and wonder outside my back door I discovered this afternoon while taking a break from quilting.
What caught my eye was the larger bird and the sound of peeps. Looking closer I could see three small chick trying to make their way through the grass following the calling sound of their mother. I watched them for a while trying to take a clear photo of them from behind the glass door to keep from scaring them. But no luck. I finally went out side and captured the image you see here.
While I was wondering about the garden I discovered these mushroom growing under a bush. My hostas are doing great and these colorful "who knows I just love them." are doing well too.
The mushrooms here are not the first ones to pop up. If I knew they were edible, I could go into business and possibly have a tidy sum of money by now as I have had a bumper crop of them in both the front and back yard.
Every few days I go out, dig them up and turn the mulch over them, which probably is adding to their proliferation rather than their eradication.
Any non poisonous solutions to mushroom in the garden?
This is the piece I am quilting now. It is dye painted on silk broadcloth. As I was quilting I made another discovery today about what I like and dislike about my work and I have concluded that I do not like variegated thread and I do not like 30 weight thread. I like the look of texture in my work, but I do not want to really see the thread. Somewhere deep down I must have known this but maybe I have not said it out loud. Or said it to myself enough. Or maybe this time when I said it it finally sunk in. So as I was quilting I was thinking what was I going to do with all of the variegated thread that I have in the studio that I do not plan to use again. And what will I do with all the 30 weight thread that I have collected. That I do not plan to use again. And I was thinking I need to order some more Aurifil 50 and Mettlers 60 wt in several colors that I am out of.
