After the big push for the show it feels really good to be taking sometime in the yard, harvesting the garden, enjoying the leaves changing and the last of the blooming flowers. With these clear nights, we have already had a frost. I've got lots of orders lined up and have been working on some the smaller ones just to give myself a break.

It's spring, which means migration time around here. I love all the godwits, whimbrels, dunlins, and sandpipers. Watching and listening to these large groups of birds makes this a very special time of year. I thought about this and decided I wanted to give a nod of appreciation to all the non colorful birds. Tan, grey, brown and white are some of my favorite color choices. Also, here's a picture of my adorable snipe family, they nest in the yard...
Their long beaks are a thing of beauty!

Right now I've got quite a few projects going at once. The big brown leather bag that Robert made is for computers and iPads and such. I'm thinking of printing some words on there, the extra leather is example of how it would look. Do you like that or just plain? What would be a good thing to print? I was thinking WABI SABI but really it's all up in the air. Then the bracelet on the yellow cloth needs lazy stitch but I'm procrastinating because it's made out of sting ray hide which is very hard to sew through. Really neat looking leather though, all bumpy. (kind of looks like beads) I have finished the wolf and the seagulls. I was going for an all black and white piece and using the black velvet as negative space. Now it needs to be made into a bag. And finally the 14 butterflies bag, really in the beginning phase and won't be done for awhile. I did finish one thing, my little chickadee cuff and it sold right away. The gallery wasn't open but I let the customer in and it was my first sale of the season!
And Robert washed the outside of the windows for me!!!
