DD#1's quilt is coming along - I have the top together and am pleased with it. I added a border onto it to take care of the size issue and I like it even better. But today's problem I cut the backing and forget to leave extra on the length - aaargh. I'll deal with it tommorrow. For today I changed my blog to something more peaceful and meditative. With all the calculating mistakes I'm making - I need that.
So due to a lack of quilt related pictures - I thought I'd share these photos from something remarkable we saw during our vacation - sea turtle nesting.
In this first picture - you can see the tracks the sea turtle made during the night coming out of the water. They estimated that she weighed around 200 pounds!
They sometimes have to move back the nest, away from the high tide lines.
Then the eggs are counted and reburied at a safer distance. They looked like soft. leathery ping-pong balls.
Lastly the area is roped off - hopefully no one will bother it.
