Taking Time to look Around
The yard needs some pruning, and I want to take some time to enjoy the Fall. It is suppose to be cool weather, and the temp on my porch was 84 this afternoon. I looked up at the bird feeder to see what all the commotion was about and sitting very still was a Praying Mantis.
Amazing little thing. I thought maybe he was stuck in the sticky hummingbird food, but no, he just looked at me turning his eyes and antennae. So I decided to watch him for a bit.. Along came the humming bird, and he was not too happy about the new guest, but he eventually sat on the other side to drink. Nature is so amazing and buzzing all around us, we just have to take the time to watch.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
