Last night I decided that I needed to make something for my Pa. He is turning 90 this month. My artsy sister is making him a beautiful painting, and I wanted to make him something also.
After a long, long, long look at Julias and my fabric stash, the proverbial "light bulb" went off. I wanted to do something useful, but meaningful at the same time. I decided to make something to represent his most favorite part of his 30 Acre property
He looks at this pond every day and worked very hard at designing, and making this pond everything he dreamed of. It is a playground for the kids, a fabulous bird bath for the ducks and the herons, and entertainment for my Pa. My sister thankfully posted some pictures a while back of this pond, and the fun that Pa observes from his window every summer day
Here is my spin on his Love...made with my love
Pas' Pond Pillow
Some of the wildlife we have seen at the pond
The inlet rock fountain he made with his own hands, in his eighties, and the water flowing over the rocks
The sandbar area, and some super cute little mushrooms
The various trees surrounding the pond
The water outlet, and the old tree submerged in the water where the boats get tethered
One of the boats (pirate ships, as he calls them) resting and waiting for the pollywog hunting, and pirate escapades to begin
Finally a cute little owl hanging from the sail which is representative of the inflatable parrot my Gram hangs from the pirate ship every year..
Because only Pirate ships are in the Caribbean you know~
Thanks for looking, and for the lovely comments from my readers, I really appreciate the love!
