I finished the Bow Tucks Tote Bag this week, and just love how it turned out. I will definitely make this one again:
I also finished my Christmas table runner, but I forgot to take a completed photo before sending it off to our County Fair. Here is a shot of it being quilted:
And I just have to mention…there was a LOT of stitching in the ditch in the quilting I did. I used some new rulers I purchased a month ago or so, and I LOVE them! They made the ditching go so much easier, and it looks better too. They are by Quilters Apothecary. Not affiliated…just a pleased customer.
And a photo. An extreme close-up shot of a white-faced meadowhawk dragonfly. This is a little dragonfly, only about 1″ long. She’s standing on a spirea bloom, and I loved the kind of confetti effect.
Photography continues to take up a lot of my time. I’ve been participating in the 365 Project dot org, and I will have completed my year on Thursday of taking a photo a day to post on the site. I am looking forward to cutting back a bit! I’m including a photo of a baby Cooper’s Hawk in the header. Mr. & Mrs. Cooper have a nest in the woods behind us, and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their chicks. It appears they have two.
