Going Wild For Flowers (Glenrock, WY)

Wild flowers are popping up in the fields nearby.  All the latest rains and sunshine are working their magic.
 Since this has been a slow week for me, I thought I would share a few photos of the flowers.
This little guy was quite busy collecting pollen.  He buzzed by my camera lens a couple of times.  It's too bad I could not get the lens to focus on him when he was hovering in front of it.  Wouldn't that have been an interesting shot!
On The Cutting Board
Inspired by all the wild flowers, I decided to add a potted plant with the puppy in the window.  Thanks to our small living space, our cats are always knocking things down.  Why should a puppy be any different?
Besides I had to try a new stitch I found online.  The flower is made from a Brazilian lace stitch.  Two threads are cast onto two large needles and .....well, it is better if you go to the link.  She has pictures and explains it better than I do.
It is pretty simple to do.  I practiced making two flowers before I did this third one on the mug rug.  Now, I have a dimensional flower.  I think I'll make the next one's petals a little bigger.
I have been working on other projects, but I'm not ready to show them just yet.  So back to my projects...
Happy Quilting!
