Farmer's Wife Quilt Along

Oh, Boy.  I just jumped into a fun, big, long project.  Have you heard of the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along?  Well, I've been wanting to do a sampler quilt for quite a while.  And a green and white quilt for quite a while.  And a good hard project to learn more.  This fit the bill for all of that.  After I saw this post at Freshly Pieced and this post from Camille Roskelley I decided to jump in.  111 blocks, 2 per week for a year or so.  One cool quilt when its all said and done.

It started a few weeks ago so I am playing catch up.  Here's what I've got...

Get the book, and join in!

We are making it Summer...

...even if the weather isn't with us!  The other day I was bummed out at the misty, foggy lake out the window (my in-laws beautiful window!) but then I asked myself "Have I ever photographed a foggy lake?"  Nope.  Time to get the camera out.  All I can say to you great nature are amazing.  Landscape photography is hard work.

Here's what we have been up to...a fun weekend with friends at the lake.

Finally got my loon photo!!  I've been trying to get a closeup of the loons for years.  After the eagle photo I have been on a mission.  Also started working on shadow photos, hmmmm always new things to learn.

Here's to capturing those not so perfect days that are, well, perfect.
