As you know California has had lots of water recently to "replenish the earth".
Where I live there is an area that is sort of a low spot which in the summer is dry, but with all of the rains lately we've accumulated quite a pond. The ducks find it quickly once it fills.
So this reminded me of the ducks in my quilt, "Sequoia Duckpond", and I thought' I'd share a photo of the stages I went through to construct the ducks in that quilt.
If you look closely at the last stage, you can see all of the threadwork on the duck. Click on the link and you can see where this duck lives on the finished quilt.
I've been making notes, checking them twice, of choir performances, local events etc that I'd like to see during the month--Making Spirits Bright.
We visited Jacoby Storehouse in Arcata to see the tree. 24' tall.
Awesome in person…I took these with my camera…should have taken Gary’s, but these are ok.
Whenever I visit this building, my mind goes back about 60 years to what it was like in those years and following.
I guess that’s part of “maturing”. Everything has a memory. Well, the tree has become a tradition.
Merry Christmas to you!
Many times you've seen me publish quilts of the redwoods. I thought you might enjoy this photo. On our recent outing to the redwoods my husband shot this photo of me walking around looking for a "perfect shot". I thought it would give you a bit of perspective to the size of the trees. They are awesome!
