Feral Hog Down and One-Flower Wednesday

Yes!  Our hunting was finally successful.  We had put the game camera out and saw that they were coming to the blinds in the morning so this morning we got up and there they were.  I killed this big hog this morning at 8:30 am.  Reminding you that feral hogs in Texas are out of control.  They tear up the land, destroy property, and will kill the whitetail deer.  There is no hunting season for feral hogs since they are considered predators.  Here’s a photo.

And I made these little flowers while we’ve been on the road.  

There's a "make-do" flower amongst them. I keep saying over and 

over but it bears repeating, “I just love these hexie flowers.”  Here 

are my flowers for this week.  Thank you, Karen for keeping us 

on-task with our flowers.

We’re on our way back to El Paso on Wednesday (today) so I’ll 

catch you later on the “flip side.”

That is all.

Wow! Shooting a huge hog and making dainty little are one amazing woman. I love your hexie flowers. What size hexagons are you using for them?

sister outlaws said...

You are certainly a woman of diverse talents! You're amazing.

Needled Mom said...

Great shot! That is one less causing problems. Do you butcher them afterwards?

What is a make do flower? They all look great to me. That is such a great car project.

Have a safe trip back.

MMM.. hog steak, sounds like Bar-b-que time.

Carla said...

Nice shot! I pity anyone who messes with your fabric stash ; )

Kari @ The Purple Quiltapotamus said...

Wow - fabric and guns....! Quite the combination. ;) Your hexies are beautiful.

And I have to ask what you do with a beast like that when it is dead? Just wondering! Lol

Mrs.Pickles said...

lovely flowers and congrats on getting the hog! I to am wondering what you do with it after?

My Sister Made Me Do It.... said...

Love those little flowers. The "make-do" flowers are almost like an "I-spy" type block....."I spy one petal that is different....."
I am glad you got the hog....Barbara just posted a story about there being feral hogs in Ruidoso Downs that are attacking pets! It's unfortunate that they are not good for meat....I remember the one you all tried to have butchered and the meat was terrible! Glad you are coming home!

I love your flowers.
