Miscellanea

There’s not much new to show as I keep adding stitches to The Land as the Crow Flies

 

but it is slowly getting stronger, becoming more itself.
So I thought a little catching up might be in order. First, there’s the matter of a breezeway newcomer crafted by Don …

 

using old ceiling fan blades …

 

and a repurposed wooden organ pipe …

 

I must say, though, my favorite part is the woodburned and milk-painted eye …

 

While taking pictures, I noticed a visitor in the Herb Garden …

 

And if any of you were wondering where I’ve been, we had grandkids visiting last week …

 

One of their projects was repainting some rusted metal airplanes (from a lawn ornament) and a  Kokopelli lamp stand (which are not going to remain together except for this photo) …
Their efforts, supervised by Pop Pop, are worthy of close-ups …

 

 

 

Of course, as I took these shots, my eye once again caught on something else: this time a metalwork roadrunner we gifted to each other that has found a home beside Don’s pueblo assemblage …

 

Lastly, a lovely gift appeared in the mail from Sue (Blessings of Thread) which my muddle stitching finger will appreciate (pun intended) …

 

Sue had also gifted me with a delightful bag when she was last in Texas. It has since been made into a much-needed ukulele case …

 

I do love repurposing!
