Snow Geese

I took these pictures of snow geese that had flown into the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge.
There was about 30 of them and they all made their way on shore to feed except for three.
It seemed that these three was timid or had been spooked before on land. Perhaps a fox or hawk chased them.

After a few minutes a car drove by on the road and scared them off.
The second picture shows them in flight and the third picture shows them landing.
There was a beautiful reflection in the water as they was landing.

Felted woman quilt

I made this for a group of crafters that my daughter and I belong to called “ In Good company”.

Each month we are given a challenge to make something from a kit that we get.

For the month of April we was given 4 colors of wool felt to use, a piece of wool fabric and felt needles along with a few other items.

I told my daughter that we should make something really different. After thinking about it for a few days I came up with making a man and woman wall quilt.
My daughter choose the man and that left me with the woman to make.

I decided to use a vintage picture of a beautiful young girl and use the wool felt to make her hair.
I used wool fabric to make the hat with.

You can see my daughters wall quilt at her blog site.

These are original designs.
