... of the Deer Kind
Yesterday evening, as I was watering and checking for damage, I got to thinking it had been a long time since I had seen any deer and the lack of teeth marks on my new plants might be evidence that they have adopted a new route to the river. (... pause for a pat on the back...)
I moved on down the driveway a bit to hose down the impatiens in the big pot. As I turned to go back up the hill I saw a big, beautiful doe staring at me from the area I had just been watering! Where did she come from? How come I never heard her coming? In my surprise I turned toward her with hose in hand and she scampered away.
So, what else was I doing on the hottest day of the year? Adding more rounds to this:
The pattern is a variation of "Beach Party" from More Nickel Quilts. When I look at it from across the studio the colors remind me of Skittles in a bowl so I'm going to call it "Candy Dish." My design wall is too narrow to hold it all so I'm now working on one side at a time.
It's Friday, so I'm hooking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
