Beauvais and a Bear

I knew that Beauvais was an ambitious project, but I'm pleasantly surprised that it is stitching as easily as it is.  I hope to complete the top row of what is essentially a nine patch pattern by this weekend.

Vintage Textiles ~ Beauvais

I've decided this will be the first in a collection that will be entitled 'Vintage Textiles'.  I have so many more in mind that it is an impetus to finish Beauvais so I can introduce the next one.

It has been a blessedly wet and cool spring into summer here on Gracewood.  The fawns are being born and I hope to post some photos of all the roses in bloom soon.  Another sign of late spring showed up this week and I was able to grab the camera and get a brief video of a visitor to our deer feeder.  A block of deer feed was leftover from winter and he made himself welcome to it - I mean who is going to argue with him? lol


  1. Hi Kathy! We frequently have black bear around our house. One time while packing up for an RV trip to Disney World, Florida, a black bear cub climbed up on an Adirondack chair on our front porch, lost his balance, fell against our bow window pulling down our bird feeder. By this time, we were all watching through the front window. He had the feeder in his hands, looked at us and then proceeded to lift up the feeder and drink the seeds as if he were drinking from a glass. The scene still has us chuckling at times. I only wish I'd have been able to record it on film. God's creatures are certainly marvelous! Take care and enjoy the wildlife!

  2. Hi Lorene, you described that so well I can just see it happening, lol Our wildlife often gives us a great deal of entertainment. Right now the young bucks are growing their velvety racks and spending a lot of time at our mineral/salt blocks and it is fun to watch their interactions with each other.
