The only type of chicken we can have in our country HOA.

My Buddies back...not a peeping Tom, but a peeping Snake.
 
They are probably related.

Applique Tuesday......and a Flimsy

 
Remembering Annabelle
 
I bought my kit at Bloom Creek
 
All borders, applique, and embroidery have been added.
For me anything in the flimsy stage is a finish.
 
No more photos of this one unless I get it quilted.
 
Alrighty!!!
 
And how does Elly feel about it??
 


 
HOW MANY MORE UFOS??

 
You have got to be kidding me!
 
I'm going back to bird
watching.

 
Can't really tell what kind of birdy this is, but he's taking a little rest from the heat.

Not just Hexie Friday....I'm babysitting.

 
No Lucky not to eat.

 
Grin.  She's sitting on some of the petals.
 
I'm babysitting my grand dog Lucky while Big Mick takes Isla school shopping.  Nope...I just can't do the mall anymore.  I slow them down to much.
 
 
But Mom now they smell like dog.  You know I don't like dogs especially big dogs that slobber on me.
:D
 
 
Hold still Lucky!  I need photos for my blog.
 
 
Yikes not Big Mick's shoes
 

 
My knee...yes I'm still in PJ's

 
Smile
 
 
You know you have a pretty smile....where is it????


 
Stopped by the window while chasing Lucky.

 
Good Grief Charlie Brown....slow down.
 
I give up!!
 
:D :D

Hexies and Woody!

 
My Jungle Babies showing my latest Star Flowers.  I'm working in the same color way as last time, but with different fabrics.
 
 
 
Woody came back for a visit.  He's soooo cute.  You can't see his red hair in this photo, but it's definitely there....:D  He has lots of dead or almost dead trees to peck on courtesy of the Texas Drought.
 
Don't forget Angie's Hexie Friday.  She finished her basket with flowers and it's absolutely gorgeous.  Not to be missed.
 
Be sure and link up any hexies or any projects you would like to share on the Linky below.
 
Have a Great Weekend!!

But My Momma Told Me Not to Point.............and Applique Tuesday




I really enjoyed this video, and I hope you do as well.
Jan definitely trims off a little more than I do, but I'll be braver next time.  Since I'm all thumbs, I use my small Fiskars scissors to poke those points into place.

Remembering Annabelle

 
 I'm excited!!  I just sewed my last leaf.
