I didn't actually sew yesterday but I did iron some blocks that I finished Wednesday. These are 19 light blocks. Now I have 30 of 256 blocks made. The color in this photo is bad but there will be lots more photo opportunities to get it right. Last night I was just too tired to spend much time on it.
Laura got the first border on her scrappy veterans quilt.
We were so excited to have the sun back yesterday. We had a high temperature of 73 and it was wonderful. We decided to hike Little Wilson Falls because it's kind of a short hike (2.4 miles). It's been so rainy that we didn't want to get stuck on a slippery long hike. It was a good decision. If you go to the link you can see that LWF is usually a low flow stream. Yesterday it was roaring. All of the rivers around here are very high. The hike was wet in parts but easily passable.
The hike ends at a point on the Appalachian Trail. There was anote there for AT hikers to tell them to take the LWF trail down to another intersection point because the AT crosses this "stream" and it was completely impassable yesterday....and probably for a few more days.
We enjoyed the hike and Laura said we walked 8000 steps, although it didn't feel like it.
It always amazes me to see trees growing right out of rock slabs.
On the way home we saw a bunch of cars on the side of the road and that can only mean a moose jam. Laura got to see her first moose! This is a young one and it was quite far away, hence the bad photo.
We were going to float in the pond after we came home but all the rain we have had really chilled the water and we retreated to the deck instead for some sunning followed by a relaxing afternoon of reading.
We will wait for a couple of dry days before we do one of the longer hikes so that the trails have time to dry out some. Luckily, we have another week here!
