My Niece, Lauren, came to visit the other day. I was sort of boring because I was entering data into the computer so she decided to head outside to take some pictures. I love her perspective. Beautiful.
Speaking of knitting. The other evening my dear friend Brenda and I got together for a knit night. She surprised me with this beautiful shawl that she knit for me. A treasure.
As I was photographing the wild roses and thinking about grandma I swear this rose was smiling.
To Grandma with Love. I miss you.
Dragonflies. I have tried to photograph them but they always seem to be on the move. Then to my amazement this happened...
This little critter, along with his elusive partner in crime, stole all the Hazel nuts off our trees. They will be well fed through the winter.
I then found a feather pattern that looked like it would work. I enlarged the pattern, changed a few of the plumes to fit the area, traced one of the patterns onto a sheet protector and placed the feather on the quilt top.
I love how the feathers gracefully fill the spaces around the spools.
Audio books. I enjoy reading but since I haven't figured out how to read a book and quilt at the same time I listen to audio books. I have access to thousands of books online through British Columbia Libraries. I can download and transfer books to a portable device such as iPhone or iPad. I'm currently listening to True Betrayals by Nora Roberts. Next up is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. What books do you enjoy?
