Last year I was fortunate enough to take a needle painting class from Tanja Berlin who studied at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court. I finished the pansy design which was our in-class project and I bought her Iris kit as well.
I am getting the hang of all these split stitches and hope to finish the main stem this week and then start on the bud.
As I've posted before, we've been seeing a lot of the mule deer this winter. We've had a lot of snow and it's been bitterly cold and they are hungry. How could I not take a picture of this handsome buck Grant has dubbed Torn Ear as he stares at me through the window.
The bucks certainly are a sight to see.
We went for a walk on the ice in the afternoon and it was such a nice reprieve from the bitter cold we've been having.
Spotted these 3 bucks heading into the hills. Probably looking for the ladies and the rest of the herd.
