Hopping around...

This family of feathers (Canada Geese) were crossing, at the crosswalk, about 2 miles inside the city limits, on the east side of our city, not that long ago...
I think this would be more than one family... 8-)
I just discovered an awesome site visiting Lurline's blog. She is doing one of their BOMs... It is called Material Obsession. I know a whole bunch of you gals have seen this blog before, but it is new to me... I think...?... or for the first time again maybe!?! lol! Check it out. She has some awesome creations happening there! 8-)

I read on Pat's blog of a great tute/way that she found to "square up" those blocks that may be a tad "off", with freezer paper, on Oh, Fransson's site. It is towards the bottom of the tute... Check it out! Thanks for the link Pat! Looks like a very helpful hint! 8-)

DD2 was at the hospital Thursday night from 9:30pm till about 3am Friday morning with MrRose (boyfriend), that ended up with a bit of heatstroke... The boy spent the day (38*C with the humidity) working on a roof all day. Though they keep well hydrated, he ended up quite ill, vomiting and shivering uncontrollably... DD2 forced him to the hospital, of course, a male!!! Anyway, he is home till Monday now and was told to wet his hat every so often to keep his head cool while working in that heat and humidity...

The fur-girls, totally oblivious of the rabbit outside watching them, in between her bites of fresh grass...
Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Maybe it's a family reunion. Great pic!

So glad that MrRose is okay! I think that certain jobs should be cancelled during such a heatwave ... and roofing would be one of those!!

That is a whole duckie community!!! CUTE!

Tell Mr. Rose to be REALLY careful with that heatstroke stuff. We get so many people here in AZ that die from that. It is terrible.

HUGS to you and the fur girls!

It looks like your feather friend were on a mission. They didnt want to give way at all.

The tutorial seems to be VERY helpful. Is it very hot with you now?

Myra, the picture of the Geese crossing is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Poor MrRose. That happened to my father-in-law when he was here helping with the deck last month. My husband thought he was having a heart attack, but it turned out to be heatstroke.

I love the pic of those geese. That is so funny how they are crossing right at the proper crossing. You should send it in to a contest.

Love the geese.

Thanks for the link to Material Obsession. I've ordered the books from Amazon on a friend's recommendation but didn't realise they had a blog.

Love the new header pic

love and hugs Gina xxx
