I'm not the only one nesting

Check out this little bird! We hung up 5 birdhouse gourds this summer. John's Dad grew them in his garden last year. We thought they'd be more for decoration than for birds, but what a treat to see one in use. This one is in a cherry tree right next to my hosta garden and Mary's sandbox. Yesterday while Mary played in the sand, I watched this bird take sticks and other small items into the gourd. It was so cool. I was surprised that it wasn't too scared with Mary right there. I hope I see it again this afternoon when we go out.

I got my dishcloth project done! woohoo! I need to take some pics and send them out in the mail tomorrow. Next up, dyeing prefolds and making a couple more diapers.
