Hiss. :)



I hope you enjoyed this extra block. It had A LOT of pieces!! Fabric snakes are really the only snakes that I like. :) Before we got married, I told my hub we could never have a reptile as a pet. It's in our imaginary prenup. haha! #truestory :) After I once found a snake in my house, when I lived alone! I'm still traumatized by it. A little harmless garden snake, but I didn't know that at the time. All I saw was a little snake that coiled up and HISSED at me with it's tiny forked tongue waving. It still gives me chills. I can't. Ugh. *shaking the memories away* 

Back to fabricky things! Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a great weekend and I'll meet you back here in a couple of days with another quilt block tutorial.

Until then Happy Stitching!
