Where was I? I'm still collage-ing backgrounds, and turning them into quilts, plus thread-sketching.

In nature news, found this tiny snapping turtle on the sidewalk this morning.
Then, there was this little tragedy. Found a wasp killing a butterfly. He had pulled its head off. Yikes!
Under the category of "cool finds," I bought this bit of iron fencing at an estate sale this morning. Planning to make a corral for the garbage can. Actually, I'm planning to have Mr. C. plan to do it.
More nature news, we have the most amazing collection of fungi in our woods and pasture. These giants, grow to about the size of a baby's head! They are quite heavy, and if left alone, they will turn dark brown, and explode in a cloud of black smoke, if you kick them or run over them with the lawn mower (my personal favorite).
If you think that whole "itchy hay thing" was making me CRANKY, I've lost my MiFi connection FOUR times while downloading these pictures! What's up with that?
Anyway, TGIF. I'm pretty sure it's wine o'clock!
