a little road trip

Wow, lots to do = no recent blog posts! I do have several things to share with you, pictures I have been saving up. Here is an attempt to capture a true work of art--

This was taken Saturday out on the road somewhere between Grey Eagle and Nancy's house, between rain showers and sunshine. It was possibly the #1 rainbow I have ever seen. Much brighter than these pictures show, and a double one visible through the entire span. Impossible to get it into a little electronic gadget, but I tried! I know it doesn't look like much here, but each color band was very distinct, not all blended in like most rainbow sightings. So I thought I better let you share in this, and also let you know that we did not find any pot of gold! But did have a fun overnight with Nancy, Leisl and Maggie. Caught up on lives, shared ideas, did a little sewing/knitting, ate some good food, and before we knew it we were pulling out of her driveway. I have continued my learning experience with hand piecing some quilt blocks from the Farmer's Wife book. I now have 6 blocks (6" square) completed. Only 100+ to go!

Hand-piecing is kind of fun, don't you think?

Not sure I have found the fun yet, but I'm willing to give it a go!
