So, while I don't have a lot of pics, there has been some sewing going on. A new little shift dress is in testing stage as is a woven crossover tee shirt. Both of these are muslin's, in the same print with scraps and such for any detail work.
There has been some steady weaving on the prayer flag warp and I've played around with a little inlay
here and there.
This is something I want to experiment more with, on this warp and another one, at some point.
And Big Sal has been outfitted with the plain beam and apron.
Can't wait to get another warp on her! The pillowcase warp I want to do is actually an 8 shaft pattern.
The deer have been pretty scarce around here. Oh, we've had a nip or two on the garden edges, but for the last two days I haven't even seen a deer, but my family of Grey Foxes has been around as has other wildlife. It will be interesting to see if some numbers go up of displaced wildlife from the fires.
What we do have for constant entertainment is the Hummingbirds. And you know I just adore them. I set up many of the plantings in this garden with them in mind. We have mostly Anna's Hummingbirds but also one clan of Rufus too. It is hard to tell the difference between females which is which. And I spend a lot of time snapping pics of them. Challenging little subjects but here are some of the better ones.
This one is very obviously a fledgling. She rest often there on the rock, but is a great little flyer when she gets going. The cats avoid the garden BTW, because of the scarecrow, so our little hummers are pretty safe there.
We also have a resident toad. I find him often times when I'm weeding. A few little garden snakes have been spied too. I caught one just because. A very pretty black with yellow side stripes. Not too big, maybe about 9 inches long. Upon release he slithered under the plants and disappeared.
Thank you all again for all the prayers and positive thoughts. We really appreciate it. Not out of the woods yet (bad pun I know), but things are looking much better especially for those on the east and south east edges of the blaze.
Parting shot: Morning nap.
