Latest stitching on Crazy Quilt Square for Hearts and Hands for Sendai quilts

Here's some pictures of my latest embroidery on a square sent to me by Leslie in Colorado. It's a crazy quilt square made for the Hearts and Hands for Sendai Crazy Quilts being made by the Crazy Quilt International online group (

 I promised Leslie I'd post some pictures for her. The square is not fully done. Have gotten a good start. Added the crane as for a wish of recovery for the region. I think it is turning out well so far. Am still contemplating what else to do.


Full block as it is today - still needs lots of work.

Lace and embroidery - seam not finished yet

More lace - amd still going to add something to this.

Lace flowers enhanced - this one is finished.

Crane partially outlined and flower below.

Wildlife in my front yard

It's that time of year to think and see the wildlife in my yard. Over the years I've managed to get a few pictures.

One Morning I was really surprised by a group of coyote pups gamboling all around my front yard. (This is what happens when I forget to cut the grass.)  Their guardian (mother?) was lying just under the hedge watching the group. For some reason she thought my front yard was a good playpen. And play they did!

Mom said this is a good place!

What's here?

What is that?

Okay I've got something to tear apart! Mine! All mine!

There's got to be something to pounce here somewhere!

Hmmm. What's this?

Ah! Now I'm going to get him!

You ready to give up?

What is that person doing?

Who are you?

Sleeping Coyote mama

Ah, ha! Gotch'ya again!
Then of course there are the "long legged rodents (i.e. deer)  that love to much on roses! We have a small herd of these beasties in our small acreage. Caught photos of one young buck a short while back just leisurely munching grass in my front yard. Was able to get some good photo's out my dining room window. This fellow had no fear.
