The birds at Crane's Roost Lake


After lunch and not remembering that the libraries are closed on Fridays here, I was left with some time to fiddle away so I took my camera and went to the lake behind the apartment building where I live and took several shots of birds. I also too shots of flowers and fencing/railings and just general shots of the area that I will share from time to time so you can get a better idea of where I live and why I like it here so much.


The first two images were taken relatively close to the birds and the one below was shot with a zoom lens because the were on the other side of the lake; maybe a quarter of a mile away.


As far as the quilting on my latest quilt, well I am free motion quilting, in short spurts. I am trying to get my shoulder and neck muscles back in shape. It's been some time since I have sat and quilted for extended periods.

Hey, Juanita, I love hearing that your move is all that you expected it to be. [Well, with the exception of the library being closed on Fridays].
You know I'm looking forward to your new adventures.

Glad you're enjoying it. In the first picture, the water looks like shibori!
