Day One of the Hunt.
These pictures are from my perspective, as Cerwin did not take any pictures while out in the field. He was on Farm N – Stand #2 – while I enjoyed the comfort of the hotel and the fellowship of the other ladies.
After breakfast several ladies went shopping for the day – some with one of the hunt vans, while others went on their own. Many ladies stayed at the hotel. Some enjoyed the quiet of their room to read or watch TV. A few of us stayed in the lobby where there was a lot more activity.
This is what I am working on right now – a picture of our grandson Ian. I stitch photos of our grandchildren when they are at a preschool age. As you can see, it is done in quarters as the pattern comes in four pieces. I will finish the third quarter today. When I finish the final quarter, I will get it professionally framed.
I have finished 14 pictures – as I have also stitched one of our grandson Elijah who only lived for 5 months. Ian is #15, then I will do Jared and Jesse. After they are finished, I will do some creative pictures for our children.
The ladies who sat at the far left were the ones who took the phone calls when someone harvested a deer – and his farm location. I could hear the conversations, so that was fun. As ladies returned from shopping (center) they looked over the list of those who had gotten deer – hoping to see their husband’s name.
Toward evening I moved away from the window to one of the well lighted tables to continue stitching. (It is more comfortable in the chair next to the window, but this works for a short period of time.) Next to me a lady was working on the puzzle, and at the next table they were deciding what game to play. One of the women bought three new games while out on her shopping excursion.
It was difficult to pick out Cerwin because the hunters were all dressed alike. 🙂
