As I procrastinated about all that mowing ahead, I thought I'd add & sew the last pieces of the eagles wing. I went into Kyrotime & it was noon before I knew it. Wow I love this piece, just not all 124 pieces that I sewed on with the buttonhole stitch. It will last for years to come, I made it for my youngest son Nicholas. Since he was a young boy he's always loved the eagle.
Just the border to stitch around & the binding to put on & it will be ready for the quilt show in Hardwicke next month & Nick's wall when it returns to Ontario.
I love the richness of texture in the wings & body with all the brown batiks.
I would mow for a spell then get off the tractor & rake my cut grass & dispose of it in the woods.
For hours that was the ritual & here is the result.
Look at his little green feet, he is such a companion dog & follows me wherever I go. He sure sleeps well the next day after following the riding lawnmower around for hours on end. He's snoring as I blog!
