Another finish and a new visitor too...

I just finished this little diaper bag for a client...this is a Grandma diaper bag...something much smaller than a Momma diaper bag...but it's still a very good size...this Grandma has a 2 year old Grandson that has Cerebral Palsy and wanted something to carry when she babysits her Grandson...she wanted something not so babyish...but colorful...I found this Wee Wonderland fabric by Moda and thought it would be perfect for her ...
There's pockets on the side to keep a bottle or two handy...
And of course a ton of pockets inside for all those smaller items...
I've had a little visitor in the yard the last couple days...he's quite cute...pretty small...and friendly...or shall I say not so skittish as some other birds that visit our yard each day...
Here's a better picture...he has white all under...on his belly and legs...not sure what type of bird it is...I haven't found it in the bird book yet...I thought maybe it was a cow bird...but it's much smaller...it does some funny little flying too...up off the ground about 2 feet and then dives down and grabs a bug! It's quite fun to watch...but I can't be distracted...well...maybe a little...because I have much too much sewing to get done....which reminds me...I better get off the computer and back to my sewing!
I hope everyone that was in the path of Irene is safe and sound...I keep seeing pictures of the high waters on the East coast and I can't even imagine what they are going through...you are all in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that all gets back to normal for you very soon!
Enjoy your day, my friends...do something that makes you happy today!!!

Love the new bag Linda. The bird you are talking about is a flycatcher. They are fun to watch. They will make a snapping noise when they swoop down to snatch their meal. They are very graceful and pretty!

Linda...loved your chicken story! What a fun sight to see!!!! They do stay real close together. I think it is for protection. But I have never seen them cross the street!!!

Kris is right I do believe - a flycatcher - and they make the strangest sounds! Love the bag - and I'm certain your client will too - spot-on perfect! Have a wonderful Wednesday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hope this is the right post as today I am calling by as an Outdoor Wednesday participant, what a friendly little bird to let you photograph him.
