the whole row and pulled out all the pins, only to discover that my needle hadn't been threaded! I re-pinned and resewed. There are two spots that I want to adjust but that will be for another day.
Aside form not feeling quite well, these chickadees that were flitting in and out to the feeder hanging on the window in front of my machine weer distracting me.

I am going to take a little break form my art quilting, just so you know, while I get this gift quilt finished. I cannot show it either, so I might miss some blogging for a bit. I'll see, I might feel the need to do a little creative work here and there.

The hummingbird is just lovely Holly. This rainy weather does it to me....heavy eyes and headaches. But I just keep dragging myself around...lol

A time out is okay. I'm thinking that its time for me as well. Lovely humming bird art. I also wanted to tell you I have seen an oriole twice in the yard.

Yes, I know just what you mean about not feeling yourself. I call it doldrums. You just can't get moving in any direction. Lovely hummingbird art quilt!!!

Hi Holly
I thoroughly enjoyed looking at your work. I like the way you combine painting and stitchery. The results are gorgeous.

Your hummingbird is just beautiful. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Like Elle I saw two oriels in our yard too. They are early this year. We don't usually see them until August when our trumpet vine is in full flower.

The little hummingbird is lovely. I can see you get your inspiration from right out your window!
