Busy days here at Wilder's Last Resort. I raked up all of my leaves and stitched them all together for my new "Leaf Peepers" pattern. Borders will be the next order of business once I figure out what I'm going to do.
The majority of the leaves are made with "October Morning" fabric by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. The setting squares are from Kim's "Wit and Wisdom" fabric line. I have the leaf part of the pattern written which was the hardest part. Now I have to finish the rest of it.
I'm am so ready for Fall. I just want to put up the Christmas tree and write this year off.
More bears! While we were eating lunch on the deck yesterday, Mazey sounded the bear alarm. We looked over at our neighbor's cabin, and there was a bear right by their front door. I didn't have my phone, so I don't have a picture of that one......which was a BIG one. While we were eating dinner, the furry bear alarm went off again. I know I'm a good cook, but dinner didn't smell THAT good! I was ready this time, and had my phone with me when this little guy walked by.
The number of bears in our area has made a huge impact on my walking routine. Now we drive down to the track at the elementary school to get in our walk and Mazey's run. We feel a bit safer there.
What is so surprising about the bears is they can sneak up on you. For something so big, they are so quiet. Without Mazey, we probably wouldn't know they were around. We have to walk up to our detached garage to get to our car. I just might be housebound, social distancing, and sheltering in place forever!
