Our Cats' Window of Entertainment!!!

Hi There!

Today, at dinner time - that's our 12 o'clock meal - I FINALLY saw a bird at our "Bird Bell" and, I had my camera on hand!

Didn't dare get too, too close but I've cropped the picture and this is what our visitor looks like.

Since I'm new to this, I have NO IDEA what kind of bird this is.

Anyone out there know?

I was standing quite a distance from the door, when I took it's picture.

And it was approximately 2 minutes later that I came to the conclusion that the cats now have their own TV.... or perhaps I should be calling it an "Entertainment Unit"... or their "Window of Entertainment"?!?!

Unfortunately, they scare off the birdies. So far, only the few brave ones have nervously stopped, for a bite to eat.
(see Minou and Callie in bottom part of picture)

You can't see it, but their tails are swishing back and forth.


And yet another "FINALLY" moment!!!

I continued working on our "Magic Tiles" mini quilt, today.

Blocks are all done...

Added the black "grout" around the blocks...

Added a 1 inch (finished) mini border of "tiles" and then, added the black border.

Gilbert should be quilting this one, tomorrow.

He plans on using medium to large stippling or meandering in the center, with black thread. Then, change the thread to orange or light blue and do fancier work on the black border.

I'll definitely post pictures of when it's finished.

The finished size is approx. 34" X 34".

Brain Worm of the Day?

Actually, it's been in my head
for the past 2 or 3 days!

Fool On The Hill

As for my countdown to Florida.....

Aawwwwwww Come On!!!!

You MUST have realized that
I'd be doing a
Sweet Sixteen theme,
for my 16th day...


Hope you're having a
SUPER Saturday!!!!

LOVE how your quilt turned out...that mini border is absolutely perfect!

Can't wait to see how it looks after Gilbert adds his creative quilting to it!

Nice work on the piecing your fabric placement and great colors!
