So...

 
What'cha doin?
 

Oh, building a nest...
 


 Like a really big nest?
 

A really, really big nest for lots of little ones.
 

 
You need to avoid that rock ahead of you.


Good luck on your nest. 
 Your little ones will be very comfy.

The Marriage Pen Wiper Rug

 
I am beyond thrilled to have finished The Marriage Pen Wiper Rug.

 
An Anniversary gift for friends of mine and finished in the nick of time.
The idea behind it is that of a family tree stitched in thread.
 
The kit was from Cee Rafuse of Early Style Penny Rugs on Etsy.
The aged wools and string give it an antique look and style.

Out and About


A beautiful day in the neighborhood.
 

 
All those tiny dark spots are lots and lots of cows.

 
 A lone Bison in Yellowstone.

 
Bison, Bison calves, Elk and Pronghorns grazing together...

Baskets, Berries and Leaves

 
Finally, after more than three years, Baskets, Berries and Leaves is finished.
 
 
Needle turn applique and hand quilted.

 
I used Valdani pearl cotton #8 for the hand quilting.


 
This was a 1998 BOM from Jan Patek and Alma Allen. 
I think Jan still sells it on her website.
