Day 181 of 366

It finally rained this afternoon.  It was a nice (but temporary) break from the heat.
Unfortunately, it didn't last and wasn't enough to help our poor lawn
or relieve this severe drought.

Day 179 of 366

I made a cute little bag with laminated fabric.
It got stuffed with goodies from the quilt shop
and went to a dear friend for her birthday.

At the quilt show in Shipshewana
 some of the quilts in the WWII exhibit were displayed on old cars.
This quilt is from 1944.  I'm not sure about the car.

I see you had no trouble with the question posed on Day 167.
It was indeed crayons.
Next time I'll try to make it tougher.

Yes, he is doing the dishes. I am the luckiest.
Happy Father's Day!

Day 163 of 366

I had a tiny (less than 1/4") visitor this morning.
This time he was on the outside of my bathroom window.
This allowed me the view of his underside.
I am always amazed at the things the camera will let you see.

Most are in this same condition.

Day 158 of 366

I had originally planned to post a picture of cloud watching.
One of my favorites was one that looked like a little girl with pigtails.
But when I saw this opportunity, I could not pass it up.

Here is one happy guy!  He found lots of helicopter seeds in our gutter.
It made for a nice mid-morning snack.

Yucca by lamplight
Can someone tell me why I get the upside down reflection of the lamp?
It also happens when I try to capture the moon.

Day 153 of 366

M is working on her latest knitting project.  It is not her first scarf.
It is her first attempt at knitting from a chart.  It seems to be going well.
