My little great-niece, Marin, likes turtles. I made a template of the turtles and then appliqued the turtles onto this quilt top. I'll quilt it when I get home. I used "thread painting" in the corner for grass. Hmmmmmm, should I put eyes on the turtles . . . ?

This first picture is President Buchanon's house, now a B&B where Jeff and Josh stayed when they visited the school last month.
The rest are various pictures of the campus. Isn't the cathedral so totally impressive?
Good work, Josh, getting into this great school!
So other than a break from the rain when we toured Josh's school Saturday morning - more on that later - it started raining when we stopped in Mercersburg, and it rained and it rained and it rained and then it rained some more.
Check out the creek when we walked the dogs on Friday, here it is on Sunday. I love the rain and I was happy to stay in one place for a few days so I could do some sewing but we started getting a bit concerned when Harvey began listing to the right. By the time
we left Mercersburg, he was six inches in the mud. Jeff was convinced he would get stuck in the mud but Harvey pulled out of it like a champ!

Jeff here. Went into town today, and got a good look around as 4 new tires got installed on the Tacoma. Kind of a sad little town, with it's best days behind it, but a few interesting things to note. First off, like most of West Virginia, there are very few flat surfaces, so you get here through a series of roads twisting through steep valleys. Then you come upon something like this. It's an insanely huge lunatic asylum built during the civil war. It had to e well over a quarter of a mile long. The town is too small to have a bar, but it has this. Click on it to get an idea of just how ginormous it is.
Then there is the issue of non-sequiter businesses. I bought my tires today at a furniture and tire store. Really.
Last, we see why we only purchase seafood in coastal states. Those are some skanky skallops.
