Deer and Mercer Lane

A few pictures to share today. The deer are two different bucks that I'm thrilled made it thru hunting season, the first pic of the deer and wish you could see him better is missing part of his antler, broke it in a fight, he's sweet, he runs with a fawn that he has taken under his wing. The fawn lost her mother earlier this year to a predator I guess, she had a dislocated hip and would limp and she had been coming to the property with this bad leg for several years. She raised twin fawns every year. I'm afraid I don't know what happened to the other fawn. The other deer is just such a beautiful buck, he stays back, but will come up to drink when I put warm water out. Hope I find these antlers when they are shed, my husband, Jim, when he was well, use to make buttons for me from them. Now I like to display them in the house to remind me of such beautiful creatures.

And to add some quilting news, yea, I finished the top of Mercer Lane, will machine quilt it next weekend after I receive a blue backing fabric from Sue Spargo's Terra line.

  1. Mercer Lane is so marvelous Nancy! Sue's designs are so distinctive and unlike anyone elses. You did a beautiful job with this one. Are you doing next years? I wanted to do it so badly, but just couldn't justify it with everything else I have around here. If I concentrate really hard on getting lots of projects finished this next year I'll "gift" myself with the one for the following year.

    Thank God at least two of your "friends" made it through hunting season. I just can't understand how anyone can shoot something so beautiful unless they must in order to survive.

  2. I'm always delighted and amazed that you "know" your wildlife so well. They really seem to be personal friends of yours! Thank you for sharing their wonderful presence with us.

  3. Your Mercer Lane is just wonderful. I'm still on the fence -- but teetering heavily -- about signing up for next year.
