No More Pointy Wings

Angel with modified wings

I did manage to modify Monica Hahn’s beautiful angel pattern with wings more to my liking — although the next time I do them I might make them a bit shorter.

I’m still a fairly new tatter and had a lot of problems understanding the skirt part of the directions.  Anyone who has tatted this angel will see a couple of mistakes.

Gina (The Tatting Goddess) did a beautiful beaded version in blue.  Click here and scroll down to the Sunday, April 26 post to see it.

Ron and I are both having serious camping withdrawals.  We should have the money together to look for another camper in October.  Hope we survive the wait.  🙂

Rural Ramblings

Tonight Ron and I were sitting on the back deck right before dark.  We looked up and saw a most unusually colored deer browsing the  tender weeds at the edge of the clearing.  She was darker than a normal whitetail and had even darker markings that looked like shadows in the dusk.

Sunny barked, and she kept on grazing.  But then I scolded Sunny and told him to stop barking, and she eased back into the woods.

My flowers all died while we were on our last camping trip.  I used to love vegetable and flower gardening, but learned that you can’t garden and camp a lot.  The two are mutually exclusive activities.

That’s okay.  I’ll take the camping.  I can feast my eyes on the breathtaking wild gardens we encounter on our travels.

While we were gone, someone around here shot some more dogs.  It’s a periodic problem around here.  Usually they shoot dogs that roam whose owners won’t keep them home.  But this time they shot two fenced dogs.

We are keeping a close eye on Sunny.

I am having camping withdrawals.  I can’t wait until we are back on the road again.
