Sneak Peek - Collection of Quarter Petit Point Rugs


I started working on a little collection of petit point rugs in a quarter scale, the scale I've gotten an interest recently. Some of them are stitched based on my design, some of them not.

This little one is designed by SharonG, stitched on 49 count silk gauze and measures 7/8" x 1 3/8".


Have a wonderful weekend,
Natalia

Somewhere Where My Soul Sings - Toadstool, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Utah


Have I told you that I love hiking? With new route you not only cover miles and work on your endurance, you open whole new world you never knew exists.

Toadstool route, Grand Staircase-Escalante park, Utah is an easy and short hike, but the most extraordinary route I've ever hiked.


To reach the Toadstool we had to walk 1.1 miles along the dead creek.


You are advised to follow the path because of "bumps" or biological soil crusts in the sand that are a living web of organisms, a medley of lichen, fungi, and mosses. They benefit plants by absorbing water, adding nutrients, and stabilizing the soil.

On the way to the Toadstool I saw life.




A Toadstool is a spire-like feature with a boulder perched atop a pedestal rock, like a mushroom, or "toadstool". It forms when softer rock erodes away, leaving a column sheltered from wind and water.


I climbed on the top of the hill and a new valley was opened in front of me.


I wish one day I will be back to finish discovering Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah...

What the Eyes Can Say...


Do the eyes express the soul?

It is up to you to judge...

WELCOME TO BEARIZONA!

This American Bison looks sad for me.


Doesn't he seem to be happy? Isn't he smiling?


What are you looking at?


I think this one is asking your name...


and don't trust you


Tired?


Full of energy...


I couldn't find Black bear's eyes,


but found his claws


I think Porcupine was hiding something from me...



River Otter was very happy, playful, and naughty


My favorite - Bobcat - such a show off. He just knows how to win your heart!


Let me introduce Javelina to you. They don't like to be called pigs even though they look like wild pigs. Javelinas are actually the members of Peccary family; which are a group of hoofed mammals originating from South America.


Meet Red Fox with lovely tale, the one that nobody knows what it said



American Badger tried to understand our language, moving his heard each time when he heard somebody's talking.


Swift Fox didn't seem to like us and stayed far away


Have you ever seen a peacock opening his tale in front of you? It was my first time...


Oh, I got a ZOO...
