Back at last, my fingers were getting worried!!

This is for Bia, I have been working on the poppies for two weeks now, but on and off, with the boys here couldn't touch Gert the flirt, so today was my big day,  I am about 3/4's done, I still have the center and the last border....Oh forgot, all the pebbles in the center of the poppies!!!
Just loving it!!!!

Lions, tigers, and bears Oh My!!!!

The guys are back, it is now 20:00H   No fish in, but they played with the dolphins, a whole family, then they caught a shark, but he turns around himself so fast that he cut the line, then they saw a Poisson lune, a funny fish, I will look for a picture, it came right up to the boat!!!  All in all a great day for them.....

Big game fishing contest for the next three days!!

Not sure if that is how to say it, but it is the 
for the next three days,
We were up at 5am, got the boat ready, sardines in place, the huge fishing polls, and of course the picnic.
The departure was at 7am they have about 20 miles to go out to the fishing zone and at 9:30 they can start putting their lines in the water......  at 16H all lines must be out of the water, and they should be on their way back, unless they hooked a fish.  I think they have two hours after lines up to get the fish in, but each catch has to be announced, even if they loose it.  I am not very good with fishing language, I love to go with the guys, but I rather talk patchwork!!!

René and René of course father and son!!!!
Antoine and his father in law, he is a rugby man!!(Antoine)

Eric, René's farther in law, he is in charge of cutting the sardines and making the special mixture!!!!
there is only 11 cases!!

Off  they go!!!

A super beautiful day for them, hope it is like this all day long....

Playing with feathers and a little pillow quilt!!!

I am  happy with the centers and the separating triangles, but my feather border is so so in the spine, maybe it is because the back is off white and I used soft green olive thread, the front looks great but that spine to me is to PPP and more PPP

A Happy weekend!!!
