Quilted and Bound... and Red Headed Woodpecker Sighting

and ready to head towards Massachusetts. :)

My friend Elizabeth will be the recipient of this little quilt.  She and I are members of a blog where 12 friends have been making something for each other , one friend at a time, one friend a month.  We each got to choose an idea for one month and someone chose the Schnibbles quilt patterns.  We could use any of them that we wanted and I also put a little spin on the one I made for Ely.  The circles in the center are made to float on top of the quilt.  I hope she likes it once it arrives.  This is a 2 year old UFO that I am glad is finally making its way home. :)

My hubby and I drove up to Kerr Lake for a picnic and I shot these photos while we were there.  Enjoy!







While we were at the lake we had the pleasure of spotting a red headed woodpecker flying from one tree to the other.  I shot these photos before he decided he wanted nothing more to do with us and flew away to a tree farther down the lake.






I am linking this post up over at Connie's @ Freemotion By The River and Linky Party Tuesday!

Awesome details, many thanks to the writer. It is incomprehensive to me now, but in common, the effectiveness and importance is frustrating. Thanks again and fantastic luck!
