A Wise Old Owl

Looking so thoughtful and somewhat solemn this creature joins me in the garden.

One loop at time he took shape and form.

I'm so happy to have him in my mini-menagerie.  He will sit on a shelf above my laptop and I suspect we will have many long discussions about life and patience.

Getting Started

Beginning any project is always exciting.  There are all sorts of possibilities ahead.

And then reality sets in.  This owl is going to be stuffed so I'll need to make a front and back.  This owl is going to 'loosely represent' the "Great Horned Owl".  This owl needs to have thread colors blended.  This owl will require punching from front to back and back to front and constant attention.  At least he'll only be 5-1/2" tall when completed.

This owl  is proving to me that I can be happy while quietly (or not so quietly) driving myself crazy. *smile*

A Springtime of Roses

I want to share with you Mrs. Orr's roses.  Mr. and Mrs. Orr had this house built in 1985.  We took over in 2004.  

As my husband completely revamped the yard, making it a thing of beauty (it had been neglected after the Orr's left) I insisted that we keep Mr.s Orr's roses.

And so, each spring the two shades of pink fill their section of the yard and I say a quiet thank you to Mrs. Orr.

I've been thinking about...


They are such fascinating creatures.  They are the 'thinkers' of the forest -- perhaps they serve as judges, mayors, psychiatrists and guru's in the animal world.

My  owl study has made a bit of a flurry in my studio. Rather than feathers, I'm dealing with floss.  I'm experimenting with this and that.  I'm having a great deal of fun with these serious creatures.

"The owl", he was saying, "is one of the most curious creatures.  A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps.  They can see in the dark.  I find that so interesting, to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming.  What does he see and what does he know that the rest of the world is missing?" - M.

Hitch Hiking Dragonfly

There is always room for a dragonfly to hitch a ride, wouldn't you think?

I love these beautiful darters and love this time of the year when they are flitting here and there.  I hope this has been the most beautiful of all Springs for each of you.
