Heron At Sunrise

October 29, 2011

The latest Uncommon Threads Challenge was “Peaceful Waters” which happens to be the title of a song written by Roberta Ranney’s husband, Bob.

I used this pictures of a Heron that I took at sunrise last year down at our neighborhood boat ramp.

I could have tried dyeing fabric for the background, but that seemed tedious so I found some hand dyed that I bought a number of years ago and have been savingĀ  for a special occasion. This is the occasion. I printed the heron onto fabric and then machine embroidered all over it and fused “him” and the dock to the background.

Fall 2011

October 10, 2011

I was busy canning tomatoes this week.

The fall colors are slow in coming and may not be as good as usual due to our drought, but this field of soybeans was beautiful.

And the sunsets and sunrises are gorgeous.

Evening, about 5:30 PM

This morning about 6:30 AM
