First, thanks to those who sent comments of concern & encouragement. I am feeling better. Man, I sure do hate to waste a whole three day weekend, though. But, this week on my lunch breaks, and after work, I’ve managed to do some sewing on Daddy’s log cabin quilt. I’m likin’ it….
A little more fun from around the yard…look at this eenstie teenstie weentsie mushroom I found growing on my Russian Olive tree…there are several of these.
Some tiny insect eggs on the same tree.
Praying mantis egg, same tree
An older praying mantis egg.
Don’t know what this is…It looks like hair from the cat, but it looks as if something has formed it into this perfect little sphere.
I just love this old tree. The bark is so beautiful…what great texture…and it’s full of all kinds of hidden little surprises when you take the time to look.
And a beautiful thunderstorm.

I’m a simple woman…at least that what my DH (Dear Husband) used to say about me…I was a wife, I am now a widow, mother, step-mother & step-grandmother, quilter, and have a full time job in criminal justice. I lost my DH on May 22nd, 2011. I live in a small town in Texas. I love piecing quilts, I love quilting quilts. I have a serious addiction to fabric. I’ve been quilting since 1998, and purchased my first longarm, a Gammill Premier, in 2004. I upgraded to an A-1 Elite, named Corky, in March, 2007. I am in the process of rebuilding my life after losing my spouse. All photos and content in this blog are my own, and I request that you not download, copy or otherwise use anything here without my permission. I hope you enjoy visiting my blog and would love to hear your comments. Thanks for stopping by!

Glad you are feeling better! Dad’s quilt is going to be beautiful!! I have no idea if my praying mantis eggs hatched. Is there a way to tell?
Randi, glad to see you feeling well enough to update your blog. 🙂 Good for you on the quilt and your tree is a treasure trove of nature’s surprises.
Great photos! I hope you have a better weekend this weekend.
Just because I’m curious…what is the size of your log cabin block? I love how it looks. Great pics, too!
Love the colors in your dad’s quilt Randi. Glad you are feeling better.
