Sewing and Birds

Evening All, been a while since I posted on my blog. I had been busy sewing and creating a mess in my studio! Am doing a block swap in the fall, for a retreat I am hosting. It is a group I belong too, so was working figuring and deciding on my block. This is the one I plan to make everyone who is swapping out. It is called Mellineum Chain out of a BHG magazine for quilters.

Now today while hubby and I were at the kitchen table having coffee this afternoon
all these starlings or black birds came out of nowhere and landed in the back yard and the cornfiled below. Check them out so many, reminded me of the movie the Birds!!
They chatter so much they do not hear you when try to yell or make noise to startle them. They hang in the trees looking like black leaves in them.

Patty Pat, that is not a flock of birds, it is an infestation! Holy smokes!
Love the block you chose. It looks really hard to make but then when I looked at it closer, looks do-able even for mediocre me. It really looks cool! Will be interested to see how more of them look together.

What a pretty block!!! The pictures from your yard look like a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie!
