What a difference a few days can make! Last posting (May 18th-snow) this posting, photos taken 2 weeks later. I got sunburned on my back while spending the day out on the deck, painting some fabric.

Broccoli has been enjoying the change in the weather too.

This local garden pest took an afternoon nap in the shade of our evergreens. He is a big garden pest, but we love having them hang around.

We went to Sadie Cove over Memorial weekend. We were invited by one of the Doctors I used to work for. He & his family have a group of cabins, & several of us from the old office went. I'll post a big post on that weekend in the next day or two, but the reason I'm bringing it up now, is Patty (Dave-the doctor's wife), gave me these 3 tools from one of the old cabins, just because I thought they were wonderful. I think they are for shaping wood trims, but what I did with them was use them for stamping on fabric.

I alternated 2 of them along the edge of the piece above, then used the triangle shape all over on the piece below.

I also just played with color & a couple of bubble-like stencils that I have, to make the all-over designs. It felt so good to be out in the hot sun getting sweaty & creative at the same time!
What a treat after such a long cold winter!

Next post Sadie Cove!

Very cool Deb! Wish I had a deck to sit out on and enjoy the sun.

Welcome to Spring! And you celebrate it just perfectly!

I can't believe your 'pet' moose-yikes, and I thought moles were a problem garden pest!

Yay! Spring has arrived! You have cool garden pests too.

Great idea for the old tools, nothings better than playing with fabric outside in the sun.
Love the moose, he's a little bigger than our garden pests.
