Thursday’s Rambles ~ 1 March 2012

Some fabrics I pulled out of my stash for a 60×60 quilt someone wants me to make them. Just has to be blue and grey with the state of Nevada somewhere on it. I have a design in mind. 🙂 After seeing them in the picture, I’m not sure about the two in the middle of the pack. I’ll have to go pick up a few FQ’s from Windy Moon.

A small project I’m working on using Lauren & Jessi Jung’s Flora fabric…using English paper piecing hexies.

Saw this on the way to work…looks like someone was drunk and didn’t realize that you can’t barrel through two work buildings and go down the hill to the road.

Tuesday’s sunrise with a big ole fog bank….

Today is windy with more snow on the way…just like yesterday.

Last Saturday after driving up to Pyramid Lake we came back home via Wadsworth to 80…just before Reno is Lockwood where we spied a new park. They’ve re-dug the riverbed in that area, un-doing the damage by the Corp of Engineers so many years ago…now the Truckee River flows through lots of meanders. The fishies are a lot happier too.

We rented a great movie the other night. The Way, an Emilio Estevez movie staring his dad, Martin Sheen. Highly recommend it.

Enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon ~

I know that we here in Reno, Nevada will be paying dearly for the nice mild and sunny temps (we’ve already paid with two deadly devestating wildfires) that we’ve had this winter…but until then, we’ve been enjoying our time outside.

Photos taken on Sunday afternoon. Lucy and Leo were especially happy about the sunshine as they only get to go out in the backyard when we’re there with them.

A Red-Tail Hawk, at Rancho San Rafael Park…he too was enjoying the sunshine.

Gone to the Birds…

Red-Tail and Kestrel taken at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno…Scrub Jays and Robin at my house (taken through a dirty window…sorry).

And…hopefully this pretty guy is one of the Ranger’s or neighbor’s kitty…he’s pretty well fed for a stray (taken at the park).
