I might possibly be back!
This sweet deer was right in our backyard last weekend, and stayed there eating apples for about a half hour. We see them on the property, but rarely this close to the house. I'm sure the hunters scared it out of the woods. I don't have anything against hunting, I understand the necessity of keeping down the deer population, but we've had problems with hunters coming on our property without permission & coming way too close to the house, so we don't allow hunting on our property anymore. We only have about 5-7 acres of woods & swamp, and there are plenty of woods to hunt around here, so we figure it gives the deer a nice place to hide for a bit.
I've actually done quite a bit of sewing & quilting since I last blogged, but most of the projects are Christmas presents so I can't show too much. This is some fabric (the line is Follow Your Heart by Kathy Schmitz) that I hope to make a project from, I just love it, so unique. I believe I'm safe showing a bit of this project, I think it will go to one of my sons & I'm pretty sure they don't know about my blog. The pattern (table topper/wall hanging) is from Quilting for Christmas 2003 by The Quilter Magazine. Hopefully I'll get this done before THIS Christmas. I'm trying to make a lot of presents this year, I always have that plan, but I never get as much done as I'd like. My sons both have their own apartments now and my daughter & her husband moved into their own house a few months ago so everyone is in need of some crafty type things to decorate up their spaces (whether they know it or not!).
Next time I'll show you the wonderful birthday present I got this year, it's too dark to get a good picture tonight.
Now that I have my favorite blogs list back I need to go catch up on what's going on with everyone. Hopefully I'll still have a working computer in the morning!
