    Here I am, happily doing one block after the other as I have time and the other day I started on one called, "Buzzard's Roost".

    It kinda made me think for a moment as I am working from the scrap bucket. Well I figured I could find some road kill fabric of some dead something, hahahahahh, I couldn't find any so I used a live deer insert for the middle pic. I was just being silly I guess.

    It's just the same when I first heard the name,"Intercourse Pennsylvania" I think I almost choked. hahahahhaha

    Job is a biblical story. He had all sorts of bad things happen to him.
