Saturday's happenings.

After John got the watering done this morning, we headed into town.
First stop was Lowe's where I bought another Shephards hook and some more purple grass. I love how the "tassels" sway in the wind. I am going to put them in the corner of the back yard where we have buried all our babies. I have 2 new hummer feeders for the hook.
Then we went to our favorite feed store for a new baby boy. I have named all our tiels after Bambi characters. The first were Bambi and Thumper. Thumper got outside so we replaced her with Faleen. She wasn't the sharpest crayon in the box (she bit through the electrical cord for my stove) and we replaced her with Flower. Bambi passed away one night at the age of 16 years. I replaced him with Prince. Prince just passed away from an upper respritory infection. I ran out of Bambi names so for right now I'm calling this one Bird.......the way Bambi said it. He is only 19 weeks old.

This is what I'm working on at the moment. I started it a few months ago. The blocks are done, the HST from making the flying geese are done and pieced and the outer border is ready to go. Now I have to figure out what fabric to use for the small inner border and how big to cut it to make it work with the HSTs.

I still have to put the side squares borders
on the new Dancing Daisies quilt
then the outer borders. I am liking
it better than the first one.
