In doing last night's journal page, I searched extra hard in the background to pull out something other than a girl. I was just in the mood to paint something different and I found a fat birdie :)
I painted and stitched up a Christmas ornament also, but I'm having trouble accepting it as completed! It's tea-stained muslin quilted with a denim back. Any suggestions? Should I do some decorative stitching around the edges, or sew trim or sequins on? Or is simplicity best in this case? He has a sprinkling of diamond dust (tiny glitter) on him, not sure if you can see this in the photo.

My oldest and middle sons (Derek & Ryan) went out to western ND hunting yesterday morning and Derek got his mule deer! He sent me a pic and I thought I'd share. Mule deer tags are harder to come by so he was excited to get the chance this year. I'm glad he had a successful hunt. I WISH I could find the photo of when he got his very first buck. He was 10 years old and he got it with his bow. His little pic was in the local paper. Since his Dad has basically been the one to lead him down the hunting road, I'm sure that picture went to him after the divorce :)
You'll have to take my word for it, he was beaming and so proud.
I'm not a hunter, actually I feel sorry for the hunted, but my kids are good hunters and I respect that they do things the right way. Their Dad taught them the rules and ethics of hunting ~ I'll give him credit for that :)
