What’s Happening?

These little keets (baby guinea fowl, about two days old here), were hatched out by one of our ducks if you can believe. Mama duck decided to sit on a clutch of the guinea hens eggs and here we are. A fifth keet was hatched a day later. It’s a cruel joke that they turn into one of the ugliest birds on Earth, not to mention unpleasant and loud. Why do we have them you ask? Well they do eat a lot of bugs, ticks especially, and for some still unknown reason my husband loves them, grrr. Thank goodness these have found a good home elsewhere.


I’ve finished my quilt for the Good ‘Ol Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. I hope my swap partner likes it. I can’t reveal who it’s going to but I will say that I had a hard time telling what her tastes were because her blog was in another language. The Google blog translator was less than illuminating.

I think I like working in this small size (about 15″ square). I’ve got a few other ideas sketched out and am anxious to get some decent sewing time. It’s a huge relief that our heat wave has finally broken and the sewing room is really calling to me.
