My design wall is pretty boring. I have completed three 9 x 12 pieces for AAQI that will be shipped off this week and for some reason I have been really busy with things other than quilting. I am working on the Volume 4 of the 100 Blocks by Quiltmaker. Since Volume 3 came out there is renewed frenzy! But it is fun. If you get volume 3, check out my name! LOL. I am famous!
And we have been river watching. We live in Baton Rouge, LA along the Mississippi River. Here is the river downtown. You can see the river beyond the trees, but the water you see is on what is called the batture. The men are on the top of the levee which is the bike path we often ride.
The oange thing is called a Tiger Dam and is filled with water, strapped down to the asphalt and supported by sand bags filled by the prisoners. It is supposed to add about 18 inches to a levee top.
We shall see.
We went to the Bonnet Carre Spillway yesterday and the pictures do not do justice to the force of the water. Incredible.
And this is one of the shelters in the campground inside the spillway. No one lives here so don't worry about that. And the fresh water clears out the old water in Lake Pontchartrain. Shrimp and Crawfish harvests will be booming in the next three or four years! Yeah!
