I had a couple questions about the curved quilting using the little cardboard template. A couple people asked how I kept the piece of cardboard in place. I just held it there while I stitched alongside it. Not hard to do. Someone else suggested that I should make my template out of freezer paper and iron it down. Look at this thing! That's a lot of ironing and stitching and peeling and ironing and stitching and peeling and ... Unnecessary. The cardboard template is easy—really.
Thanks for all the suggestions regarding the attack robin. Somebody suggested borrowing a BB gun. Whoa! You want me to shoot my eye out?! So far today the robin has been quietly sitting on the nest. If she (I'm now thinking it's a "she" since she is sitting on the nest) commences attacking the window again my next strategy will be to lower the blinds, though I hate to lose the light and the view.
