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.

A View From My Window

Sharing some photos of Elk
after a late winter snow storm last week.

So happy to see my first
Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel of the season.

Winter wasn't that harsh this year
except for unending snow in February...

  but you still never know if these little ones will 
emerge from their long hibernation.

I recognize her from last year..

Odd shaped nose and scars on her head and back.

Those nails grow long during their hibernation.

Flying in Circles

Flying in Circles...
A quilt I designed and started way back in 2005.

Needle turn applique using
 vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics.

I finally got around to hand quilting it this month.
I used the big stitch and natural linen thread.

I still need to stitch the binding on...
I'll use the red fabric that you see on the outer border.
