While I’m here, I will show off some pretty dogs I was asked to paint.

This first portrait is on a different strata than I usually use, it is mdf board and has almost no “tooth” so allows for very smooth portraiture.

Here I wanted to use different colors for all the white, and let the color play create the visual interest.

This week I painted several dog tongues. I guess I like how unguarded their expressions are.

We needed to go take photos of that pretty quilt, and while the wind was not cooperating, nature in general certainly did!

We saw deer!

And I thought I found chestnuts, but these are not the real thing. Darn.

Juniper berries seem to be right, though. When can I harvest these to use as a spice? I know game recipes often call for juniper berries. I will have to look that up and go back when they’re ready.

The ducks and geese were winging their way…east?

So soon the winter comes. Sigh. Well, that just means getting out the winter quilt I made last year. Yay for that!

Are you reading my sewing blog? I know I need to link to it more often. I finished my little girl quilt, and it deserves showing-off on two blogs :).

I have a lot more photos of it on my other blog, and the quilt is available for sale in my etsy shabby-chic shop.

This quilt would make a perfect holiday gift for some treasured little girl. The quality of the fabrics and workmanship (made by my own hands!) ensure the quilt will last a lifetime.

Sally was a goat at the fair this year. I love her colors, and her curiosity.
