Baby Ducks and Fish

Are these baby ducks just the cutest!. They were swimming around our pier Sunday morning when I got back from the sand bar. I cannot believe how tiny they are. The mother duck must have hatched a 2nd batch.

Sunday morning, AJ went out to work on his crab boat. He has been installing a new depth finder/GP device. He has left the little gray boat in the water over night. A fish was laying in the bottom. We think it must have jumped out of the water and landed in the boat. Our next door neighbor says it is a mud shad. When I took Scrappy for his after dinner walk, I saw another fish, same as this one, up on some rocks.
I remember eating shad and shad roe when I lived in Lancaster, PA.

More Quilts

Here is the quilt I am making for my sister. It is a BOM that I bought each month in 1998. I just need to add the borders to make it queen size. I am going to have Della quilt it on her longarm.

This quilt is part of my scrap therapy. All the greens are from my stash.
The only fabric I had to purchase was the background and backing. I plan
to quilt this one myself.
The blocks are hanging from my flannel back plastic table cloth. I love it and it only cost @ $5
I am planning a mini quilt retreat at home this weekend to get some of my project finished.
Stay tuned for more....

I Do Quilt!

Here is a picture of the quilt hanging in my living room. You may recognize the pattern: Underground Railroad by Quilt in the Day.
I took the classes from Eleanor Burns - her signature is on the label. Note my ship in the last row is sailing the wrong way. I have trouble with flipping my pieces so some of my blocks are quite original :)
