Hi there! Uh huh, my bloggin' is sporadic at best, but anyways we've been offline again and will be for awhile. Meantime....I've kinda taken up quilting - in the most rudimentary manner, of course. I'm using what scraps I have on hand for the most part and winging my way to a small, baby-sized quilt.
Not perfect, but it's workin'.
All the squares are 2in. which is way to small to start with, but I usually do things the hard way. Sigh. More on this later.
This is the wildlife viewing point at the Hiwassee Refuge.
After hearing about the Sandhill Cranes over at Chipmunknits Goodman and I decided to take a roadtrip and get a look at them ourselves. (My camera wouldn't take a great pic so I'm in the market for a new one.)
The black bird in the pic is an Asian Crane. Nobody knows how it got to the refuge, but lots of folks are flocking to see it.
After viewing the birds we followed signs to a memorial to the Cherokee Removal.
Oh, what a sad, sad memorial. It's really hard to understand how that happened.
Hopefully it's a reminder, like the ones we see about the Holocaust, to never forget so we don't make the same mistakes again.
Hope your having a great New Year!
