Susan asked if I could sew her some strawberries – and these berries are the result! Don’t they look delicious? The largest ones are 5 and 6 inches tall, and the wee one is about 2.5 inches. I almost hated to put them in the mail to her today! I will have to sew some for myself to satisfy my own sweet tooth!
This is the rest of the finishing work I just completed for Susan. She does such gorgeous over one stitching – I love how the ornaments turn out! The needlebooks are particularly lovely – thanks again Susan for having me do your gorgeous things!
This is the view of the wildflower meadow in my front yard. Four or five years ago I began covering up the grass and seeded a prairie meadow. I am amazed at how well it has come in this year – you can see grasses, wild daisies, and some giardilla in the last pic, and a domestic border near the sidewalk in the first two pics. The rocks have come from the field outside our back yard, and from my Mom’s place in BC. In another week or two the prairie coneflowers will be blooming, along with more flax and stickseed, prairie smoke and meadow rue.
And this is the view of the field from my kitchen window, overlooking the back yard. I am going to be very sorry when the field is finally developed – hard to imagine all that green space filled with housing.
