I went to the New England Quilt Museum with my friend Kathleen.  The special exhibit was "A Passion for Prussian Blue, Vibrant American Quilts from 1830 to the Present."  I was pleased that they allowed photographs without flash. The quilts on display were just so beautiful, I love Prussian Blue!  Here is one
of the quilts with that special blue fabric.

The museum has wonderful displays on-going.  Check them out on the Web for current exhibits!
Remember to play a little every day. :)

June, Summer Is Here!

We had a few just perfect days but then the wind and cold showed up again. Darn!  I hope my flower seeds will germinate.  I want a a lot of zinnias to use in my silk eco-printing.  I'm harvesting rose petals from my rose bushes and I'm trying out some False Indigo leaves too.

We visited the Audubon Society Center yesterday.  I was hoping to go to Squam Lake Science Center but it was really too windy for a two hour walk around the center so we decided on an alternative and it worked out well.  I took some photos of the raptors including a bald eagle.  They were in large cages behind fencing that unfortunately wasn't easy to shoot through.  I did manage to get a couple of good photos focusing on the eagle.

I went out last week and took some pictures of Lady Slippers.  They are beautiful wild flowers that come out in early spring for just a short time.  They are protected wild orchids and I love finding them.

Peace, Diane
