paper piecings

DID YOU KNOW.....................

A new born giraffe measures about 6 feet.
A giraffe is one of the animals who is born with a horn.
Every step a giraffe takes is 15 feet in length.
A large male giraffe can eat up to 100 pounds of food in a single day. A giraffes age can be calculated from its spots, as the darker the spots, the older the giraffe.

Hippopotamuses love water, which is why the Greeks named them the "river horse." Hippos spend up to 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes to keep their massive bodies cool under the hot African sun. Hippos are graceful in water, good swimmers, and can hold their breath underwater for up to five minutes. However, they are often large enough to simply walk or stand on the lake floor, or lie in the shallows. Their eyes and nostrils are located high on their heads, which allows them to see and breathe while mostly submerged.Hippos also bask on the shoreline and secrete an oily red substance, which gave rise to the myth that they sweat blood. The liquid is actually a skin moistener and sunblock that may also provide protection against germs.

monkey paper piecing

I just love these little monkeys.
Did you know...............
The tip of a spider monkey's tail can support the weight of his entire body. Monkeys never catch cold. There are about 125 different species of monkeys.

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles

Did you know........Bubbles, being a phenomenom of nature, have always been around, but the sport of playing with bubbles didn't really exist before soap. The Pear Soap Company, in England, was responsible for the 19th century popularization of both soap and bubble blowing. Bubble toys were largely limited to bubble pipes until the middle of the 20th century
