I finished the applique on the Watermelon and able to just snap this pic this morning before a thunder storm blew in, two waves with lots of rain, so that was good. Yesterday was warm and I thought for awhile about weed eating those weeds in the background, then I read about a man in Idaho who went to pick up a stick in the aisle of the garden center in Walmart and it was a rattlesnake. He was bit and had to receive the antivenom. His hand will be permanently disfigured. I learned several years ago from experience and sheer luck, during rattler season, never pick up a stick, always wear boots during snake season, even it your feet get hot, look where you step, on several hiking trips with Jim, was always the one that almost stepped on a rattler. I remember on one hike, I took my boots off to cross a creek, on the other side before I could put my boots back on, a rattler, inches from my foot. I no longer care if my boots get wet. So that being said, thinking of having to put boots on, heavy jeans, just kept on stitching.
Just like this picture that didn't really come out, I didn't give the camera enough time to do it's thing, but like the rays of sun and shade on Bailey.
