We left Rockport last week and settled into our new campground near Columbus, TX.
We were sad to leave the coastal area until we arrived and saw the view from our site in among tall pecan trees on the Colorado River. Every once in awhile, cattle show up on the other side and there are plenty of birds to view....hopefully, I will get a few in some photos too.

Since I haven't taken many photos of our new location, here are a few more from Rockport of the birds having a lazy afternoon...
well, most of them were relaxing....
|i'm not squawking!!! you are!|
Just before we left Rockport, we saw a big White Pelican near the shore. We are familiar with the small Brown Pelicans, but wow! the White Pelicans are huge! Okay, granted, I have seen many big birds like the Herons, Egrets, and Cranes, but to see a male White Pelican up close and near people for a comparison was quite a surprise.

I never got around to posting photos on my blog of the Whooping Cranes that we saw in a farmer's field, so here's a couple of them...
On The Cutting Board
I have been having a blast working on my scrappy quilts. I have been adding applique to each top. Special quilts to keep the owners warm and hopefully, make them smile.
For the Christmas Winter theme top, I added a snowman and a pair of mittens. I got the cute designs from Colleen Parry's Christmas Goodies clipart.
I picked bright colors for a cheerful snowman.
Once I finished the snowman, I started working on a teddy bear theme top. I found this teddy bear online. Isn't he adorable?couching. There's no way a little finger is going to get under the balloon strings or pick one out.
Well, I have one more finished top - the transportation theme to applique. I have already decided to add a train with a few colorful cars. I have more cut-up quilt kits to sew as well. I should also start working on some more Happy Campers soon. Spring is around the corner and many people are starting to plan their warm weather camping trips, so I better get busy and restock!
