I Can't Believe I Won!

And the winner is......ME?
Remember in October, I entered one of my quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival?

Well, I won a prize!  With over 600 entries, I really did not think I would win any of the giveaways. (and I'm still visiting the other quilt sites) So, now I have a new project.  This isn't the kind of fabric I would pick out for myself.  I'm more into the novelty, hand-dyed Batiks, or southwest, but I'm starting to like this design fabric.
2 packs of 10-inch "Delighted!" squares by Riley Blake 

21 squares in each pack
What to do with these 10-inch squares....hmmm, I'll have to get back to you on this project.  This is a good challenge for me and I do have a couple of ideas.

Wet Feather Woes
It rained most of Thursday night and part of Friday.  We could use more, but we will take what we can get, right?

I never gave much thought to the wild birds until I started watching this little one trying to clean and dry its feathers.
Boy! Am I wet!
Let's see if fluffing out the feathers will dry me out..
Okay, maybe cleaning them will work...
Not fast enough - let's shake some feathers........
and don't forget the tail...
Oops! forgot to air out this wing
Wait!  was that a raindrop?
Well, I guess I'll wait until the sun comes out.....
