Today I had a play day with my husband in his little SuperCub airplane. I took this photo with my iPhone. (It just amazes me what I can do with a tiny iPhone!) You are looking at the tallest peak in North America, Mt. McKinley or better known as Denali to Alaskans. According to Wikipedia, Denali means "High One," in Athabaskan. I have previously heard it meant, "Great One," in Athabaskan. (I don't always trust Wikipedia). Athabaskans are a native Alaskan tribe found in southcentral Alaska. The river in view is the Susitna River just outside of one of our favorite towns, Talkeetna. A very beautiful part of the world!
The sun is shining so when I got home I decided to grab a quick photo of my latest quilting project. I pulled it off the frame yesterday because it is time to turn it to finish quilting the final two borders.
A quick look at the back side. This is a good time to see if I need to add more quilting somewhere.
Next summer one of our little airplane trips will have to be down to Homer where I can get a photo of this quilt in an appropriate setting. Homer is on Katchemak Bay which is a stomping ground for whales, Humpbacks and Orcas. I call this quilt, "Katchemak Baywatch." It makes me sew happy to see it close to being done!
One last photo from today's flight. Talkeetna is known for its "Hippie-ish," residents...or maybe just "non-conformists" like most of Alaska! In the red field is a peace-sign one can only see from the air.
