Persistent Visitor

Bullwinkle has been hanging around--he will be long gone when moose hunting season rolls around--even though he's not legal!!

This Martha Washington geranium is sitting on my front porch on the west side.  She started out on the south and wasn't doing too well.  Look at her now!!

Design Wall Monday

It's back up--Scrappy Trip Around the World from Bonnie Hunter's pattern that started life as 46 Ugly FQs.  Had to make another block--and I don't think it will play well with the group.  It is still here in the house, not on the wall.  Here's hoping!  I would like to get this put together and quilted in this life time!

Birds and bears and....oh, my!

Our little neighborhood is on bear watch...I check around before closing the door and getting too exposed before dashing to the studio!  Last week a mama brown bear and two large cubs were helping them selves to my neighbors trash bags.

Of course I have no bear pictures, but this teenage robin was very cooperative.

Our weather has been wonderful, so yesterday a motorcycle trip was taken to Princess Lodge in Cooper Landing--I love their KPL salad!  Then friends from church invited us to dinner--sushi and fellowship were both great.  Hmmm.  I wasn't in the kitchen yesterday.....

This lovely was found in the "back 40" and transplanted to my flower bed.

Design Wall Monday

This is on my wall--and there are two more rows of blocks finished that won't fit--it is a queen size BQ quilt from Maple Island.  I need another quilt for my bed like I need another hole in my head, but I fell in love with this huge poppy print and "had" to have it!  DH loved it too, (which helped--he's my enabler!)
