Heron County Park

Heron County is the name of the place...not the county it is in. It is in Vermilion County, Illinois..notice their Vermilion only has one 'l' and Indiana's Vermillion has two. But that is beside the point. We happened across this place quite by accident. It has an eagle viewing tower and this wetland boardwalk.

Much to our sorrow not a single thing was moving, but it was a beautiful day, and there was all these water lilies. I think they look like they are saying 'take me to your leader.'

I can't wait to go back there another day...it was so windy that day not even butterflies or dragonflies were moving. I have a feeling in wetter times that it is teaming with wildlife.
I spent the day in the basement...made a pair of pillowcases to go with the quilt I posted yesterday. Not sure, but may get it in the mail tomorrow. I sent my daughter pics and she liked how it looks..

I am looking for ideas for my next quilt...not that I don't have a million. I am looking for ideas on how to use a specific fabric I have. So far no luck...but I will force myself to keep looking.
