An Owl, a Road Runner, and a Fox...........unbelievable morning.

Mick went out to take a picture of the road runner and found the Owl in the tree.  The RR went in the same tree and chased off the owl....weird.  Guess the RRs have a nest around here somewhere.

AND THEN along came Jones.....low walking Jones....grin
Fox was thirsty!  Elly alerted me of the fox out the window, or I would have missed her.

The Sampler and Mick's Home Grown Tomatoes

The fabric came in the mail yesterday.

Finished Block 22

Mick made this sandwich and enjoyed his homegrown tomatoes.

More fox sitings.  It's been so long since we have seen the babies.  I was trying to take pictures through the blinds.  The babies pictures didn't come out, but I got two of the Mom.  She was going to check out the Road Runner.  She did not eat the bird....grin.

The babies are now about 1/2 the size of the momma fox.

Sew Spooky and more.

Progress on one block from Sew Spooky.  This is my Awsome Autumn QAL.

Elly is still checking out her new home every chance she gets.

Big Mick cut the tree and I pulled on the rope and ran.  Running was a good idea, because the tree landed where I was standing. 

That was a big tree....Wow.

One of my little buddies.


Linky places to go visit.

Verse of the Day

Isaiah 40:31

New International Version (NIV)
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Play Dead Baillie

Who's that Kitty on my Design Wall on a Monday No Less

Sweet Elly, that's who!
Elly's off sleeping right now so I have a moment of non-petting.  This little girl loves to be loved.

I did start cutting on my one of my house block of Sew Spooky.

This should be fun and hopefully most of it will be made from my stash.  That should make Big Mickie really happy. 

Check out the linkys below and see what everyone else sewing.
