I have been having so much fun and delightment this year due to joining the Ohio Butterfly Facebook page . https://www.facebook.com/groups/187696631361914/It has made me go out on long walks and to open my eyes to look for all the many different butterflies I could find, then look them up in a reference guide and try to figure out their names. I didn't realize that there are so many butterflies in my area, Next year I will be planting more flowers that butterflies like, but my most successful bush for bring them in to watch and eat is the "butterfly bush"
Many people have been asking about my fiber art and what have I been doing all summer. As you know I have been bless with living on a lake. This is the view from my living room. It was taken early spring and the pink dogwood was not in bloom yet. But I took this pic and I am turning it into a landscape wall hanging. I have been experimenting with curved piecing. I will post it when I am finished with it. I think it is starting out quite well.
ttps://www.facebook.com/rhianon.taylor She just purchased a long arm, but still is returning to her home machine (Bernina) because she can get more control with it at this point. So I have been quilting Addy's quilt on my Bernina. My goal is to get it done this week-besides she's been asking for it.
Ok, you can tell I have a long way to go. Oh well, This really is not my cup of tea. Way to tedious. And one more thing, I have been having a great time dying my own fabric about 10 yards of it. Sorry no pictures other than the piece above. So I will be using a plain background for this confetti quilt and same this great orange/yellow piece for something else.
Only as a sidelight: I also had a beautiful grandson, Colin, born 7/2/13, 10lbs 8 oz to my daughter and son in law. My granddaughter, Adeline, also had 2 operation to save her 3 fingers which were severed in a accident, but they are all healed and working now due to some very fine doctors in Toledo Children's Hospital and Michigan Children's Hospital. So this has been a busy summer.
