perspectives

For many of my neighbors summer officially commences this week with the conclusion of the school year.


This seemed like a "summery" little wip to complete. Most of the quilting was already done and all I added were the beads, the binding, and some additional quilting.
Despite a ferocious thunderstorm and rain during the night, it's nice to still find these in the yard.

If you look closely, you can still see the raindrops.

"If you do not raise your eyes you will think that you are the highest point." Very true...
