Road Runner in My Back Yard

I had the back slider open because it was nice this morning and the cats like to look out. All the sudden, I heard a weird noise. The cats looked a little freaked out so I looked outside and found this guy hanging out.

He was very interested in our hummingbird feeder and was watching them and they were watching him. I carefully got my camera and snapped a few pictures. I also got a short film of him but it was of him leaving.

They are fairly large birds and quite the character!

Nitetime Needlers Crazy Quilt Blocks

I think I have finished my blocks for the Nitetime Needlers Opportunity Quilt. An Opportunity Quilt is used by a quilt guild to raise money for programs for the guild. Tickets are sold for a raffle of the quilt.

I made 3 total for it. Here are the last two.

Here are some details of this first block.

I was worried a little bit about how much to add to them as I don't know what the other block makers will do on their blocks. So, I left it up to Marci and Pam to decide if they want to add more after they get them all back. They will have a challenge with this quilt but I am sure that it will be fabulous because they are both so talented.

A detail of the little silk ribbon flowers. Silk Ribbon is not my forte, but I try.

I will be buying several tickets for this quilt for myself. I would really like to win it!
