Working on two versions of a scene is good too. I'm seeing the advantages in switching from one to the other without the need to change thread colors.
I have translated a little organizational tool learned from a friend ( thanks Sue) into keeping my threads for the current project corralled. I purchased a bunch to use in a shallow drawer for sorting thread by color. The extras bins are great to take matching colors for the current project to the machine. I used to have them rolling around on the top of the cabinet and of course falling off, dah.
Before Christmas, I purchased some solar powered colored lights and used them on my branches that are tied to the back deck. As the days grow longer, the lights are staying on longer--currently until nearly close to 10PM. It is such a pretty view.
I was greeted by this sight of the same view this morning.
And here's my birdie pic of the day.
