I was going to call this "Surfacing for Air," but then I realized that was the title of my last post. Could I be stuck in a rut? possibly.
My quilt show paper piles are dwindling. yay!! I can take time to wander around the yard, snip iris deadheads, and go out to visit the walnuts. The trees are gorgeous. There's just nothing like walking through a grove of 50 year old trees. My son's friend was pretty descriptive when he called it "The Walnut Forest." It's like Christopher Robin's 100 Acre woods, only it's 17 acres. :)
I took the doggie with me, and let him loose. He was SO thrilled. run, run, run, run!! He couldn't run fast enough. The boys had started irrigating the night before, so there was 4-5" of water that he could splash in and out of. He loved it!
I pulled out my camera, and tried to capture his exuberance. I failed. He was too fast. But my camera did a great imitation of Monet, and I think these could easily translate into a quilt, if I am so inclined.
