Marbelling fabric

I am off in a new direction as I have now learned to marble fabric.  Here is a kaleidoscopic image created from some marbled fabric created at the Vermont Quilt Festival!

Cotton Candy Grass and Labrador Tea in Bloom

On another walk to Eagle Hill blog, the cotton candy grass was in spectacular bloom along with the labrador tea.  So I made two kaleidoscopes this week!

Original photo of the cotton candy grass was this:

The labrador tea was equally as impressive:

Bog and Rhodora Bloom

Week Twenty Four.....What and Where is this?

This week brought some beautiful days and some foggy days.  On one of the foggy days, we visited the Eagle Hill bog in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park (also know as RCIP) because the rhodora are usually at their peak around the first of June and they were.  The kaleidoscope below shows the bog, the walkway, the rhodora, and give you a sense of the fog:

Original photo was this, but I did not include Saba in the kaleidoscope.  She still gets around very well at nearly 12 years old:
