I decided to add big stars to the quilt and another triangle at the bottom for balance. I just started to applique the stars tonight. By the time I add the borders it should turn out to be a nice size lap quilt, about 40 x 30.
If you look very close to the center of this pic, you can see a female elk or cow as they are called. About as close as I can get to her without scaring her.
She's left the herd to give birth to her baby or calf, maybe twins since she looks very pregnant. She's been staying in the lower meadow and laying at the top of the hill that is beside the house. I would have never seen her, but the other night I could hear the sound of the Sidney running from door to door, window to window, the pitter patter of those paws on the floor at a quick speed. Bailey and I sat on the bed, me thinking, should I get up and go see what she sees. Bailey thinking, way to comfortable to get up. I finally got up and got a quick glimpse of her and then the pics when I went outside for a walk along the drive.
