WIP Wednesday: Geese Everywhere


Good morning! It’s a crisp fall day here in Wisconsin, which means one thing: There are Canadian geese in our backyard. And that means one thing: Little “gifts” left all over our yard by the Canadian geese. Ughghggh.

They love hanging out under our apple tree. I’m not sure if they’re eating the fallen apples or the bugs that are attracted to the fallen apples, but either way, they’re constantly waddling over to check things out.

My dog chases them off on the regular, but they seem to have learned that she goes back inside eventually and venture their way back as soon as she’s gone. (She’s 13.5 years old and still loves to chase the geese away. She’s the best.)

But this has all inspired me to work on some much cleaner, prettier geese inside the house. I’ve got a fun little holiday-themed project underway that I should be able to show you in the next few weeks.

My doggy won’t need to chase these guys away. : )

Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!

1. Link up any blog post or Instagram photo from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. To link an Instagram photo, click the “Add Your Link” button below, then click on the Instagram icon at the bottom of the screen that pops up. You should then be able to select any of your recent Instagram photos. Where it says “Link,” use the URL of your Instagram feed (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/lee.a.heinrich). Please hashtag your IG post #wipwednesday.
3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
4. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    We have those darn geese year round! The hiking trails are an obstacle course! Fortunately they do leave and try out other ponds for a few days, sometimes a week or two. And then. . . they're' Baaack!! I wish someone would take them off the endangered list so some of them could bite the bullet!! (Pun intended!!) Oh, well!! Your quilt geese are much nicer and fun to watch the quilt evolve!

    You have such a big, beautiful back yard, Lee. When the Canada geese were endangered we loved seeing them. Now they are so common that it seems we see them near every pond we pass here in Ohio. Your indoor geese are beautiful. They look very serene.

    Thanks for hosting WIP Wednesday. I appreciate it.

    Oh, the Canadian Geese leave their not so small presents at the beach where we go swimming… Ugh.. But the indoor geese, love them!!! Looking forward to see what you will make!
