Bats in my belfry...

or a bird in my kitchen!

One morning a few weeks ago the dogs were going nuts and I kept hearing a bird chirp. Well my first thought was they had hurt a bird in the backyard, so I went to see and they were all 4 in the kitchen barking like maniacs at this bird.

Cute huh? You should have seen me chasing it with the broom! I looked like a total dork lol.

And then I scared the poop outta the poor bird......

Bird isn't so cute anymore! Took about 15 min but I got it to fly out the front door.

Here is my first "on my own" paper pieced block. Turned out pretty good, except I placed a piece incorrectly and hade a little gap on one corner. But I was able to put another little piece to cover it and now you can't tell :)

I'm now working on a wall hanging from Carol Doak's Yahoo group. It's a celebration wreath she designed for the groups birthday. Hopefully I can finish it this weekend. I think it's going to turn out pretty good, only a couple of little mistakes design elements. I'm really liking paper piecing, I like the precision of it.

Toodles for now -- I'm going to go try and figure out how to do one of those cute signatures that everyone has. Wish me luck rofl!!

I love that quilt block, too. It looks GREAT!

Are you going to join Shey's paper piece round robin? I think that will be fun.
