Just as I was about to post some winter photos, I saw that I never published this post that has been sitting in limbo since August. I was about to delete it, but I had to share the photos of my girls jumping in the grass and our praying mantis friends. They remind me that The homecoming is within reach.
|We were hanging out on the little bench on our front porch and discovered this little hatchling. The metal disc is a part of a 1" covered button blank for scale.|
|The little dude is so unbelievably adorable! Rob and I have enjoyed rain/thunderstorms from our front porch and have watched adult praying mantids catch and eat little gnats and mosquitoes trying to escape the rain. Our Mantis friends can stay.|
|This beauty guards my tomatoes. M named it "Sneakers" and L named it "Flowers."|
|Measures around 10cm|
|This is a little skirt I made for M using The Long Thread's "Backgammon Skirt" tutorial. I think I'll use the idea again for The homecoming.|
|Just a closeup of the fun hemline|
|Barefoot in the grass, always a favorite|
|On the count of three, ready? 1...2...|
Trying to be patient here, but really, spring, you can come any time. We want our Daddy back!
