Bee happy

Today was a lovely day to be outside. I’ve got some gut grids promised for the local library wall that needed work. With some sunshine and a bit of shade by midday, the deck was the perfect spot to work.

So, there I am, enjoying the gentle breeze under the trees on the deck, intently wrapping gut around willow rod intersections, minding my own business, and I get buzzed.

The little/big guy didn’t seem to pay me much attention, but he was sure interested in the gut I was using. He walked all over it, smelled it, possibly licked it, certainly tasted it. Or maybe he was just sucking the water off the surface of the gut. In any case, he sure seemed to like the fact that the gut was there.

I hope he doesn’t come to expect it everyday.

**Hurray!  Finally got the picture to show!  Now, to remember what I did for the next time….

  1. Hey Judy! What a nice surprise to see an article by an old friend in the new Fibre & Stitch! I enjoyed it thoroughly. Plus, it helped me find your blog. ;-))

    I’m so sorry about your sister’s barn. I love old barns and am always sad when the old characters are lost. New barns are often so boring.

    I love making blank books too. Funny how we all meet and separate and meet again in our individual paths though the crafts of our art!
