after a late winter snow storm last week.

Whew...

  
So happy to see my first
Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel of the season.


Winter wasn't that harsh this year
except for unending snow in February...


  but you still never know if these little ones will 
emerge from their long hibernation.


I recognize her from last year..


Odd shaped nose and scars on her head and back.


Those nails grow long during their hibernation.


Whew...

Flying in Circles


Flying in Circles...
A quilt I designed and started way back in 2005.


Needle turn applique using
 vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics.


I finally got around to hand quilting it this month.
I used the big stitch and natural linen thread.


I still need to stitch the binding on...
I'll use the red fabric that you see on the outer border.

Bighorn Sheep

 

2020 brings the Bighorns...


 to the property for the first time this year.


I've been watching this battle worn Ram for years.


He has an old scar on his face that I recognize.


He was here with a large herd of Rams and little ones.


Those horns are massive as is he...


The little ones...


are so cute...


with their tiny, tiny horns.


Striking a beautiful pose to end my post...

Thinking of my friends in  Australia...
lives lost...
millions of wildlife lost...
property lost...
keep Australia in your prayers.
