March 2nd, new snow
The squirrel, jay and titmouse share a breakfast.
Then came sunny days, all snow was gone from the trees. You can see the paths of hares on our front lawn on March 11th:
In the early hours of March 12th there was again new snow, a squirrel run by the front steps:
The apple tree was like lace:
That morning I heard the first shy song of the blackbird. No matter how cold the weather is or how much snow, when there is more light, the spring is coming and they must start thinking about nesting things.
I had a late Christmas present, and look how organized by sewing threads are now:
Of course I had to move them to the right of the sewing machine, so they are not in the way of my sewings. After my secret projects were sent away I could concentrate of the big wall hanging project again. Nothing much compared to what I have shown earlier, but I unpicked the row of houses, used Heat and bond for a nicer result, and now I have stitched the shadow wall of each house to make it look more real. I'm working on stitching the front area to make it look like a pavement, and then I need to think about windows and doors to make the coloured areas look like houses.
I have downloaded some basics of perspective drawing to help me with the windows and pavement stitching. (Would have been useful already with the houses!)
