I took a closer photo so you could admire their handiwork. They chewed down this tree and ate the bark.
A closer view of the end of the log. See how much they chew?
The beaver have been around here for a long time. This is the decades-old remains of a tree they felled last time they were up at this end of the stream.
When we moved here seven years ago, there were no beaver in the stream at this end at all. They were all upstream. They moved down a few years ago and now even closer. I enjoy having them around, although I must admit it takes some time to get used to hearing the CRASH and SPLASH of trees falling in the night!

A Closetful of Doll Clothes. Maybe I didn't make it right, but it did not fit my Bethany the way I wanted.

This is Basic Bethany, by Helen Kish, and I added her to the household a few months ago. She is a "Classic Kish" meaning that she was made in the pre-Riley days of Helen Kish. She's all-vinyl and 12 inches tall. Her dress was a second attempt. The first attempt was made last week, from patterns specifically made for this doll and it was ill-fitting, in my opinion! The dress was too broad across the chest area and too loose overall, so I donated it to Emma Effner and tried again with a different pattern. This attempt came out much better!
Here's a good action shot:
