Midnight Riders

I sent my SAQA auction quilt off yesterday,
This one was fun to make.
The background fabric I hand painted.
The horses come from a commercial cotton.
Silk scrapes made up the rest
plus some beads and copper metallic thread.
I can almost hear them 
Hoofs pounding across the mesa
in the dark of the night.
Spooked by a wolf or a wild cat maybe.

Marilyn Lee's photo of a chickadee is perfect.
Have a quiet and peaceful Sunday,

Cedar Waxwings

Surprise visitors Saturday.
I had only seen one wax wing previously at
Cedar Ridge. Imagine my surprise when a small flock
showed up to eat the cedar berries on our tree 
I got out my camera and started to record them.
I will make a quilt in the future.
In much brighter colors.
Nature surrounds me here on the farm.

Van Gogh

Van Gogh like.
PAC sponsored a showing of Loving Vincent last night.
I have always loved Van Gogh and Monet.
The impressionist era is how I see the world.
