Collector Series and Wildlife

It's very hot still, like the rest of our country, trying not to look at every cloud in the sky as a puff of smoke, so I've been appliqueing another block from the Collector Series, think I only have three to go.  I doubt that I will put all the blocks together any time soon since I have the blocks pinned on the walls all over the house.  Actually found a duplicate because I pinned one in the laundry room and forgot I had made it.  Glad it was one of the more simple designs.  Instead there are two large prim quilts waiting that I really want to machine quilt, soon.

The female pronghorn, you can see her eyelashes.  I'm trying out a new lens that a friend loaned me.  Try it, see if you like it.  See if you can use it.  I see her eyelashes and I'm far away, up above on the drive looking down to the lower meadow. 

Yes, I like the lens, I also like having a washing machine and it's down to one cycle, but then that other voice says, who needs more than one cycle, you could go years with one cycle, true and I would miss all those pictures that need to be taken more than a washing machine.  Just me and that voice, thinking.

  1. Nice photo and good close up, no blur or contrasty colors, so I would say it is a nice lens to use and much better than a washing machine, lol.

  2. Because I have the blogs on my IPad I can stretch the pictures out and see all of her eyelashes. The photos are looking wonderful, so are your blocks.

  6. Great pictures Nancy, I would like those eyelashes.
    I didn't realise that you could use more than one programme on the washing machine..........
    Hope the weather cools a little, we have been seeing the devastation caused by the weather in the US on our news here in England... looks awful.
    Have a fun week. Hugs, Angela.
