Bunnies, Blocks and Snakes - Building Blocks Tuesday/Wednesday

A day late and a dollar short.

I barely had time for sewing much this Tuesday, but luckily these guild blocks were super easy and quick to whip up.

I was hoping to get a little more sewing done this morning before heading off to the DMV (oh joy), but I spent the morning putting together the guild newsletter.  It doesn't take too long, but obviously, if I am sitting at the computer, I'm not sitting at my sewing machine.

In other news, we have really had some interesting experiences around here the last couple of days.  If you remember, last summer we moved from the beach to the outskirts of the suburbs of Orange County.  It is more "country" here than the beach, as evidenced by this guy startling me as I was planting some raspberry bushes near the house.

He is just a gopher snake (I hope), but you better believe I let out a good screech when I saw him slither about a foot away from where I was kneeling.  He wasn't tiny either!  About 5 feet long and looking well fed in the middle.

And then this morning, Reagan was playing with this little guy.

This poor little guy was in complete shock.  He had an injured leg - not sure if the dog did that or if he found him that way.  The girls were delighted to hold him for a few minutes, and then we had a short talk about "nature's course".   I don't want to sound completely heartless, but a vet trip and adoption were out of the question.  I put him back outside where I know the bunnies have a den and he did crawl inside. I wish him the best of luck, until he starts eating my vegetables that is!

What blocks have you been working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

Rules:

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr and Instagram pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,

Jen

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
