I considered starting a Broderie Perse project, but decided that might not be mindless. Not up to that.
So instead I found a fabric that somewhat mimicked that idea. I have two daughter's that live in the area. The older one is a teacher and works a great deal with an agency that traps and neuters ferrel cats and returns them to their colonies. They often do fundraisers to pay the vet bills so I though I would contribute to one of her agency's fundraisers.
A quick trip to JoAnn's this week to pick up beads for my beach landscape. Not really beads except for one, but perfect for that piece.
This is a photo of a visiter at my younger daughter's home this past week. He is a Northern American Heron and he brought his lady friend with him. Unfortunatley they decided to dine on the fish in pond and devoured all 50 or so gold fish in it. Not a single fish left! Ben my youngest grandson, the keeper of the pond, proclaimed to get his BB gun out and get them. Mother of course did not allow that, but I don't think they are going to be in a hurry to replace the fish until those two move along to another dining establishment.
