And this one amazed me. I photographed the quilter's description beside it. She used the basic house pattern and then diamonds placed on point to create the landscape. I'd love to see the landscape in gradations of beige (for wheat) or green, and the houses in actual house colors. Guess that's the realism in me coming out. Can't venture too far outside the norm! ;)

The quilt expo came back to Raleigh this year, and I had the opportunity to go yesterday with a friend. It was really cool running in to people from classes and stores, but we also enjoyed looking at the vendor booths, but mainly enjoyed the quilt shows/exhibits themselves. I didn't take many pictures this year, but here's the few I did capture:

|What Bobby has dubbed "the annex"...peas, 4 tomatoes, 1 okra;|
a rabbit ate most of my lettuce and spinach.
|Zipper Cream Peas, growing in hay bales,|
which a yellow biddie is picking at.
|Geese are eating the bottom stems and leaves on my green beans,|
to my chagrin and Bobby's delight.
|Corn didn't produce much, and is mostly gone.|
|Momma hen outside the garden,|
waiting on the biddies to come back out.
|Momma hen pointing out a bug to the yellow biddie, with black biddies coming out of the garden fence.|
|Carrots, which the chickens keep trying to dig up.|
|And where the geese are eating the sweet potato leaves...|
|The first time I've seen the hummingbird actually perch.|
Usually he flies in and out over and over, never landing.
