I finished part 15 of Castles In The Air , except for the beads on Sunday evening. I am putting it down for a few days to work on my Christmas Quaker Bell Pull, I want to get that finished in the next few weeks. Then its on to my HAED before picking up CITA again.
Saturday I went up to Hume, Virginia to a memorial service for my friend Karen's son Chris. It was held a pretty white church up in the mountains. The setting was great and I hope to get back to that area with my camera again one day next month. I did some pictures of the flowers for my friend and couldn't resist taking a few pictures of the trees and some of the church.
In front of the meeting house for the church there was a cut section of a large tree trunk. Someone had made a timeline of history on the face of the wood. You can't see it very well because the paper is very weathered but the bottom card is a tag for the Civil War. Someone went to a lot of work to work it out and it is a shame is has not been kept in better shape.
