Ssshhhh! Be very quiet and don't move suddenly either

I was in the back of the house straightening things when Pep called me in an urgent voice.  "Jan - come here and be very quiet.

He was standing at the kitchen sink looking out the window.  When I quietly joined him I saw this beautiful deer eating corn and birdseed off of our birdfeeding bench.  

It would look up when a bluejay or cardinal landed on one of the feeders close to the house, then quietly go back to feeding.  I went to get my camera but the flash would go off and reflect off of the window.  Pep's phone camera wasn't strong enough.  Then he thought of his IPad.  The camera on the IPad isn't the greatest so the pictures are a little grainy but we got them.
It was a really nice way to start the morning.

We're getting ready for the 4th - cleaning house for the festivities - cleaning rugs tomorrow after Zoie's puppy was learning what to do and where not to do it.  :)
Then I'll change the quilts this weekend and all of the decorations.

This is "Ring Around the Posie" - one of my favorite summer quilts for my bed.  It's not red, white and blue but it certainly says "summer" to me.  The colors of the quilt on the bed are more of the true colors of the fabrics.  Photography is so interesting.

Anyway, it's regularly $174.95 but the kit is on special until the 4th for $148.70.  And this week we learned to use the coupons on our store.  Yay!  If you type in the promo code "posie"  you'll get free shipping on all orders over $100.00.

Well back to cleaning...... but I have some fun stitching waiting for me tonight.


  1. Sweet, one of my most favorite critters.

    1. Not quite as exotic as most of yours, Nancy, but good for Missouri. :)

  2. That is so cute, yesterday I saw a baby come running out of the bushes. I was thinking of setting up a bird feeding station like that and that way I could place a water bowl on it too.


  3. between the deer, squirrels and chipmunks our birds hardly get any birdseed! love the quilt!

  4. I think I need to make a birdseed bench as a distraction... the deer come into my yard and eat my flowers! lol! Posies is a great quilt! Very Summery!
