A random fact: I have taken up the sport of trapshooting! Bruce and I have been going to the range regularly for the past six months or so and are progressing so well we will be shooting in a tournament at the end of November. In case you're curious, I shoot a Remington 11-87 semi-auto with a 28" barrel. :-)
Last night we were shooting trap doubles and I shot a 35! It's 35 out of a total of 50 targets, but I'd only been hitting about half up until now. Hopefully I can maintain that consistency and keep getting better. In the tournament you shoot 100 singles at 16 yards, 100 handicap singles (19 yards for the ladies, and up to 27 yards for the men), and 100 doubles.
Another 35 - that's about the number of readers I get on my blog each day. I don't know if they are the same 35 people, or a different 35 each time. Anyway, I appreciate the visits, especially since I haven't been posting regularly. Thanks for hanging in there!
Quilt-related news: Honu III is complete (except the sleeve, which goes on tonight). I will post photos ASAP. He is traveling with me to Art Quilt Tahoe in 2 weeks, along with "Night Light" and "Croton Chorus" for a special display of work by the scholarship recipient...ME! I'm also working on my challenge quilt based on the theme "Benign" or "Be Nine" aptly named for AQT's ninth year AND prepping my supplies for class. I will post photos of some of these things, too.
