On Friday night, I made sailboats. I’m working on a rather unusual wall hanging that I was commissioned to make, and I’m having a of of fun with it.
I don’t love making HST’s, but I do love the little pile of shavings after they’ve been squared up.
They are now part of a larger piece, but I’m not ready to share yet.
Last week I also finished two more doll quilts and 4 more mug rugs. I’ve stopped making any more for now, to get some ‘real’ projects done.
On Saturday, we were invited to a family BBQ, but I still wanted to spend some time on the water before we went. We live very close to the Potomac River, so we managed to get two hours of paddle time and still get to the BBQ in plenty of time.
I like to paddle near the shore and look for things to photograph. Pretty flowers, and lacy leaves.
The trees have to hang on mightily to keep standing upright.
I’ve never noticed this tiny little inlet before, with a small ‘waterfall’.
More pretty flowers on another bank.
And the light was right for some pretty reflections.
The bridge in for forefront is an old aqueduct from the heyday of the C&O Canal. In the distance is a modern highway bridge.
As we were getting ready to get off the river, we happened upon this heron. We were able to get very close to him, and he posed for a long time. I’m not sure what he is, but perhaps a juvenile Night Heron? If anyone knows, please feel to educate me.
And now another weekend is coming to a close. I have a couple of projects prepped for hand work this week, and big plans for even more new projects!! Will we ever run out of ideas or fabric??
