Call Me Crazy blocks 9-12 are done :)
Four more 6" blocks to add to this ongoing project offered by Gay at Sentimental Stitches and each one is a mini challenge.
When the blocks are set by side the look is very reminiscent of the original below and that's why I wanted to participate in this fun block of the week.
I changed the little display in my sewing space. I don't think I've ever hung three minis with orange as the focus.
*Trail Cam News*
After one unsuccessful try, Connie and I then fastened the trail cam to a tree in the woods and after two weeks we got these photos:
First up: a squirrel . . .
then a deer . . .
then two foxes . . .
And finally a wild turkey. Not bad, huh? So for the next 2 weeks the cam is strapped to our boat rack down near the river and we're hoping for some new surprises!
But just the other day I watched as one deer fell through thin ice into the river. My initial reaction was "Oh, no!" but it managed to get up and out. Whew!
This hand-made wool mat caught my eye at the antiques shop last week and I had to go back and buy it.
Here's a detail of the center. Wool strips in various forms--rolled, pleated, folded and even gathered--are stitched together with a heavy-duty thread. The piece is over an inch thick. I love the handwork, don't you?
That's all for this week. It was 16 deg this morning and I am so ready for warmer weather. Please send some my way :)
