When the cold came
Little islands of ice
started forming on the beaver pond.
Beaver sticks jutting up from the pond
the ice islands
and then the reflections in the water.
There is stitching inspiration here.
On my walk that morning I noticed
a new beaver highway.
It drops down into wateriness
and they obviously just slid down it.
A toboggan run!
Above the toboggan run
was a mass of beaver footprints
They had been busy the night before.
And, yes, then I noticed all the chewed up alder
beside the path I was walking.
They did all that in one night.
They really have earned that expression
"as busy as a beaver'.
Out in the open on the driveway
rabbits hopped along beside a line of beaver prints.
Another beaver path going down to a burrow
that goes into the beaver pond.
You can see how worn it is.
Beaver footprints next to mine.
Big aren't they!
A piece I called Beaver Moon.
I am having so many beaver experiences this year
I think I should stitch a beaver series.
And just a few dots I am enjoying stitching at the moment.
I really need quiet for stitching.
Lately I have been busy like a beaver.
Hanging shows and going to openings.
Times like that I can't settle into stitch.
Too much left brain activity going on!
May you find time to quietly stitch today.
