Creative News From My House
Here in Boise the sun has been shining and we've had some lovely
spring weather which has been perfect for gardening,
or simply sitting outside spinning.
My husband, Marshall, finished another unique birdhouse
with curved lines using the same
cove and flute techniques for the sides.
He added some milk paint on the front
for a dash of color.
For now it's hanging in front of our house,
but eventually we'd like to hang it in the oak tree in our front yard.
I finished hand quilting the London square quilt!
It turned out just as I had hoped that it would....
I finished spinning the red, orange, and bright yellow
Merino/nylon roving that I dyed.
It was quite nice to spin and I love the bright colors.
I think it will make some snazzy socks :-)
I was walking a nature trail along the Boise River
the other day with my dogs
and I was able to photograph a couple of birds that I saw
before they took flight.
Speaking of birds, my family and I were out riding
our dual sport motorcycles last Saturday
when I stopped to take photos of a
hillside where swallows have hollowed out homes.
We rode by a colorful orchard of fruit trees in bloom.
And we stopped for a picnic lunch along the Payette River where we
were watching an osprey catch his fish lunch.
Here's hoping that you have time for fiber/fabric
or maybe just taking in the lovely spring views,
