Every year, about when the daylilies bloom, Mama Deer brings her latest addition/s to the back yard to romp and learn how to eat daylilies. That's o.k. because they're on 2 edges of the perimeter and there is plenty for everyone. Most years there is only 1 fawn and I don't have a big problem getting pictures, but with 2 all they want to do it run, run, and run some more. Mama did look a bit weary.

My red color study block is back home! I think everyone did a great job. It's difficult to get a good picture of some colors and red seems to be one of them. I have a garden window in the kitchen that faces west, so I can usually get a decent shot there in the a.m. before the sun gets around to that side of the house.

I finished working on the last block for the red color study. This was Donna's block. She is making a family quilt, and this block will represent her grandmother who's favorite color is red, and who likes gypsys and spanish dancers. I did the dancer on felt with sequins, the bead flower to the left of that and the seam between. Then I did the seam below the dancer and the S shaped thing beside that. Then I did the herringbone stitching with detatched chain, straight stitches, and beads in the patch to the right of the dancer. Finally, I added the buttons to the large fan at the bottom of the square.
