There are days when it is very difficult to stay indoors and work when it is so beautiful outside. Today is one of them. This new piece has so much detail on it, it will be quite a lot of quilting and thread changes so this will take a while to finish before moving on to the foreground. At least there is a big double window in my studio to gaze out of and feel the breeze some through while I work.

I have been lucky enough to make the acquaintance of a wonderful threadwork artist named Kintaro Ishikawa. He is in Japen and has been so kind as to post some of my work on his website. I wanted to return the favor by posting a link to his website for you to visit. He is quite accomplished and if you go there you will see why.

We have now been in this house for a year and in that time we have worked hard on a badly neglected yard. I thought I would give you a tour.
This is our drive up to our house thru the woods.
The front of our house with new plantings along the sidewalk leading to front door.
The walkway to the back door and deck
A view of the back of the house and lower level patio.
The "barn" and raised bed vegetable garden.
