Summer, Lorelei, etc

First of all, this is Lorelei holding the baby turtle she found week before last.  We took her to the creek for the fist time this year that day....and the very first thing she found and caught it.  She had a bucket and kept it in it or had it in her hand the whole time we were there.  And we were there a LONG time.  She almost caught another one.  Of course she wanted to bring it home, but instead she turned it loose before we left.

Then last week she wanted to go back...we took her the backroads to get there.  And as we were coming up behind Bridgeton, up the creek from the bridge, there were two eagles in one dead tree.
Before we got pulled off and stopped, one of the eagles flew down behind the tree.  But I got several photos of this one.
I was more thrilled than Lorelei with this.

Along with her staying with us 3 or 4 days a week, our older daughter was back in Indiana for a while.
She and I worked several days and we made these:
First the quilt top above,
And then made this table runner at the top of the photo, and that is the backing for it on the bottom.  They were made with leftover fabric from the quilt top.  Both were my daughters design and choice of fabrics.  We both did cutting and both did sewing.  You will have to click on these to get a better view.

Not sure how much visiting I will get done or if I will even try to post again for a while.  Lorelei is supposed to come tomorrow evening, and I know she is going to want to go to the creek again and she has also been wanting to go fishing at the strip pit.
