    debbyg received the quilt I made her last week but can't post pictures. She sent me the pictures today, since I had forgotten to take a photo of the finished quilt, so here they are. I made a 2-sided quilt, and perfect timing, today is Canada Day! Happy birthday, Canucks!

    Wow! That is brilliant! Debby you just raised the bar even higher!
    Bilben, there is something seriously wrong with me. (But you already knew that, didn't you?) I didn't realize you were in Canada. So, yes, happy Canada Day! Whooo hoooo!!!! I think I'll join your celebration by barbecuing a moose!

    Vanogay, I will share. Pull up a chair. It might take a while before it's done, so perhaps we should have some cocktails.

    Bilben, that is one of the most creative RWB flags I've ever seen! Lucky Debbyg. I like Canada's flag, too! Happy Canada Day or whatever it's called. I love stars and have never seen so many different fabrics with stars on it that I DON'T have, lol! Just so much originality on this board -- that's what makes it fun. I just got back from a big quilt show in Indiana and it was combined with a Hudson Car show. Did you know they made cars in the most glorious colors? Said if you wanted a black car, buy a Ford! LOL! We're going to TX on Wednesday so talk to ya'll when I get back unless I can sneak on at my DSIL's house on her computer.

    I would have sworn I posted a picture of the DQ I received from NanaVal, but I don't see it. I wonder where it went. Maybe off in cyberspace? Maybe in the wrong thread? Anyway, I just love it and here is a picture!!

    Totally Off Topic - I love sparrows. They are so tiny and yet there is a life in them. I just love them. That said, I don't know why, but I keep finding dead baby birds. I found one a couple of weeks ago and wrapped him up so something wouldn't eat him. Today, I found two that were barely out of their shells. They had no feathers. First I saw one, and then the second which, unfortunately, someone stepped on. On the other side of the complex I saw one of the residents who was very busy planting flowers. I walked over and complimented him and then I told him about the baby birds and asked if he would mind burying them. I told him I just didn't want to put their tiny bodies in the trash. He kindly agreed and dug a hole. Then he asked me if I would like to say a prayer! So I did. And that was that. I felt that all was well with the cycle of their tiny little lives.

    OK. I'm weird. I think I'll go make a Lean Pocket for dinner since hubby is working overtime again. Over and out.

    I agree with you Krystna and WandaLou _ I always say a little prayer for a dead animal as well. In the spring, it seems I see more dead animals on the roads - they always lose to the cars. I try not to get too upset, but it doesn't always work. Don't ever be upset with yourself if you have a tender heart.

    Krystyna, Wanda Lou, and Vanogay, that is a wonderful and lovely thing to do. It's as the song says...His Eye is on the Sparrow.

    Cogito, your sneak peek is intriguing. Wow Gaijin is in Japan, I had not realized that.

    OOPS, my secret is out! I have been known by that moniker since I was a wee one.

    Bilben that is a very creative flag quilt - the stars remind of fly fishing flies - love the variety of embelishments for the stripes.

    Cogito - thanks for the sneak peek - can't wait until Gaijin posts a photo of the rest of it.

    Love that a prayer was said for the lost little sparrow - I feed a variety of birds and get a lot of joy out of watching them come into the feeders - I'm hopeful that one day they will start to nest in some of the trees we planted several years ago.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    We lived in Colorado for many years. We finally moved from the country into the city - a subdivision set just outside of the city, but on the fringes of a golf course. There were no trees. We planted some, but that was the one thing I missed the most - the birds in my back yard. Put in strawberry bushes down close to the golf course property for the birds, put in bird houses, but for the 4 years we lived there, saw very few birds. Here in Tennessee, we're enjoying our birds immensely. Put in some evergreens as well as deciduous trees and have the birds all year round! Love watching them - course, that's why I'm a bird watcher.
