Are you ever at loose ends
This afternoon, I thought I would just play a little bit. In cutting the pieces for the quilt I am working on, I have all these equilateral triangles left over. I decided to play with them. Not to really make anything...I just wanted to sew with no real plan. That way no worries about anything going wrong.
I pulled out a fabric to fuse them to, got the fusible on it and place the triangles on it and pressed into place. Then I got out my bobbins and found thread that went with them, or else was close enough. I plugged in my trusty sewing machine and began to use a few of the decorative stitches.
Other than this, I have also had the fishing bug the past few days. I fished for a couple hours the other night, and when we went to Linton the other day, we went on to Goose Pond...and we went fishing yesterday. The night I went by myself, I caught several...Large-mouth bass, bluegill, and one single crappie but it was the biggest I have ever seen.
Down at Goose Pond I caught two little yellow catfish...I had rather catch nothing as to catch them. I can barely stand to handle them to get them off the hook. They are about as bad as creek chub. It seems like the older I get, the more I hate to handle them. But if you catch them, there is no getting away from it. And yesterday, I caught a nice Small-mouth bass at Mansfield.
Since Roger does not care for fresh fish, it is strictly catch and release.
