We had a magnificent maple tree just off out deck. That is why every picture I took on the deck where I do my rust dyeing is shady. It was a silver maple, which is not a hard wood tree. They usually last 100 years. Our house was built in 1919 so the tree was close to being 100. The insurance company requested we take it out. It was very sad to loose this tree.
Many animals including flying squirrels used this tree. Once 5 raccoon babies were in the tree and their mother was on the ground. I swear I heard them saying as plain as day, "Ma, ma, ma"!!!

We had a bird feeder on the tree. You can see it on the top picture. You can also see it in the picture above. Now we have a face!!!

Deep Space

My quilt, Moonscape, was accepted into Deep Spaces. All the quilts had to be 18" wide and 45" tall, that’s a vertical orientation, like a hanging scroll.

The show was divided in half to accommodate all the 50 pieces in the show. Moonscape won't be at Latimer Quilt and Textile Center but it will Edmonds Conference Center. Hope you can see it!!!
