Suddenly there are two donkeys living in my house.  They're almost entirely hand-sewn...Some kind of pattern is in the making, maybe. I think their names are Bertha and Rosario...they are here, voila!

A couple of weeks ago, Gilly had a visit from her friend Rocket, whom she met in agility class.  They look like cousins, and they might be, for they are both from the same Rescue.  Rocket is very smart (like Gilly).  When they play, it is a big Blur, so here they are as a sort of Still Life.

The other day, I saw something that looked like the center of a daisy on the leaves of my little maple tree.

I touched it, and it spread out til it was about 2 inches wide.  When I looked closely, it turned out to be many tiny yellow spiders.
Never would I have have touched it had I known what it was, and now that it has returned to its cozy family state I am quite inclined to leave it in peace, but what a surprise!

I'm about to start piecing my grand-son's quilt...this is a partial plan...each square will be 12" square:

Speaking of whom, here is a link to news of his dad's latest project.  My son is the guy who draws the pictures, and you'll be able to tell which one is my grandson if you watch the video!!

So on that note, I will say adieu for now...sending love, especially especially to those impacted by recent events...
