Spring has arrived here but first, I want to share some photos of our very snowy Winter. Snow is not uncommon around here in Winter but this year we did get more than average for our 2500ft. elevation. A lot of people had roofs collaspe. Rivers and creeks ran high when everything began to melt. There is still snow on the higher mountains around us. Enjoy the show…I will be sharing Spring photos soon.
Late Autumn/Early Winter
Many times I pull ideas from nature when I am making a quilt or some other sewing project.
Summer Garden Quilt
When I saw this fabric collection I knew that I had to have it.
The colors are so fun and remind me of nature. I love the play of insects incorporated into the design.
Hot Off the Press
Then I meditate on what stitch pattern to use. I am a hand quilter so I enjoy personalizing the stitch pattern too.
The Leaf Stitch
A Trellis Border
In between watering the garden and trying to keep the chickens cool – er, I hope to have this completed by the end of summer.
This was taken one morning in early June 2015. It was just one of those moments that you had to capture with your camera.
