Quilting Sketch Book.....Background Fill



This is a background fill design:



It is a series of:

 S Curves, Clamshells and Plumes





It works great for compressing the background 

areas around applique




This is how I stitch it out:


I drew this while traveling through

Wyoming last year.




 This version does not have plumes:






We recently added 2 new flowerbeds to the yard:


This new bed along side the guest house will be for

Hollyhocks





Supplementing the soil with rabbit manure...











The new bed tilled up beautifully...






Tilling up the second bed, by the fence






Gunnr is supervising.....as usual






The yearling cattle are fascinated by yard work...






The young cattle find everything we do 

so interesting!






They stood at the fence amazed 

while Brad hosed off the tiller...






They even watched us 

while we took an afternoon nap!






Friends at the Fence




The new flower bed already has visitors:


Evening Grosbeaks











The hollyhock starts are growing FAST!






So are the Sunflowers...





Hard to believe they will be 8 feet tall this summer!
