Using denim as the batting is working great! As I said last week, I'm doing really simple quilting. I started with the branch.
Then an orange-brown thread for the feet and beak.
Then a dark variegated for the feathers. I could have finished it off yesterday but I got sidetracked gathering things for the thrift store and doing some chore. Chris is coming home today and I didn't want him to see that I've been a total slob while he's been away.
Saturday afternoon was the tax document burn party. I know most of you shred your documents but, I promise you that a big burn is much more satisfying! We followed that with a nice cookout.
It was hot as hades (because it's July in Virginia) but so worth it.
Yesterday I was ironing the new fabric for the shop when I saw that I had a visitor. I watched him for about an hour as he hunted around the pond. He did get in one good strike but, sadly, missed. I haven't seen a heron in a while so this was my excitement for the day.
Chris comes home today and I'm expecting a cooler full of fish!
