One things for sure, with all the rain we have been getting I have been sewing up a storm and chugging out those UFOs!
My Bowtie UFO is finished…just waiting for mama to perfect her quilting skills…
Then I hauled out the Tumbler UFO…and added 8 blocks to each row to make this quilt top a lot wider…
…and now I am adding to the length! I am thinking BIG!
It poured all day Sunday but that didn’t stop us from going out for our usual hike. This time we went to Skutz Falls to check out the river! Now keep in mind that 2-3 weeks ago we were experiencing a draught and this river was at dangerously LOW levels! There was fear that the salmon didn’t have enough water to get up stream! Well that certainly isn’t the case now…YUP, it’s been raining! That long cement box over to the right, is a man made fish ladder to help the salmon get up and around the rapids.
Native fishermen were busy using spears to catch some of the fish before they completed their journey!
Of course I am thinking of all those poor mama salmons unable to lay those eggs…but such is life…I guess. I hate hunting of any kind…but I do love salmon! Go ahead and call me a hypocrite…I eat meat, I just don’t want to see the bodies!
Anyway I didn’t let that ‘dampen’ my spirit…the rain did a good job of that on its own! :o) It was nice to get out and experience the Fall season and breath in that wonderful fresh air! Ahhhh…Fall is like a good cup of coffee…good to the last drop!
Hope you got out this weekend and experienced nature…regardless of the season!
Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
