I want to post my progress on the Shores of Hawks Run Hollow. I've managed some stitching time since my last post. I think this block with the fish is going to be one of my favorites.
Last week I made a trip to Welcome Stitchery in Crystal Lake. I did a small amount of stash purchasing... It's hard to go without coming home with something....
I picked up a new zippered mesh bag. Those are so handy to keep a project in. I just love them. I don't have to worry about curious cats pawing in my stitching bag, or someone spilling a can of pop on my stitching bag. Both events have happened in the past...
I have received some beautiful pink roses today from Mike for Valentine's day, also some dove chocolates.... what a nice surprise it was.
Yesterday we went over to Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi River to see if there were any eagles around. There weren't any there so we drove on up to Lock and Dam 13 at Fulton and found this
There must have been 50 eagles or more in the trees on the island near the dam. The only problem was that they were too far away to get any better pictures. But we were amazed to see so many. It was a really cold afternoon, so after leaving here we went back to our first stop and found several eagles had shown up ready to put on a show diving in the river for fish. So we had fun taking photos there for quite awhile.
I wasn't as quick getting the action shots of the eagles swooping down to the river to catch the fish, but my husband got some good ones. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, but really cold. After a little while standing outside doing this, I decided I'd had enough and retreated to the car to warm up and watch them from there. Luckily I'm always prepared with my stitching bag... :) so I was able to fit in some stitching time on a photo outing...gotta love that.
I've got a yummy supper in the crockpot for tonight, and have invited our son and his girlfriend to join us. I've even made Valentine cupcakes. So, our family will celebrate Valentine's Day tonight.
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you and Happy Stitching!
