Fishing Anyone??

Larry shows off his 21 inch Bas that he caught Saturday morning. He was the BIG winner that day.

LeRoy's catch of the day is a 20-1/2inch Bass. Not bad for a fall Saturday morningg.

LeRoy and Larry enjoy their day fishing in North eastern at Mirror Lake here in Rome City, In.

3 barn quilt blocks all in one location.

 The idea behind the barn quilt blocks began in Iowa. When a daughter wanted to pay a tribute to her mother who was an avid quilter. She painted one barn quilt block and mounted it on an old barn The idea has caught on and now they even have "Barn Quilt Tours". This is a 4X4 Tumble weed pattern mounted at the end of our Bed and Breakfast.
 This is a 4X4 Star pattern mounted on our Pole barn.

This 8X8 large barn quilt block is mounted to the East on our bank barn. The pattern is the Bear Paw design. As you drive west on Northport road you can see it right above the corn field. Maybe I will have 2 more next year that you will only be able to view by staying at Mirror Lake B&B. You'll have to find them. All 3 barn quilt blocks were painted by me Kathy Fought.

Jeff has no trouble fishing in Eastern Indiana.

It pays to go out early and fish in the mornings. Jeff had 2 great morning for fishing and took advantage of it. I think someone is going to have a great fish fry for supper tonight!!!!!

He enjoys a few hours of early morning fishing and his wife gets to sleep in.. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!!

He was catching this fish right when I was calling him for breakfast. Oh yes, it was hard to come in for breakfast now...

What a nice "bass", yes I said" bass". Jeff holds up a nice bass, on this early morning he catch many a fish in only a few hours. WHAT FUN!!!!

Fishing in Eastern Indiana at Mirror lake B&B

Not bad for 2 hours of fishing in the sun in Eastern Indiana at the private Mirror Lake bed and Breakfast. Fish Fry here we come 22 fillets.

It really wasn't a contest but Jed and Paula are comparing fish, while Phil is busy cleaning fish. I caught 6 nice size fish too. But someone has to grill our supper!!

They practiced on the pier before they got in the boat.

Great day for fishing and great day for the Blue Giles. Today was a catch and release day. Relaxing in the sun and fishing in Eastern Indiana on the private Mirror lake.

Larry caught fish but it wasn't Catherine's day. She enjoyed the sun, bird watching and the company.

Even fishing from the raft and pier is fun. Look I got a fish says 7 year old Adara, first time ever!

Barn Quilts

This is 1/4 (4x4) of the Bear Paw (8x8) barn quilt block design. We figure it will take 3 guys, the scissor lift, and me to mount this 8x8 quilt block on the peak of our bank barn. Waiting for better weather to hang it. I hope to be part of the Barn Quilt Block Tour. Bear Paw
The Tumbleweed barn quilt.
The Star Barn quilt
This winter I have painted 3 barn quilt blocks. One 8x8 the Bear Paw and two 4x4's barn quilts the Star and the Tumbleweed. They are mounted on the B&B and our pole barn.
