Bees, deer, and bags

May has been very busy here.
Spring has finally come to our area- much later than in other parts of the country, I suppose, but it is here!!!
Trees are leafing out, the grass is growing and my herb garden looks great!

I took a couple of pictures of some of visitors to our backyard- bees and deer. The bees were in the ornamental pear trees that line the driveway. There were so many of them you could actually hear the buzzing from the house- a good 90 feet away.

A few days later I was in the sewing room when I caught movement in the backyard out of the corner of my eye; I grabbed the camera and ran outside where a few young deer were grazing in the grass.

They are so beautiful...

I have been busy in the studio as well, working every night after school as well as putting in many hours on weekends.
This is the newest addition to the shop: the Field Bag. I really like it. It is made of dark oak waxed canvas (brown with a tinge of gray) with brown leather accents. The Field Bag has bellows pocket in the front, a spacious interior with slip pockets, a back pocket with a leather and snap closure, and a clever hand cut leather and buckle closure strap. I also added a D-ring on the side, for water bottle, keys, or dog leash - why not?:)

Let me know what you think...
Have a great week,
