Joyful...

 
A joyful sight is when...


you can watch the smallest...

 
of creatures...

 
spend an hour...

 
preening...

 
cleaning...
 
 
removing parasites...

 
and drying their tiny feathers.

 
She's ready for flight...

Twixt Garden Gates

 
Working on a small primitive project...
Dahlia Wall Hanging

 
From Jan Patek's Twixt Garden Gates, 1997
I favor these older designs from Jan.


 
Hard to see, but there is bright orange embroidery surrounding
 the flowers which sets off the design. 
I'm going to hand quilt it with linen thread
and then add the embroidery.

 
This is the Twixt Garden Gates quilt on the back
of the booklet.  I love the 'hugeness'
of the applique.

2017 Montana Fires



Over 760,000 acres of land have burned so far
 in Montana this summer...
A catastrophic natural disaster with no end in sight.

It breaks my heart...

Hmmmm......

 
I'm thinking you shouldn't eat that...
 
 
No really....
It's too dry, you could choke.
 

Don't eat that!!!!


I'm serious...
 

 
Don't eat that!!!!
I'm yelling now!
 
 
 She ate it...
 
She choked...
 
She coughed...
 
She's okay.
