...in getting multitudes of HSTs made is to have a tennis tournament to watch!
And that would be Wimbledon, especially with the return of Venus and Serena Williams,
although Venus's attire is atrocious!
I am challenged with the use of the high contrast solid fabrics, so it is slow going.
I've already started to plan a border. Thinking maybe some red on white applique, but not floral.
We'll see if I have any enthusiasm left once the center is finished!
The tennis was rained out the other day, so we fit in a hike to the very sedate Coal Creek...which is more like a babbling brook. Tall ferns and giant flowering plants surrounded the creek and made for some great photo opportunities.
These flower stalks were on plants that were chest high and had fernlike leaves. My best guess is it is a subalpine Larkspur of some sort. Our hike was cut short when I saw an animal print in the mud around the creek and asked my DH what it might be.
"Probably a large cat," he said.
Suddenly realizing the effect that would have on me, he tried to change his opinion.
"No, probably someone's dog," was his second answer, even though we had seen no other prints besides sign of free range cattle on the entire walk. Needless to say, I decided I had had enough for the day. Still managed to get a fair amount of uphill cardio before my downhill retreat.
Back to HSTs and tennis!
