And we found a cool spider tunnel web:
The second closeup picture shows the spidey in its lair!
Sunday we drove to Geneva, Illinois, to explore what I had read was a quaint little old town, which is true, and they were holding a Folk Musical Festival on an island in the river so we wandered there and found some entertainment amongst the antique hippies.
The railroad bridge was a busy place, several trains crossing and sometimes going both directions. There is this sort of oddball windmill in a park there and Bob felt his Dutchboy ancestry calling or something. It was perfect summer days for us. We continued on to Galena for a stopover but decided not to spend the night. It reminded me of Stillwater on steroids, if you don't live around here that doesn't make sense, but it didn't hold a lot of allure for me. It was a bit of a long drive home after that. But I thoroughly enjoyed all the fields and little towns that we went through, that is to me just as scenic as the mountains or the ocean. Actually, I can't really think of anyplace I have travelled to that I haven't found to be interesting and beautiful in its own way, yes, even the Badlands, even Nebraska!
So now home again, finished a quilt on Labor Day and have the next one ready to go on. Yesterday I had the Ladies Sewing Society group at the store:
We are nearing completion of our block-of-the-month club, I will have pictures of some of the projects next month as they get blocks together. They are a good group!
