Fun in the Sun

Happy Independence Day and thank you to our military servicemen and women who keep us safe! Although it is a holiday, today is my first day back at work.  No matter...it will be time and a half so I can suck it up and help our incoming students celebrate!  Yesterday I finished a skirt I had begun before vacation.  I picked up a bolt of a nice plaid in a turquoise, brown and green colorway at a garage sale over in LaPine for fifty cents.  I didn't put a tape to it when I prewashed it, but there must have been 5 or 6 yards.  Well worth the price, even if I just used it to muslin. Fishing was a bust...only one rainbow trout caught by Tom.  We did try out a new lake to us (East Lake), which is where Tom caught the rainbow.  We fished hard on Crane Prairie one day until the wind blew us off.  It felt like we were on the bay and should be dropping crab pots!!!  Here are some pictures from the week:
