Blessings

Design - "Blessings"
Designer - Heart in Hand
Fabric - 32 count Tumbleweed linen
Fibers - WDW & GAST - 2 strands over 2 fibers
Started - 6 November 2011
Completed - 13 November 2011

I like the quiet, muted fiber pallet used for this design.  I think that the adage is all the stronger with the low-key presentation.  I will not go into detail, but will mention that five years on, I have much to be thankful for!   

Sunday morning there were two Bucks about.  This is Buck #2 - the smaller of the two guys.

He was large enough, and aggressive enough, to pester this doe and fawn.

And he thought himself a rather handsome fellow.
But wait!

Here's Buck #1 - The Big Man on Campus! 
He is physically larger and had larger antlers than the other Buck.  I don't think I'd ever noticed the brown / white pattern on the throat before either.  Maybe it is something only mature Bucks have. 

Sunday there were no Quail about.  But this fellow hung about for hours...waiting.
