Nothing like sticking your head in the lion's mouth

No, nothing quite like sticking your head in the lion's mouth if you want a drink of water.  This was from a little town over in Illinois...I believe Oakland.  I don't think I have ever seen a water fountain quite like this.
**************
We were to Sarah's for a night...I have a hard time settling down to blogging here once I am interrupted.  Even more so when I don't have anything interesting to tell.  I have been sewing more on the crumb quilt top...I have put one little outer border on but have to decide on one more to make it big as I want it.  Plus it does not look right with just one anyway.

I am hoping to get to do some work on it today...other than that it is too overcast to want to go out for photographs, though heaven knows I need a nice drive.

Cute! Looks like it belongs in a zoo. I bet kids love it. We had a lady in our quilt guild give a talk on borders at the last meeting. It was interesting and I know that I don't do enough with my borders. By the time I finish a quilt top, I just want to slap on a skinny border and a wide border and be done with it. Really need to study more interesting borders and try to use some in the future that would enhance the quilt more.

A very cute fountain. I've never seen anything remotely like this one.

Cute fountain!
Don't let an overcast day stop you from taking pictures. Some of the nicest pictures I have seen are on overcast days, when the photographer excluded the sky in the photograph.

That is a most unusual water fountain - I don't think I have seen anything like that one before.
I haven't been around the blogging world for a while, stuck between having not much to talk about and no pictures to put up. I really will have to get my act together and get back into it.

What a fun fountain....I bet little kids love drinking from it. I can relate to needing the drive. It feels so good to connect with people who love and understand the need. :)

That is too cool, I'm sure kids just love getting a drink out of that.

We have one of these at a local playground. Lily and Lucy loved it!
I think I'd feel a little silly. :)
