Geese In A Ring Swap

As you can see from my new banner I have received my geese in a ring from the swap I was in.  Mosen is shedding his black fur all over them  guarding them with his life!

Oh Cats...gotta love them!

Here is a quick pic of them all together

My Geese in a Ring from the swap

I have to decide how many more I want/need to make in order to make myself a quilt from them. Aren't they great? 
 I am so happy with them all!!
 Thanks fellow swappers for such beautiful blocks!!

I am thinking about starting a Bee group with my friend Jeannette.
 We both love the Mod Mosaic block (Oh Fransson) so we were thinking about doing that block. 
Have you participated in a swap? 
 Or an online BEE?
 If so what did you like or dislike about it? 
What things would you include and not include?

Any runners out there? 
 I can't say I like to run but I do like to walk on the treadmill or outside. 
 I found a great game/running aid. 
 Right now it is available for your iPhone with an Android version to be out sometime this month. 
 It's called
 It looks like great fun!
This is part of what they say on their website:

"You’re Runner 5. Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You've got to help your base rebuild from the ruins of civilization by collecting critical supplies while avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?"

You complete missions, and you collect items and 
when you are finished you give them to the doctors or survivors that need them. 
You actually build a base and interact with it. 
 I'm thinking this might actually get my sorry butt exercising on non-Zumba days! 
Anyone out there already using this app?

I've done a couple of swaps ... they're fun! I've never done a Bee before, though. The app sounds like fun ... I'll have to recommend it to my kids!!! They *love* zombie stuff and running. :)

i love those flying geese in a circle blocks - they are worth every bit of time (and bad words) that go into them...

Beautiful blocks and cat. You asked about bees. I have participated in several. I will send you an email about my experiences.

I've done one swap, and it was fun! Mosen cracks me up - it's not a quilt until it has cat hair all over it, lol! Gorgeous blocks. I used to run all the time, loved it until my feet went bad - sounds like a fun app!

...silly cat photos? What!? Yes, I'll follow just for those! I've got some kitties on my blog, too, though I'm not sure they do much that's silly (at least not for my camera). So yes, definitely more of those! ;D

Thank you for the chance to win such adorable charm packs.

Love love the Geese in a ring block sure wish I would have found that as a swap, I would have jumped on it! Yes I have done many block swaps and right now addicted to row by row swaps. Love to have quilts made by my 'friends'.

So good to see. I was a part of this swap also, round 1 and 4. I'll follow you to see what you do about these blocks.
