Good to Wow!!!

Hey, friends! Thank you for the sweet words about the quilt! I truly do appreciate it! More projects are underway here, but for now, I need to share a really cool "God moment" with you!

As we were going out of town late yesterday afternoon, my eagle eyed hubby spotted something on our neighbor's fence post. He drove slowly toward it and stopped to see our reactions. Y'all, it was a hawk! He was just perched on top of the post looking around his open fields. It was so cool! I grabbed my camera and changed the lens to a zoom because I thought he would quickly take flight. He did not! That critter just sat and posed for me to take 50 million shots! Wish I could say that about my boys!!! Oh, well.

Here is the before picture. I have done absolutley nothing to enhance the shot. And, this preditor was in full sun. So, the sun is filling my camera to boot. Can't wait to give this a try and see what happens. I will post my after shot on Thursday and let you see how it turns out.

I just hopped over to Jill's blog to link up with her photos this week, and oopsie! She has a great sooc (straight out of camera) challenge. It's using sidewalk chalk! Oh, well, I will just show y'all what I do with this critter on Thursday. But, for cool ideas and pics with fun chalk, go visit Jill!

Y'all have a great day!

Oh, wow! That is beautiful, girl. I've been so bad about taking pictures lately. I'm hoping with summer to get some going.
