Guess where I went today????
To our Zoo--
and they tried to put me in a cage and keep me--
but I told them I was needed here in blogland--
so they let me go!!!!

Tuesdays during October this year--
it is just $5 for the day for FL residents--
( they extended it--usually it is during the month of Sept--
but everyone was a bit busy with Irma then!!)
so Frannie and I took off and went--
we were worried though cause there was an 80% chance of rain--
but we make it --before that happened--
there was 2 things I wanted to do today--that I had not done yet--
one was the train ride and the other was checking out the petting zoo--
look who I found in the Petting Zoo--
Do you like my hair do--???
Here is a closer look???
now wait--what about mine--
I have added some decorations to my hair do????
Wooooo--wait a minute--
I think you should forget those guys and take my photo!!!

Hey--there--what about a kiss????
I seen camels on the train ride--
did not know they had any--so was the first time I had seen them--
this one was really cute with his faces he make at us as we chugged by!!

Wonder what this bird is hiding???
Ohh--he it's just his spoon-bill!!!!

and I love the deep coral color of these birds!!!
Hey, Lady are you looking at us?????
and this one on the far right was funny--he wanted to get to the other side of that bird--
so he just 'ducked' under him and kept going--!!!!

Well--if you aren't busy next Tuesday came and join me at the Zoo--

               ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI

Oh my little Jelly roll--
you have been rolling along in my stash--
for lets see--
and let me count the days, no weeks, years--
I have seen you rolling around in that Christmas pile--
I really don't know--

but I bet it has been at least 5 years????
so why hasn't Di done anything with you???

It might be cause --
your green is rather a 'bright limey green' and --
you have "pink"  in those prints--
wait a minute, doesn't Di like pink--
like isn't that her favorite color??????

humm--oh I see--it is her favorite color 11 months out of the year--
just not December--she is a traditionalist during that month--
just red and green, hu???

Well--Di needed a quiet project to sew on this morning ---
so look at what she did???
she cut the strips in half and then sewed
 and sewed them into 3 strip-strips--
so now what is she going to make with this????
Good Question?????????????

with a day to spare!!!
Got the wool block finished for Sept-
Now --some of the details are not here yet--
cause they will be buttons--once the blocks are all done and into to a quilt top--

and I was wondering how the first 9 blocks looked all together--
so I tacked them up on the design board--
remember the first row was spring--
second row is summer--
and the third row is fall--
bet you can guess what the fourth row will be????
yep--winter--you are all 'smart' people!!!
the first block for winter comes out on Friday, I believe!!!

Now I will get back to hand quilting the Halloween mystery wall hanging--
I almost have the center block done--
and the socks are coming along really nicely now--
am to the heel part on them--
will take photo soon and show you my progress!!!

                                             I want that all black kitten--Please!!!!

First is the finish--of course--
got this wool block done--
now to get the second one done by Friday--
before the Oct block comes out!!!!

and a package in the mail--
I had some credit at E-quilter that I had to use by Oct 5th--
so this is what jumped into the cart--
I got a yard and half of the swan fabric and the blue one with the butterflies on it--
was thinking of backing with them--
the grey one is just a really nice shade of grey for the  stash--
and --
these 2--were on sale and I got a yard of each--
not realizing that they are flannels--hummmm!!!
that's ok--they are still cute!!!

Now for the "sorry"
one commenter thought that in my post yesterday--
I did not sound grateful--
oh my--
that made me cry for sure--
I am soooo very grateful--I realize that lots and lots of folks lost homes and personal belongings in the recent hurricanes, here and in Texas and other places--
I am grateful to still have my apartment, running water--even it we couldn't use it for a few days--
but when trees are lost and beaches are gone that will never come back--and animals will now suffer--cause of the pollution in the river--I hurt and I am sad--!!!
and I just wanted to share the dock struggles with all of you as you know that is where alot of my photos come from and where I find my 'calm inner self"--
So on an even 'sadder' note for me and those other tenants,
 who spent lots of time on the dock--
they have CLOSED--the dock entirely now--put boards across the ramp entrance even--
I pray it will only be temporary--( especially for Russell who loved that dock and spent nearly all day down there or on the beach area--)
 but this may be permanent--we will see--
