New Pets

It is starting to get cooler at night but not enough that we have to close our windows. So, we are still able to hear the loon as he/she leaves our pond and makes its trek to the lake. A neighbours rooster, anothers dog, birds starting their day and the occassional passing vehicle as people go to work are our morning sounds.
In addition to the loon, our pond is also home to a crane although we haven't been able to get close enough to see what kind. We are hoping that when migration starts that a few ducks will also find the still water a welcome rest spot.
We are also hoping that a couple of beavers will make their way here as the dam needs repairing.
Yesterday, we discovered we have some unwelcome house pets. When our tv satelite dish was installed, there was a small space left open near the roof. This has been discovered by some bats.
Now, we did want to attract these creatures because they do eat vast amounts of bugs but we wanted them to live in a bat house or some other accommodation. We are going to have to educate ourselves about bat habits so we can figure out how to move them.
Thank you for you kind comments about my blog.
Today I have a free block pattern for you. I call it train windows because it reminds me of the lighted windows you used to see on the passing trains as you waited by the tracks. It is a simple block: 4-3 1/2" squares of fabric (great for a scrappy) sewn together to make a block. One 6 1/2 x 3 1/2 strip of fabric sewn to bottom of the block and a 9 1/2 by 3 1/2 strip sewn to the left side.
Happy sewing. Let me know if you would like the complete pattern.
