Let the Fun Begin-Collect the Clues and Win 60 Fat Quarters!!!

As the members of my Yahoo Group know, I do love surprises and giving away prizes. I decided it should be no different here so I will begin a new game called “Collect the Clues” with this blog. It will be a sort of scavenger hunt in search of an image. In each blog, I will give you a clue to the image and at a set future date, the first person who emails me the answer to what the image is and where it was specifically found will win 60 Fat Quarters of fabric from one of my previous fabric collections!!!!

Clue #1 – Come on in and sit awhile and rest from your trip on the internet superhighway at my new home.

The bird photo above is a picture of the three little baby birds that have been resting at the top of my front porch. I’ve had a bird’s eye view (sorry, couldn’t resist it) of their birth and development. I have really been fascinated watching the mother bird return to feed them and keep them in line. And she does keep them in line! They have grown amazingly fast and in recent days I’ve watched them hang on to the edge of the nest and try their wings. I expect they will be leaving in a few days. I will be sad to see them leave. I’ve kind of taken them under my wing, but I know the UPS man will be thrilled. You see, the Mama and Daddy bird have been standing watch over the nest sitting on the house gutter. If anyone tries to come to our front porch, they dive bomb them and flutter their wings in an effort to shoo them away. So why am I sharing these photos with you? It is just a reminder to notice the wonderful world around us. 
Until next time, may all your points be perfect

    Aren’t birds wonderful to watch.? We have a wren nest hanging in our carport and they seem to have at least 3 sets of little ones a season. They sing and carry one. Come back every year.

    Will watch for your next clue.

    I’m not sure I understand the clue, but I’ll keep checking…maybe it will come to me.

    What fun! I have an idea already, but I’m probably way off the mark *LOL*
    What beautiful bird pictures. Here we have Housemartins with lots of little ones…

    Hi Carol,
    At work there is a fire alarm thing-a-ma-jig outside our side entrance. Amazingly, every year the nest appears (behind a very small space between the alarm and the building). I guess the small space is nice and cozy for the little baby birds, but it’s always fun to see the mother fly in and out tending to her new family… and then shortly after you see the little guys appear and fly first to the ground and then off and away they go. OK, I have Clue #1 – hmmm, no idea at this point, but this should be fun!
