walking another

this is my north country.
there is still some snow around.
you can see lake ontario on the left, 
and the st. lawrence river emptying out the all great lakes 
on the right is lake champlain
where the white is are the adirondacks
there's a ridge of sorts from below the st lawrence 
running sw to ne. those are my foothills.
 i walked gwen last night.
she doesn't behave like wendy did, 
she is enamored of birds 
as she should be.
i've gotten some treats in the mail lately
 this envelope was filled with goodies, 
but i particularly loved this graphic
enhanced by aimee
the sample of aimee's fused paper to fabric made me chuckle.
 and this packet from beautiful silks arrived.
 lest i get the big head
the macbook won't in any way allow me to upsideright this
but you can read my title there
sideways and roped in with marion-made strings.
(i can add that marion is wonderful, too.)
my very own 
favorite 
goofy 
thingie
with reflection
 until gwen and i returned home
as the sunset.
 last weekend i met in person
the wonderful and witty lee thompson
and forgot to provide a link.
also, i forgot to link todd and sharon pattison.

a bird got into the morgan yesterday! tom thinks it was a robin. it found its way out eventually, thank goodness, and hopefully wasn't too deterred by trying to fly out of closed windows. my oberlin paper student printed those images! i knew you'd like.

Wonderful images, as always. Many thanks for the link to Lee Thomson ... love her stitched map.
And a question: is Gwen a Welsh springer spaniel?

Velma Bolyard said...

aimee, yay that the robin was a wise one!
liz, gwen is a llewellyn setter, the welsh version of an english setter. the stitching is amazing and the desigh is superb.

Lovely mail surprises and that 'thingy' is magical in the sunset!
