Rufous...


Hold that pose...


Turn around and show us
 your beautiful feathers on your back...


Spread those feathers...


Yikes...
I don't know what that pose is...


Wings down...


Preening...
 As all females like to do...

Finally, No Seriously...


I finally got around to machine quilting
 Sue Spargo's BOM Fresh Cut from 2017. 
It was a challenge to say the least on my sewing machine. 
Easy free motion quilting I thought...
Sure lets machine quilt a heavy wool quilt 
in the heat of the summer, 
upstairs in my sewing room with no ac...
easy.
 I do like the binding.


 Some closeups of a few of the
 blocks when I first started this quilt.





Thanks for all the comments on my bear.
I haven't seen him since, not that I'm looking for him.
It's been pretty hot so I imagine he's gone
 to a higher elevation where it's cooler.

'Bear' With Me...


I was walking out back behind
the house a few days ago...


I had a 'oh no' moment.
Actually said the words out loud...
But in a whisper.


A Black Bear moving out of the brushes...


Black bears range in coloring from
 black to cinnamon...
But I digress...


He's moving to my right as I move
 backwards and to the left towards the house...


A far piece to walk oh so slow...


He's shedding his winter coat
in case your wondering why his fur is a mess.


One last look from him as he 
moved slowly away from me and 
back into the woods.

Whew!

Flying in Circles


I finally finished sewing the binding on my quilt...
Flying in Circles. 


Speaking of flying...


 One of my favorite birds...


Western Tanagers...


Even the females like this one...


Have vivid green and yellow feathers...


The males are the stand outs, though...


 A stunning creation of color in nature...

Life...


Quiet days with the wildlife...

  
My Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels...


  Have emerged from their long hibernation.


Way more than I expected...
which makes me happy.


There's a genuine innocence about these little ones...


  Soothes the soul...
during these difficult times.
