Last night was the first pleasant night that I can recall that was perfect for a walk out at the lake – and this was actually the first time this entire summer that I felt like doing that! It had just been too hot.
Such a nice evening and we were lucky to see a mink searching for food last night just before sunset. It is not a really good photo of him, but he was too skittish to get very close to him and this was with the zoom lens.
And other of him, he ran back around us and I got him in a different position. I don’t know why I didn’t realize they were quite so small.
A variety of cypress trees that grow near the lake.
these are the seed pods up close – kind of weird looking
This is the visitor center at Lake Dardanelle State Park
The next POTC block started. This one is #18 – a little blurry – sorry about that – I will take another photo when it is finished.
I decided to go with the aqua and green batik for the squares that join all the blocks – I will put 4 blocks together soon so I can show you all how it looks and also so I can make more progress I have a lot of pre-cut 6 inch squares (plus more yardage) of these two fabrics that I was going to use for another project several years ago that turned into a table topper instead of a full size quilt – I need to use up these squares and thought it would be perfect for this project. The joining squares are 1 1/2 inch with the seam allowance included. For those that don’t remember this is an Inklingo project where you print your templates on fabric from your computer.
I finished the last little bit of a row on Joseph’s Coat last night and gave the quilt another crank down – almost the end in sight now – Row number 10 the last section is still to be unrolled. So nice to know the end is almost in sight!
It is cloudy today and so far not hot! Time for me to do something other than sitting at the computer or sewing – have a great weekend everyone.
