Deer at the barn

Yesterday when I arrived at the barn I surprised a young female deer, she ran off through the field of wheat - but kept stopping and turning round to see if I was coming!!
She stayed about 40 yards away for a long time watching mebefore lying down and then i couldn't see if she had gone or not!!

Then today I walked in to the back of the barn and there were two young males right outside my window - they were nibbling at the moss - when they saw me they just looked up and stared. 
 I tried to take a photo - but I have bars on the back of my window - and as i tried to slip the phone behind the bars - they wandered off behind the hedge.
After a few minutes I went outside to see them - and they bounced off over the field - they were so beautiful - so swift - so supple they covered the wheat effortlessly. 
 I am always amazed by these beautiful swift shy creatures - they are so graceful and lovely and it is just another example of God's beautiful creation!!
 Til next time 
 God Bless

Mariners compass 

This is the first section of the Mariners compass- I used 16 different red blends to create this quarter compass.

This is the completed compass - I didn't sew it up in the right order - so it didn't work out quite as I expected - I shall sew another one in blue and try to improve it.
 I think they look quite spectacular - they are time -consuming to sew - ( particularly if you have to unpick) but well worth it!!

Appliqued cushion covers 

These are no more difficult than ordinary cushion covers - the only difference is that before you sew the cushion cover together - you sew the applique design on the front piece.
These silhouetted birds in soft blue work well with the grey tree branch- then using the same fabric as the piping - helps to balance the design
Why don't you have a go?
 If you need any help - just pop in - I will be happy to help you 
 God Bless
