Elk in the Hay Field... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full

Last evening the Elk herd

came down from the timber...

Their spring calves 

could not jump over the fence,

so are waiting for them in the top left 

of this photo above.

These images were taken through the

living room window, so aren't the best quality.

If you double click them, they will enlarge.

along the river watching the elk graze...

The only downside was ...

One Block Wonder from Elsie Quilts

I made one, but now have to do this again. The blocks are like a kaleidoscope -- impossible to put down because of the surprises. 

Also, I joined a Facebook Group called OBW and they are putting the most colorful and surprising quilts online. Some are made with prints using repeats and some are made with panels. The idea is to buy 7 and incorporated the hexies around one panel. 

Here is one example. The photo isn't the greatest but I love the way the quilter blended the blocks and framed the little angel in the panel. BTW, if you ...

Elk... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full

The elk usually come down from the timber

in the evening...

then eat all night long in the hay fields...

today, they came down in the morning

and spent the entire day browsing...

This is the view out our living room window...

they are really something to see!

Their calves will be born late Spring.
