Quilting, kayaking, burger & beer

Another beautiful day. It started out with fog so thick we could not see the lake. As it turned out the lake was so calm that it turned out to be a great day to kayak. We have a two person ocean kayak. Our goal was to reach the Log & Cabin bar for a lunch. Sun with some clouds made it a great day. We saw a few Pelicans but not as many as last time. We passed some grasses. We have had a lot of rain and it shows with a lot of piers underwater. Even at our dock we decided to just go in for the shoreline. We saw two fishing boats and one pontoon boat. We arrived at our destination taking about 2 hours. We had Octoberfest beer, burgers with mushrooms, raw onions and Swiss cheese and chips. All was very good. The colors are just starting, some light oranges. Next week we hope to do some hiking at Devils Lake Park. We have take our daughters there when they were young, but never have done the hikes. May plan to stay overnight nearby. Fall is my favorite time of year, it just does not last long.

I did finish sewing and attaching the light 6in blocks to the main 365 quilt. It looks so nice. 

I decided to join another small quilt along by Humble Quilts. It is called the “Quilt Matters.” http://humblequilts.blogspot.com/2016/09/quilters-madder-part-1.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+HumbleQuilts+%28Humble+Quilts%29

These are supposed to be fabrics that are a dull or mulled red. I don’t have many of these, so just used some of my stash and will just play along with everyone. First part is pretty easy and finished sewing my blocks when we got back from kayaking.

We had a nice weekend with our daughter Cherith. We now need to guide Abigail as she tries to make another decision regarding her schooling. Of course as parents we can only suggest, she will need to decide. 

Well back to quilting my Allietarecherith…

Oh I also purchased some thread from connecting threads as they have a great sale. I really love this thread so wanted to take advantage.

Happy Quilting and a great week!
