Embellishments (in the Garden

where's Waldo?

where’s Waldo?

It has been a long time since I have been able to sit down and write a note for my blog. There has been work on next steps for Focus on Fibre Arts and reports. I judged the Prairie Rose Challenge for the Edmonton and District Quilters Guild. There were twenty entries this year and the theme was polka dots. I am impressed with how the creativity of our members has grown in the 35 years that the Guild has been in existence. I became a member soon after the Guild was formed so I have been able to follow our development as quilters for a long time.
My garden has also taken some of my time. I wish I had more time to give to it as I love being in it and it inspires me to design. Needless to say floral design is a favourite theme that I return to again and again
This week on one cool and rainy day as I was in the process of making muffins one morning something took me to my living room window. As it was dull and misty when I looked out I thought that there was a rock in with some of my day lilies. However I couldn’t remember putting a rock there. A second look registered that the rock was blinking at me and wrinkling its nose. I grabbed the camera and went quickly out and got some pictures. While I was mixing the muffins I wondered what I could do to discourage eating the tender leaves of the day lilies and perhaps distract bunny from them. So once the muffins were in the oven I cleaned a carrot (what else) and took it out. Bunny wrinkled its nose and took off rather quickly. The carrot is still there, even the magpies wouldn’t consider it.
