I finished the fourth block from the BOM. This block is called Berries and Leaves. Simple block but makes a big statement, quick and easy even with the small berries.
I was watching the ewe as she kept slapping the water in the pail with her hoof. I have no idea why they do that, in the winter I thought it was to break the ice away, but now, I don't know. Over the years they have broken all the nice cement bird baths so this is the best they get now. She's a mess, still shedding her winter coat.

Don't be afraid...
You're being very brave, new to the neighborhood?
Never seen you before.
You've been hibernating all winter, no wonder I haven't seen you.
Soaking up the rays.
A golden mantled ground squirrel with his or her cheeks full. Don't see them much here on the property, but this little one has taken up residence just outside the storeroom under the boulders. Smaller than the regular squirrels and they have a beautiful golden tone to parts of their fur.

I completed block three from the Baskets, Berries and Leaves BOM. The background is a brushed cotton, a pumpkin colored check from the Moda Basic Woven line. The sun is making that background look a bit lighter than it is. I was too impatient to wait for the sun to drop behind the mountain. I was wanting to try a hike before I got too tired.
The big horns, grazing and feeling good after a very long winter. The red collar looks even bigger on the ewe as she sheds her winter coat. I guess she doesn't mind the collar, but it still looks like they used part of an old Folgers coffee can.
Thanks so much for all the compliments on my wool mat in the Primitive Magazine.
