picnic to net lake, 4-29-08

When we started out this morning the sun was shining and no wind. By the time we got to the Net River the wind was blowing and cold! I wish I had gotten the photos of the chairs by the river and Mark sitting there. We did eat our lunch at the riverside but had to abandon for higher less windy ground.

Here is Mark, all bundled up, notice he is sitting closer to the car that is still putting off a little heat from the engine. In about twenty minutes he started to whine that he was too cold and we left.

Here is a beaver dam right beside the road which I thought was pretty kool. A guy came roaring up in a pickup with Indiana plates, gets out and sets a minnow trap, for bait i guess. We saw some fish that Mark thought were pretty good size. Gee, they wouldnt even be bait fish where I come from. Anyway, I thought the whold think was great. You get to see so much neat animal stuff here. And then this has to be one of the koolest things I saw that day. A box turtle on the side of the
road.Mark doesnt think this is a big deal, but it sure
is to me. Even though it was cold, still a good day.

I am still trying to get the hang of getting the postings and photos in order. They never look the way they do when you preview. So, the photos are switched around at the top a bit. Oh has been cold and rainy all weekend so far. Poor Mark, he works 4 tens, and of course it will be warm and sunny on Monday.
I started making a sample for Quilts n Stuff in Escanaba. She is carrying my hand dyes, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a sample wall hanging with my fabric. I got ten blocks done today and will do the other fifteen tomarrow. I will quilt simply, I dont even think I will bother with a border, will just have to see how it goes. I will post photo when done.
Patiently waiting for the sun to come out and warm up above 50.

I like the picture with Mark by the car-that would have been me. I am so cold natured. The beaver dam was really neat! The quilt would be perfect to show off your great dying job!

What a cute honu! It takes time to learn how to drag & set photos on blog. I load them all then I do a picture square dance move. Around and around they go. I'm sure there is more professional way to do it.

Don't you wish the weather would cooperate! I think it hit a balmy 63 here yesterday!

Oh my! I got the fabric in the mail yesterday! IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL! Now I just have to figure out what special project I am going to use it for. Thank you so much!
