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!

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.
