As my son would say, "The fishing was fabulous, but the catching was dreadful." We rented a little boat to take us out to the middle of the lake where we were SURE we would catch some gorgeous trout. The only catch we had was of this furry bear walking along the edge of the shore. Seriously.....in the middle of the day??????
I was glad that we were fishing from the boat and not the shore!!!
The scenery was just gorgeous and we did enjoy ourselves.
The weekend provided me with lots of time for some soothing hand sewing. I do find it very relaxing and have always loved to sew or knit in the car as we travel.
Years ago I "inherited" a sewing box from my DH's maiden aunt. She loved to embroider and the box was filled with pillowcases, lace, dishtowels, potholders and other items that she had never gotten around to finishing. I grabbed a few of her potholders and worked on them as we drove.
I was also able to finish my first block from the Raggedy and Friends BOM. I have decided to use reds, pinks, purples and blues in the quilt.
As well, I finished the Christmas stocking that I started earlier this year. I still need to make one more before Christmas.
Today and tomorrow I will be watching two little ones so there will not be a lot of sewing being done around here. Our daughter and SIL will be celebrating their anniversary. I'll take the wee ones over the sewing any day. They are only little for a short while.
We have a hawk family that has set up residence in one of our trees. They are gorgeous creatures, but they are incredibly noisy. I do not know how they catch their prey with the screeching that they do. Needless to say, the other birds in the yard do not appreciate their presence.
Can you see how big this bird is?
I hope to finish off my Schnibble for the month as well as my barn block later this week. I will be back to show them when they are done.
