Our winter travels have taken us away from the beach and to the middle of Texas ranch country. We are in the middle of long horn cattle country surrounded by sprawling live oaks that stay green all year.
Out one window of our camper is a tree loaded with mistletoe.
Out another window we frequently see deer.
We have had two to three weeks of cold weather, and while we are thankfully not shoveling snow we have been inside for several days because of wet drizzly weather. I have been doing a lot of stitching. Patchwork of the Crosses has been a great small space project. I happened to have packed a small piece of batting and it is a nice work surface to hold the individual pieces in place while I am stitching. I do not get fussy cutting elements in every block, sometimes working on getting different colors and pattern variations in the mix of blocks. I have 22 blocks finished here are my most recent ones:
When the weather clears we try to get out for walks. There is a nearby lake and the other day we went there to go out on some of the hiking trails. We were given the following flyer at the park gate and my husband and I had a little nervous chuckle over it.
We cautiously proceeded with our walk and this is the only wild life we spotted that day.
That is not an alligator with it's mouth stretched open, just an Ibis wading in the shallows and it's reflection in the water.
Happy Stitching all!
